Freshers!

Hello everyone. Hope everyone is well!!! I know induction has not started yet but I would like to say an official welcome to our new batch of students.

Induction starts on Monday 19th but this depends on your programme. You may have received information through the post sent directly from our schools but if you haven’t then please visit this website: http://www2.gre.ac.uk/students/new/startdates. Select the school you belong to and it will list all the courses... just make sure you check your course details carefully. This applies to clearing applicants too. Good preparation is essential.

If you have completed both parts of your registration, please remember to apply for the 18+ Oyster card. Once you apply and pay... the University will confirm your student status and you will receive your card as soon as possible. Make sure you use it because it’s perfect for travel cards as you get 30% off.

Visit our very own fresher’s 2011 website: http://gre.ukmsl.net/freshers2011/. Check out what sort of events will take place and many more. Enjoy!!! Most importantly, read our blogs too. We will provide more useful information for you all and if there is anything you want us to cover then please compose an email to us and we will respond.

I know that some of you will be excited and some who may feel nervous about your first day. Don’t worry because if you are prepared then it will be ok... trust me. I still remember my first day when I went to my induction session! I was feeling alright to be honest. I met my new class mates and my tutors etc. Basically it’s like your first day in secondary school or college. The induction week is very important for you to realise what the University has to offer regardless of what campus you’re based at. Remember to have questions to hand so that you can address it with your personal tutor. You may also need to do a test (numeracy and literacy) this depends on your course. I know this because I had to do one! Therefore, just revise a bit and you will be fine.

So once again... welcome to the University of Greenwich!!!
