Induction sessions provide you with important information about your course and the University's academic and support services to ensure that you are fully prepared for when teaching starts the following week.
Attendance at induction sessions is compulsory. Please check your Welcome Week calendar based on your course, for the exact date, time and location of your induction.
During the course induction you will meet your course director and lecturers. You will find out more about your chosen course, its learning, teaching and assessment strategies and how to get the most out of your course. We will introduce you to Moodle, your Virtual Learning Environment, and discuss good academic practice. You will meet your fellow students and have many opportunities to ask questions.
Introduction to Student Services and Support
During this session, you will be given an overview of the different student services and support available for you throughout the duration of your course. This is an opportunity to meet the staff from the various support services.
'Meet and Greet' Social Event
This is an academic welcome social event with food, drinks and games – you will have the chance to mingle and network with other students and staff teaching.
Coventry University Students' (CUSU) Union Welcome Events
CUSU Coventry University London is here to represent your interests as students and provide you with co-curricular activities. We have a range of opportunities for you to meet current and new students alike during the enrolment period. All the information about our events and other areas of the students’ union, which you can get involved in, is available on our website.
You are required to complete an English Diagnostic exercise, which is compulsory to all new students. Following the exercise, some students may be provided extra English support as part of their first term timetable. This is a fantastic additional set of sessions, which can assist your English skills and abilities in your main course.
IT diagnosis and induction
In this session, you will be given an overview into the IT services and asked to complete an IT diagnosis exercise. The results of the test will lead to personalised extra support materials sent to your email, which are important for your course progression.
Collect your student ID card
You will then be able to collect your student ID card, which will give you access to the building and be used for monitoring your attendance – so it is important to keep it with you at all times.
