Your first weeks
We have put together a range of orientation events that begin from week zero (before teaching starts in week one). For more information about the date, time and joining links/location for these events, please check the online induction on Aula, welcome section – a checklist has been prepared to guide you through the process of starting your academic year.
Aula is your online learning platform, where you can access all of your course materials and connect with your lecturers and classmates. Your Aula induction will show you how to get started. You can go through the induction at your own pace, and revisit it as many times as you like.
