Welcome to our new students
Information for London Campus students joining us in 2021.
Welcome to London. We are delighted to be able to invite you to our campus for Welcome Week.
This week will be very informative and provide you with useful information that will help you at the start of your student journey with us. It is also a great opportunity for you to meet staff and classmates and spend some time with them in a social environment.
To help you meet like minded fellow students we have divided Welcome Week by course, and you should only attend the day allocated to you. Please click on the links below to see the full schedule.
Monday 27 September 10:00am to 5:00pm: MBA Healthcare students
Tuesday 28 September 10:00am to 5:00pm: MSC Computer Science students
Wednesday 29 September 10:00am to 5:00pm: MBA students
If you are unable to attend due to being out of the country or quarantining recordings of the sessions will be made available.
The UK Covid restrictions have more or less been lifted and the country is slowly getting back to normal. There are, however, rules for people arriving into the UK and you need to make sure that you know what rules you need to follow:
If you are arriving from a Red List country, you will need to quarantine for 10 days in a government mandated hotel which will cost £2,285. You will also need to do 2 Covid tests.
If you are arriving from an Amber List country, you may still need to quarantine which you can do at home, depending on your vaccination status.
Please read the Government Guidelines for more information: Red, amber, green lists: check the rules for travel to England from abroad - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
If you are self-isolating and you require support, please email Tom at firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide financial support or housing during this quarantine period.

If your timetable is not appearing
On some occasions your timetable may not appear on the timetabling system/website. There’s a number of reasons this could be, such as:
- The most common reason for this is due to late enrolment
- Throughout Welcome Week the timetable is being edited
- You have not completed your online enrolment
- University record system has not transferred your information.
Teaching will be a mixture of online and face to face. Lectures will be delivered online and recorded so they are available for students who are outside the UK or who are quarantining. Seminars will take place face to face on campus. You need to be prepared to travel to campus at least 3 times per week.
It is important that you attend your lectures and seminars as attendance will be taken. Low attendance and engagement can lead academic sanctions.
