Your department is looking forward to welcoming you!
Studying for a degree may be very different to what you have been used to. We've put together a list of common questions you may have as you make the transition to university.
Look out for any induction or welcome events run by your department to help you meet staff and students on your programme.
There are precise rules for how you should study and present your work. To help you understand these, you should complete the Academic Integrity Tutorial on the Yorkshare VLE early in your first term.
See the study skills hub for all the support available to further develop your academic skills when you're here.
Take a look at our Skills Guides for videos, interactive tutorials and workbooks to develop your digital and information searching skills.
See information below about pre-arrival study and department 'Preparing to study' sites.
You will get an early version of your timetable in August with mandatory items included. As you get closer to arrival, we will add in college and other induction events. If you've been asked to choose modules, these will be added to your timetable in early September.
Your department will arrange for you to meet your supervisor early in your first term. Read our advice on how to get the most from your supervisory sessions.
The University Library is a key resource. Your University card gives you 24/7 access to the Library and associated study spaces almost every day of the year. Check out their Information for new students to get started and have a look at the Skills guides for videos, interactive tutorials and links to specific help in developing your digital and information searching skills.
Many departments provide pre-arrival information to prepare you for starting your degree. It's important that you do preparatory work so that you can make the best possible start to your studies.
If your department has one, your 'Preparing to study' site or pre-arrival study information will be available before the start of term and the link listed on this page.
If your department's information is located in the Yorkshare VLE or in a password protected section of the University website then you will need to have upgraded your IT account and enrolled before you can access it. See Things to do first for details on how to do this.
