Your Induction and Welcome

During Welcome Week and your induction to ARU College, you will receive all the essential course information you'll need for your studies, find out more about the campus you're studying on, and get the chance to start making friends and preparing for university life.

These sessions will give you the opportunity to meet fellow students, college staff and teachers, give you a taste of student life at ARU, and show you how to get involved with activities, societies, and access the different services available to you.
