Their role is to offer academic and pastoral advice throughout your time at university, so you will want to get to know them quickly. To facilitate this, your personal tutor will be heavily involved in the Welcome Week activities. In addition, we have a fantastic team of Accounting Student Mentors who will be able to guide you during Welcome Week and offer advice.

Welcome message

Hello!

I am delighted to welcome you to the BA (Hons) Criminology course at Birmingham City University. We are really looking forward to welcoming you and helping you to settle into the department, your course, and your new environment.

Induction is a really important part of your first steps at university. We want you to feel part of our community, get to know the course team and make friends with others on your course. Please make sure that you get involved with all the activities that will take place during Welcome Week and in the following weeks and months on your course.

As soon as you enrol you will be able to access our virtual learning environment, Moodle. Please do log onto this and familiarise yourself with the online content that is there to help you get off to a flying start on your course. We’re all very friendly and you’ll soon settle in. Remember, everyone is in the same boat and there are lots of people available to support you!

Your Personal Tutor is a key person to get to know in the first few weeks, as they can help with any queries, worries, or concerns. Their role is to offer academic and pastoral guidance throughout your time at university, so you will want to get to know them quickly. In addition, we have a fantastic team of Student Mentors, who will be able to guide you during induction and offer advice on how to make the most of student life.

In the meantime, why not get to know your classmates by joining 'Official BCU Criminology' on Facebook - a group to bring together new and current undergraduate and postgraduate students studying Criminology (and associated courses) at Birmingham City University.

Finally, I’d like to wish you the best of luck for the start of your course. You are now a part of the Department of Criminology and Sociology, and we look forward to working with you to help you succeed in this exciting next chapter of your life.

Welcome message

Hello all!

I am delighted to welcome you to the BSc Professional Policing course. We are really looking forward to welcoming you to Birmingham City University and helping you to settle into the department, your course, and your new environment. Your course is located in the Faculty of Business, Law and Social Sciences (BLSS).

Induction is an important part of your first steps at University. We want you to feel part of our community, get to know the course team and make friends with others on your course. Please make sure that you get involved with all the activities that will take place during Welcome Week and in the following weeks and months on your course. Some of you may be interested in applying to become a Special Constable (voluntary police officer) alongside your studies – if this is something that you intend to do or would like to know more about then please follow the link below for our local force area. I must stress this is in no way mandatory, but may be of interest to some of you.

What is a Special Constable? - WMP Jobs

As soon as you enrol you will be able to access our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), Moodle. Please do log onto this and take part in the activities that are there to help you get off to a flying start on your course and get to know your course colleagues before you arrive on campus. We’re all very friendly and you’ll soon settle in very quickly. Remember, everyone is in the same boat and there are lots of people available to support you!

BCU also have a Centre for Academic Success which is based on campus but offers a range of online services that you might want to check out if you’re thinking you need brushing up on some of your skills. If you have a disability or mental health condition, make sure you register with Enablement and Wellbeing team who can support you.

Your Personal Tutor is a key person to get to know in the first few weeks, as they can help with any queries, worries or concerns. Their role is to offer academic advice and guidance throughout your time at university, so you will want to get to know them quickly. In addition, we have a fantastic team of Student Mentors, who will be able to guide you during induction and offer advice on the wider university experience.

Finally, I’d like to wish you the best of luck for the start of your course. You are now a part of the Sociology and Criminology Department and wider policing academic community, and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed. In the meantime, why not start following our social media: @BCUPolicing, keep up to date with West Midlands Police Special Constables: @SpecialsWMP or explore volunteering opportunities @BcuVolunteering. We look forward to welcoming you on campus in September – in the meantime feel free to reach out to me or another member of the team if we can be of help.

Best wishes,

Steve

Welcome message

We hope you are excited to join us for induction week! We have lots of fun and engaging activities planned to help you find your way around the school and campus and to enable you to meet your peers and tutors. We’d like to welcome you onto your course and into the Department of Sociology and Criminology. You will be introduced to your tutors and we will let you know how we are going to assist you in your studies. We will also let you know how you can make good use of the student-centred services provided by the University.

Throughout the week, we would like to get you thinking as an undergraduate student. On Monday, you will be introduced to your course and what it means to be a sociology student at Birmingham City University. On Tuesday you will be introduced to the library service with a dedicated session provided by our subject librarian on how to use the library catalogue and search journal databases, crucial skills needed to ensure successfully completion of your university studies. Wednesday you will have time to get adjusted to university life and check out the Student Union's Welcome Week Fair. On Thursday, the course team will get you thinking like sociologists! This will involve a sociology themed quiz in the morning where we get you out and about in the city of Birmingham looking for historical and sociological sights of interest. In the afternoon, you will be invited to a film showing of Exit Through the Gift Shop. The film will be followed by a group discussion of its sociological themes. Both of these activities have been designed to get to know your course tutors and other students in an informal environment. Lastly, on Friday, you will have another opportunity to explore the university and settle into life on campus. There will also be 'talking head' videos available on the course Moodle page introducing you to key university services such as Careers+, Centre for Academic Success and the Students Union.

We hope you find this week filled with lots of activities to do and fun memories to create as you embark on your university degree. We look forward to welcome you very soon!

Welcome to the BA (Hons) Sociology and Criminology with Foundation Year

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the foundation year of the BA (Hons) Sociology and Criminology programme at Birmingham City University and what I hope will be the beginning of a successful academic learning journey within the School of Social Sciences.  You are the fourth cohort of students to have the exciting opportunity to study this subject at a foundation level. This year has been designed to provide you with an introduction to the academic disciplines of Sociology and Criminology.  In addition to this, you will have the opportunity, throughout the course of the year, to develop skills and abilities which are fundamental to successful undergraduate and post-graduate study as well as employment.

I encourage you to make the most of the forthcoming year and you will be expected to actively participate in all of the modules that you will study. This includes participation not only in scheduled learning and teaching activities but also in assessments.  We have chosen a broad range of assessments throughout the foundation year.  These have specifically been selected to help you prepare for the range of assessments that feature on the undergraduate social science courses which will become available to you upon successful completion of your foundation year.  

In each module, there will be formative opportunities for you to test your performance prior to attempting your summative assessments.  To support you in your successful completion of assessments throughout this foundation year, we encourage you to make the most of the feedback you will receive from your academic tutors and peers throughout each module.

As Course Leader, it is my role to ensure that you feel supported by our academic staff, and I will be available throughout the year to provide you with any additional information or advice that you may need. 

I look forward to personally meeting each one of you over the next academic year.  Best of luck with your studies!

Your course is located in the Faculty of Business, Law and Social Sciences.

Induction is a really important part of your first steps at university. We want you to feel part of our community, get to know the course team and make friends with others on your course. Please make sure that you get involved with all the activities that will take place during Welcome Week and in the following weeks and months on your course.

As soon as you enrol you will be able to access our virtual learning environment, Moodle.

Your Personal Tutor is a key person to get to know in the first few weeks, as they can help with any queries, worries, or concerns. Their role is to offer academic and pastoral guidance throughout your time at university, so you will want to get to know them quickly.
