Welcome message

I am delighted to welcome you to the BSc (Hons) Psychology and Counselling course. We are really looking forward to welcoming you 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. 

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 take part in the activities as soon as possible. They are designed to help you step up to University level study and to get to know your course colleagues before starting  your modules.

You will also be able to select your optional modules for semester 2 before the start of semester 1. Places on modules are limited, so it is important to make your selection as soon as possible. We have developed a new professional progression pathway option for you, and hope to have this fully validated before the start of the semester. We will tell you all about this very soon, but for now it is important to know that this will have an impact on your module choices, so pay careful attention to this.

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 suport 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.

You are now a part of the Psychology Department and academic community and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed.  In the meantime why not start following our Twitter, @BCU_Psychology, and your mentors twitter is: @BCUPsychMentors

I’d like to wish you all the best for the start of your course.  We look forward to meeting you, and welcome to BCU Psychology.

Birmingham City University is a very friendly place and you will soon settle in quickly. Remember, everyone is in the same situation 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 advice and guidance throughout your time at university, so you will want to get to know them quickly.

What should I bring on my first day?

During the first week, you will be attending lectures, workshops and completing a Psychology Induction week task. To make notes, make sure you have a notepad, pen, pencil, etc. You can bring a laptop, but remember you will be carrying it all day. The university has computers and loan laptops for you to use when you are enrolled.  During induction week you will be making a poster, so if you have craft materials, it would be good to have them accessible during induction week; you will not need them on the first day.

Pre-arrival activity

To get the most out of your first weeks at university, make sure you read all the materials provided ahead of induction week though Moodle and complete any activities asked of you.

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 the course tutors. On Tuesday you will be introduced to some of the services available to you while studying at Birmingham City University. In the morning, there will be talks by the Students Union and the university employability service, Graduate+, while in the afternoon you will be introduced to the university’s library and the Centre for Academic Success, who will provide you with information about how to use the library catalogue and academic databases: skills needed to make sure you are successful during your time studying at BCU.

Thursday, the course team will get you thinking like sociologists! This will involve a city tour in the morning, denoting historical and sociological sights of interest, and a sociology themed quiz in the afternoon. 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 be given a chance to meet your personal tutors and be provided a guided tour of the Curzon building by a current sociology student.

We hope you find this week filled with lots of activities to do and fun memories to created 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!

What should I bring on my first day?
