I am delighted to welcome you to the Psychology Department. We are 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. 

Everyone is always a bit nervous about starting university - this is a good sign and it means you’re keen to do well and make the most of this exciting opportunity. Please make sure you fully participate in online induction; it will really help you to 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!

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 Psychology 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 Psychology Department and academic community and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed.

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.

Before you start on campus, you will have online induction, which starts on Friday 16th August. Your online induction page is run by Psychology Student Mentors and Staff.

The online induction page has talks and activities about the key services at BCU. This is also the place you select your optional module for semester 2. The page gives you an opportunity to ask questions and chat with other students starting your course.

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 also to enable you to meet your peers and tutors. Your induction week begins at 10.00 am on Monday 16th of September and runs through until Friday 20th September. A timetable of events can be found below. In outline, we’d like to welcome you onto your course and into the Department of Sociology and Criminology. We will introduce you to your tutors.

We let you know how we help you in your studies and how you can make good use of the student-centred services provide by the University. Mid-week, there’s a chance to find out about the many clubs and societies run by students for students with the support of the Students’ Union. And throughout, we’d like to get you thinking as an undergraduate student. To do this we’ve planned a ‘find out about student support services at BCU’ and ‘get out and explore Birmingham/think sociologically about aspects of the city’ project for all to take part in. This is a group-based project with ample tutor support: and with encouragement for you and others in your team to present your ideas and thoughts. A prize is awarded for well-prepared and thoughtful presentations.

Together with our first year Criminology students, we finish the week with a Departmental quiz. Of course, we will endeavour to address any questions which arise for you during your first week at the University. We wish you every success in your studies with us.

What should I bring on my first day?

Notepad and pens.

Your induction week begins at 10.00 am on Monday 16th of September and runs through until Friday 20th September. A timetable of events can be found below. In general, 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.

Mid-week, there’s a chance to find out about the many clubs and societies run by students for students with the support of the Students’ Union. And throughout, we’d like to get you thinking as an undergraduate student. To do this we’ve planned a sociology and criminology-based activity for all to take part in. This is a group-based project with tutor support: and with encouragement for you and others in your team to present your ideas and thoughts about your chosen subject. Other sessions happening mid-week include: a session that allows you to explore Curzon and the surrounding built environment in virtual reality and gets you to think about designing out crime, as well as a session that tests your debating skills on contemporary sociological and criminological issues. Together with our first year Criminology students, we finish the week with a Departmental quiz. Of course, we will endeavour to address any questions which arise for you during your first week at the University. We wish you every success in your studies with us.
