Welcome message

I am delighted to welcome you to the BSc Accountancy 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. 

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.   It’s probably the case that Covid-19 is making you ask lots of questions, especially if you haven’t been in school or college since March!  I want to reassure you that here at Birmingham City University we prioritise your health, safety and wellbeing and that we have made a pledge to all our students that across the year, most of your course will be taught face to face but with the benefit of online interactive activities and materials which will support your learning. 

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 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!

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 Accounting 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 Accountancy, Finance and Economics Department and academic community and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed.

Welcome message

It is with great pleasure that I welcome each one of you to the next exciting phase of your life. Our focus, as a school and as a department, is to inspire you as independent learners, leaders and/or professionals, to support you in reaching your full potential and to celebrate your success as individuals and not just as learners. So welcome to the BCU family and your BA (Hons) Business Economics course which is a part of the Business, Law and Social Sciences Faculty.

The elephant in the room is probably how we will be tackling the commencement of the year in light of Covid-19. I want to reassure you that here at Birmingham City University your health, safety and wellbeing is our TOP priority. While we have made a pledge to all our students that across the year, that most of your course will be taught face to face, please know that it will be with the appropriate health and safety measures in place. You will also have the benefit of online interactive activities and materials which will support your learning. 

The BA (Hons) Business Economics course will encourage, challenge and broaden your understanding of economic and business frameworks within which organizations operate as well as focus on various national and global economic conditions that affect the way that different kinds of businesses make decisions. We are particularly proud to be among the few courses that offer a plurality of approaches in economics beyond the mainstream schools of thought. We are also proud that BA (Hons) Business Economics is an applied course with focus on real life business and economic situations.

Please take advantage of the induction week to get to know your support eco-system for the next 3 years – your department, your academic and administration team, your peers and the various BCU student-support centres. Please make sure that you get involved with all the activities that will take place during Welcome Week.

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 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. I promise we’re all very friendly and are here to support you. Remember, everyone is in the same boat!

Of all the people/teams that are here to support you, your Personal Tutor is a key person. Your personal tutor is a member of the staff whose role is to advice and support throughout your time at university; they will be reaching out to you so please get to know them quickly. In addition, we have a fantastic team of Student Mentors, who are current second/final year BCU students on your course and so they will be able to guide you during induction and offer advice on the wider university experience.

Once again, I am extremely happy to welcome you to Birmingham City University and look forward to meeting each one of you. I wish you the very best!

What should I bring on my first day?

I suggest you bring a bag, pen and some paper. We won’t be doing much writing, but you might want to make some notes. We will let you know about other books/equipment as seminars and lectures start

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.   It’s probably the case that Covid-19 is making you ask lots of questions, especially if you haven’t been in school or college since March!  I want to reassure you that here at Birmingham City University we prioritise your health, safety and wellbeing and that we have made a pledge to all our students that across the year, most of your course will be taught face to face but with the benefit of online interactive activities and materials which will support your learning. 

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 to familiarise you with the learning environment 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!

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 Support Advisers and 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 Strategy, Management and Marketing Department and academic community and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed.

Welcome message

Welcome to BCU and start your new journey of BA International Finance with us. 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. 

It’s probably the case that Covid-19 is making you ask lots of questions, especially if you haven’t been in school or college since March!  I want to reassure you that here at Birmingham City University we prioritise your health, safety and wellbeing and that we have made a pledge to all our students that across the year.  Some of your course will be taught face to face under the health and safety’s priority, and online interactive activities and materials which will support your learning. 

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 (https://moodle.bcu.ac.uk/).  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!

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 Finance 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 Accounting, Finance and Economics 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?

Nothing but a pen and a notebook or a piece of paper may be helpful.

Welcome message

I am delighted to welcome you to the LLB (Hons) Law with a Foundation Year 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. 

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.   It’s probably the case that Covid-19 is making you ask lots of questions, especially if you haven’t been in school or college since March!  I want to reassure you that here at Birmingham City University we prioritise your health, safety and wellbeing and that we have made a pledge to all our students that across the year, most of your course will be taught face to face but with the benefit of online interactive activities and materials which will support your learning. 

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 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!

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 Connect 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 Law School and its academic community and we look forward to working in partnership with you to help you succeed.

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.

Welcome message

I am delighted to welcome you to the BSc Psychology with Sociology 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 (BLSS). 

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.   It’s probably the case that Covid-19 is making you ask lots of questions, especially if you haven’t been in school or college since March!  I want to reassure you that here at Birmingham City University we prioritise your health, safety and wellbeing and that we have made a pledge to all our students that across the year, most of your course will be taught face to face but with the benefit of online interactive activities and materials which will support your learning. 

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.  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. Please make sure that you get involved with all the activities that will take place during induction online and in the following weeks and months on campus. 

As soon as you enrol you will be able to access our online induction course, via Moodle.  Please do log onto this and take part in the activities as soon as possible they are deigned to help you step up University level study. During induction you will complete an activity designed help you get to know your course colleagues before you start your modules. On the induction page you will have the opportunity select your optional module semester 2. Places on the modules are limited so log on and pick your module as soon as possible.

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. 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!

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 online as soon as you enrol and again, welcome you to BCU Psychology.

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. 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.

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. 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.
