First Meeting with your Adviser of Studies:

Your Adviser of Studies is a member of staff in the College who will help you choose your courses, make sure that they are all compatible and give you any academic guidance you need. You will have an appointment with them either just before or during Orientation week. Please make sure you meet them, and if you miss the appointment please let the Chief Adviser of Studies know as soon as you can. arts-chief-adviser@glasgow.ac.uk

First Meetings of Courses:

You will be able to see when the first meetings for your courses are by looking at your timetable on MyCampus. Remember that many courses have their first meeting in Orientation Week.  It is essential you attend because crucial information about teaching, assessment, and any resources you need is given out at these meetings, and this is where you get to meet the staff who will be teaching you.

Induction is a crucial initial step to welcoming and introducing you to University life so that you can get your studies off to a good start. We clearly cannot tell you everything about how to be a successful student, but in these sessions, we aim to equip you with whatever is necessary for the first few weeks, and to let you know how and where to get questions answered. Staff and students from your subject area will be on hand to talk about their experiences and answer your immediate questions and concerns. We find that this is the best way to prepare for your new academic life.

As a Science student you will be taking three subjects in first year and you may not be sure which induction programme to attend on Tuesday 17 September if, for example, you are on a joint honours degree programme. It is important that all new students attend one induction session. Please attend the session which is most appropriate for you. Each session will be broadly similar in its structure and content.
