The University is gearing up for the start of the new semester
with Welcome Week 2012.
New students get a chance to learn about what
the University and Hull University Union (HUU) have to offer,
whilst existing students can find out about what’s new for this
year and meet up with old friends.
Welcome Week officially starts on 22
September, but many students have already arrived and are settling
in at both the Hull and Scarborough campuses.
Vice-Chancellor, Professor Calie Pistorius,
said: “I would like to extend a warm welcome to all our new and
returning students. The University is proud of its relationship
with its students and, along with HUU, is committed to providing an
outstanding student experience.
“I look forward to the start of the new
semester and seeing our campuses come alive with activity after the
New HUU President Magid Mah said: “I am
excited to welcome students old and new back to both the University
and the NUS Students Union of the Year 2012! There have been a lot
of changes over the summer to create new spaces for our members and
I can’t wait for them to start filling up with students.”
To help welcome those starting their studies
this year there will be a calendar of events and activities all
aimed to help students get their bearings, make new friends and get
to grips with university life.
But we are not forgetting those who are
already part of the University of Hull community. Whether you are a
second or third-year, a postgraduate student or you’re studying for
a foundation degree, you can also take part in our Welcome Week
