Find out what you need to bring

Make sure you have all your paperwork. Don't pack too much, it's often easier to buy things once you get here.


Check your course induction events

For each course you'll need to attend some welcome meetings, then take the appropriate forms to Matriculation (registration). Each course is slightly different, so check the appropriate page for your course. We've also arranged a wide range of Welcome events to help you get settled in.


Don't buy Microsoft Office (you get it for free!)

You get access to Microsoft Office 365, including desktop, mobile, and tablet installation for free as part of your University account. You can also save money on laptops and software by using our partners.
