Personal Induction Planner

To help you keep track of where you need to be, and what you need to do, during your first busy days at university, whether within your College or Department, we have created a day-by-day University Induction Planner. This should help you to plan your schedule, so you don't miss anything from being issued with your Campus Card or meeting the staff in your department, to trying out for a sports team or joining a student society.
