Everything you need to know for arrivals day!

Arrivals weekend takes place on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 September. There's lots of information you need to know, so please get informed.


Enrolment is the process of registering for your studies in the new academic year and a chance for you to keep us informed of important information such as your contact details and emergency contacts. There are four steps to enrolment for new students and two for returners.

Make sure you tick off our checklist before you arrive!
