Information for New Students

New Students are required to attend induction meetings in order to furnish them with the information necessary to enable them to commence work. They will be given a copy of, and briefed on, all relevant policies and procedures as well as departmental, faculty or UCL procedures relevant to them.

1) As part of the induction process, new students must meet with Mandy Verdon or Ajay Patel to obtain an Induction pack and their list of relevant appointments.

On their first day, they will be given dates for their Induction meetings, which will include:

  • Safety Induction
  • Building Tour
  • Half Day Induction

2) Additionally, new students will meet separately with the graduate tutor and should e-mail Julie Olszewski to arrange at time for this.

3) The UCL Graduate School has induction meetings for new students in early October and again in early January each year. New students are required to attend one of these sessions which is closest to when they start.

It is essential that all of these meetings are attended.
