Belong at UCL

Belong at UCL is our welcome package for new starters. Choose from the different elements below to create your own personalised welcome package.

Belong at UCL is our chance to ensure that you receive a warm welcome into the university at the very start of your career here and to provide you with a thorough introduction to all the important stuff that you’re most likely to need to know in your first few weeks.

We've designed engaging e-learning materials that you can access at any point (once you have your UCL IT details), a monthly Q&A with senior members of staff, and a role-specific induction for researchers new to UCL - an additional online orientation package introducing them to research at UCL, together with an in-person live welcome.
