Home Undergraduate: First few weeks
First few weeks checklist
1. Start your studies
Check your timetable and make sure you hit the ground running by attending all lectures, seminars and other sessions. View your timetable.
2. Meet your support staff
- Personal Tutor
Your Personal Tutor is there to help you with academic progress and personal and professional development. You should meet your Personal Tutor within your first few weeks at UCL and several times throughout your programme of study.
- Transition Mentor
If you're a first-year undergraduate student, you'll be assigned a Transition Mentor to help you adjust to university life. This is usually a second-year or final-year student from your department who's available to meet regularly to help you make the transition to university life.
3. Apply for a TV licence
In the UK if you use a TV, computer, tablet or phone to watch or record BBC programmes as they are being shown, or if you download or watch BBC programmes on iPlayer, then are you legally required to get a TV licence. Find out more about TV licensing.
