Your welcome and registration activities will take place on the first Monday of your programme, with teaching starting on the Tuesday. These activities will be hosted through an online video conferencing service called Zoom.
Welcome activities will include virtual meetings with members of the College team who will be assisting you throughout your programme, so you can ask them any questions you might have. They will explain more about studying with us, with suggestions for studying effectively online. There will also be a session where we will go through the documents you will need to complete your registration.
From the first day, you will also be invited to take part in our online ‘Learning Outside The Classroom’ events during the week, which will give you the chance to meet students on other programmes and practise your language skills with them.
