We have intake dates in Michaelmas, Lent and Easter terms.  Most students start in Michaelmas term (October) and Lent term (January) and therefore we hold a Departmental Induction at the start each of these terms, as does the Clinical School.  Please attend your inductions as requested as lots of useful information is presented at these.  It can all be very confusing and daunting so please don’t think twice about contacting the Education Team with any questions you may have, however small or BIG they may be.
