Your course induction

An introduction to your course and how you'll learn at Brookes.

During your Induction Week, most courses will have their own programme of events that you must attend. This is your opportunity to get to know other students on your course and meet your teaching staff. Most of these induction events will be on campus but there may be additional online events that you will need to attend or watch.

If you will be doing any of the following, please refer further down this page for more information on how induction will work for you.

  • studying part-time
  • taking some modules but not a full degree (associate student)
  • studying for a degree as a distance-learner
  • studying two subjects (Combined Honours)

Courses with early starts

Some courses start their inductions earlier than the main Induction Week. These include some Education, Healthcare and Foundation Art courses.

Induction information for students on alternative modes of study

Part-time students

Part-time degree students should follow their undergraduate or postgraduate induction schedule. The arrangements in place for on campus teaching will be reflected in your timetable and discussed during your course induction.

Associate students

An Associate student is a student who is studying one or two modules but is not registered for a university award (Certificate, Diploma or Degree). Associate students are welcome to join their course's induction activities.

Distance-learning students

If you are studying on an online/distance learning course, you should complete online enrolment but you are not expected to come to Brookes, unless your course contacts you. Your course will be in contact with all the details you need for your study programme.

Combined Honours students

If you are studying two subjects (Combined Honours), you will need to choose to follow the induction schedule for one of your subjects. However, you will need to attend the subject meetings for both subjects and these will be listed on the individual course schedules.

Events for all students

There are lots of events happening over Induction Week and Semester 1 - everyone is welcome to join and take part in these sessions.
