After a relaxing Sunday familiarising yourself with the area and getting to know your fellow students, Monday will consist of an induction day and welcoming you all to our fantastic university and city of Southampton.

Classes will start on the Tuesday and continue on the Wednesday with some free time in the morning. This will be followed by an assessment introduction and trip to Winchester the following day, where you will explore the ancient, vibrant and cultured city and visit the stunning Chawton House that once belonged to Jane Austen's brother, Edward.

Classes will continue Friday morning with some free time in the afternoon for students to explore at your leisure.
