Welcome Pre-sessional

Welcome and induction

We look forward to welcoming you to the University and have arranged an induction which will give you all the essential information about your pre-sessional course and being a student at Southampton. This will help you to settle in and get ready for your studies.

You will be given your induction schedule and allocated to your induction group on arrival at your Halls of Residence.
If you are staying in private rented accommodation, your schedule will be emailed to you a few days before induction.

Your induction

During induction you will be given all the information you need to start your programme on the Monday and have the chance to get to know the other students.

If you have any questions, please contact the Pre-sessional Team via email:

Your Students' Union

The University of Southampton Students' Union is run by students for students. It is there to ensure your university experience is the best it can be, and to represent your voice on issues locally, nationally and internationally.

The Students' Union will organise presessional activities such as a welcome party, farewell party, film screenings, sports activities and social events such as karaoke, games and quiz nights. There are also opportunities to go on trips to other cities and landmarks in the UK.

The Students' Union also provides student helpers who are there to help you settle into life in the UK and at the University.
