Is the welcome week compulsory?

Hello, I'm an international student and my visa is still not ready yet. Just worried that I might not make it for the welcome week (19th Sept-23rd Sept). Is the welcome week compulsory? :s-smilie:
I'm unsure if it is compulsory, but my healthcare degree has organised introductory sessions, orientations, presentations, etc. for that week

I'm sure if you have a good reason like a visa they'll understand if you can't make. However, it would be good to go for the sake of getting to know people early. Be that as it may, even if you miss you'll still make friends but it could maybe require a bit more effort as the same events won't be available. If they are any important sessions to go to I'm sure emailing the right people will get you to right information.

You'll likely miss an overview of the course, introductions to your tutor and course colleagues, IT, software, libraries and a few more things. It's not the end of the world but isnt ideal. Additionally its just a great week to make friends and find your feet in the area with socialising, local shops...

You should be able to make this up, contact them in advance and see if they can forward you some stuff for when you can get to the university
Hi there!

As a few other have usefully let you know it is not compulsory, although there is a number of academic related events (e.g. overview of your course / department etc.,). All of this content will be avialbile online on CANVAS (the online learning platform at UoL) so you will be able to catch up on this.

You could email your course leader just to let them know - and they might be able to forward you any essential infomation to keep you updated.

Have a safe journey to the UK.
