Hi,

I'm coming to King's in September for undergraduate study... Can someone help me sort out the different dates when the term starts. I know there is International orientation week, etc. Can someone sort out the different events in the first few weeks so I, as well as others, know when to arrive (and which events we can skip).

Also, when I arrive, will I be staying at my accommodation place directly, or do I need to wait? When can we move in?


Thank you

Im also confused as to if registration is the same as freshers week and do we move into our accomodation on the 19th of sept or 12th of sept....

I assume it will be, every year has to improve on the previous one! :rolleyes:

Last year my dept had a week of into things and then their was the KCLSU freshers week, i guess it will be similar.

I had to book my accomm to start a week earlier tho, UoL halls dont include freshers week as standard :woo: So check your move in date, its worth paying for the extra week!

Orienteering is so bad it's good!
