We have set ourselves a tough task for the Induction of our 2014/15 cohort, but it is hoped that the hard graft will pay off in an engaging, welcoming and, most importantly, fun first year induction. I know that I for one am looking forward to it. Let’s hope our incoming students are too. With an emphasis on social activities, embedded personal tutoring and mentored assistance from our existing students, I reckon that our new intake are in for a smooth transition into life in the School of Media at Birmingham City University.
One of the joys of the event was our spirited adoption by the students from Ulster (and special thanks here go to Kirstie and our animated induction into the duck-face selfie). Hearing the opinions of students both from our own course and of those from elsewhere, as ever, was truly instructive. And my own personal highlight, of course, the super-early morning swims in the beautiful pool.
