Enrolment & Orientation

Enrolment & Orientation | Welcome to Westminster Business School archive & editing platform | Scoop.it

The enrolment session is the final stage of the admissions process and it’s crucial that you attend this, as well as the orientation sessions that are organised for you as it marks an important beginning to your Postgraduate Degree course.

 

Each course or department organises an orientation session for new students to help them settle in to their course and the University. Class timetables, key support services and University facilities are a few of the topics that will be covered at your orientation session.  During this stage, you’ll be issued with your student ID card. You’ll find out more about your course, timetable, and the important resources, services and facilities available to you. It’s also a good chance to find out who else is on your course and start making new friends.

 

Enrolment & Orientation timetables for postgraduate degree courses taught at Westminster Business School have now been published for the September 2018 academic in-takes.  Please access the timetable for your course here:

The charity was Age UK which was democratically selected by the entire MSc Project Management cohort. The scope and means to do were entirely up to us. The groups were allocated by the course leader based on academic performance. This is how we became the Go 4 Age UK Sutton team."
