The International Mobility Team were delighted to welcome a new cohort of international exchange students to the University of Bath on Monday 25th September.
Despite the early start on a grey and dreary Monday morning, the 140 students in attendance for our induction were all in high spirits and keen to embark on their University of Bath journey.
The 140 exchange and visiting students were from 60 exchange partner universities and of 29 nationalities - of these the biggest nationality groups were German (27), French (26), and Spanish (22).
The induction commenced with members of the International Mobility Team introducing themselves, their roles and how they can be of assistance during the students stay with the University. As well as this students were informed of their schedule and priorities for the week before being given a wider overview of the University of Bath, extra-curricular activities, and getting around the United Kingdom.
The students also received presentations from the Academic Skills Centre on non-curricular courses which they can take, the Student Services Team on their role and how they support our students, and also the Students' Union who covered how to get involved at the University through societies, student groups, volunteering and fundraising. The induction concluded with a campus tour by student ambassadors.
Overall it was a really successful induction for our new cohort of international exchange students and we hope that they have a wonderful time during their stay at the University of Bath.
