In the feedback survey with non-traditional entry students which we conducted last semester, considerable support for a much more intensive orientation for International students emerged. Working with colleagues in the International Office we acted on that feedback with the January intake that has just arrived. As well as the usual Library presence at the International Fair last week:
- Avril Patterson gave a number of short talks during the Erasmus and the non EU student Orientation
- Details of Library services were also included in the Study Abroad Orientation programme
- A series of voluntary tours were offered by the Global Guides – 15 minute visits to the Library.
We hope to maintain and build on this with our future welcomes for international students
