We organise a series of induction events at the start of the academic year to help students familiarise themselves with Electronics and Computer Science at Southampton and settle in.
Induction starts on Monday 24 September and the main day for undergraduate registration is Tuesday 25 September.
When you arrive in Southampton at the beginning of your degree programme, our JumpStart induction will ensure that you settle in quickly to the University and the teaching programme. You will get to chance to meet members of your tutor group and we will ensure that you can find your way round Southampton.
The Jumpstart programme features a range of events including:
- presentations by key member of staff to introduce you to Electronics and Computer Science at Southampton
- scheduled times to deal with administrative tasks, including enrolment
- fun events to help you to get to know your fellow students
- an Electronics and Computer Science Society (ECSS) welcome event

Meeting staff and students
Induction events include a social side, making them an excellent opportunity to meet staff and fellow students.
There will also be plenty of University wide activities, such as welcome events organised by your halls of residence.
Other campus amenities
Specialist staff will introduce you to the library and IT services, and you can choose to have induction to the gym and other sports facilities.
The Southampton University Students' Union (SUSU) hosts Freshers’ Week at the start of each academic year. This is a chance to find out about the University's various clubs and societies, and well as to enjoy a range of entertainment.
