Banking and Finance (Induction timetable) 2009-10

  1. 1. MSc in Banking and Finance 2009-10 Dear Student, We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Newcastle University Business School. Providing our students with the skills to develop and succeed in the international business world is fundamental to our mission. Drawing on our research expertise and knowledge of the changing business environment we have developed a range of postgraduate programmes to offer the diversity, innovation and quality associated with the worldwide reputation of Newcastle University. Now that you have chosen to study with us I would like to give you further information on the induction and registration process you will need to attend commencing Monday, 21st September. Masters Programmes, with the exception of Master Business Administration and MA International Business Management, will participate in a joint induction session on Monday, 21st September before breaking into programme specific groups later that day. A number of other activities have been arranged for you between Tuesday, 22 September and Friday, 25 nd th September and you should consult your individual programme induction schedule for these times and venues. The following information may also be of help: Online Registration: You will shortly receive a Welcome Pack in the post which contains essential information you will need before you arrive in Newcastle. This information is also available online at: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/pre-arrival/ May I draw your attention to the following document which contains details about how you register with the University for the start of your programme of study: http://www.ncl.ac.uk/pre- arrival/pack/documents/RegistrationInformationforNewStudents.pdf
  2. 2. (This information is also available in Section B – ‘Registration’ in the Welcome Booklet which you will receive in the Welcome Pack). Please note that most of the registration process can be completed online BEFORE you arrive in Newcastle, and we strongly recommend that you do this as soon as possible. Smart Card Collection Students should then make their way to the Kings Road Centre to collect their SMART card. Kings Road Centre will be open from Wednesday, 16th September until Friday, 25th September, during these dates there will also be an Information Service provided at the Kings Road Centre Language Centre Assessments These are for all students where English is not their first language and involve two 45 minute assessments. The assessments are compulsory but do not have a pass or fail outcome, they are used to assess if students require further assistance with English. Please report to the Language Centre at least 15 minutes before the assessments begin in order to be seated in time. Once the assessments are underway late arrivals will be refused access. Students must also take their registration form with them to the assessments. Please make your own individual appointment to take the assessments by going to the Herschel Building. Library Guided Tours Students are asked to report to the Library Induction Desk, Robinson Library, where they will be welcomed to the Library and given a guided tour of the facilities. Each course has been allocated a specific time slot to try to avoid unnecessary queuing; however anyone unable to make this can make their own individual arrangements. International Conference This is offered by the University to all our International students and provides useful information on support and assistance available. It is highly recommended that international students attend. A programme of events being held throughout the year is also available in the student information pack.
