Welcome (back) > Goldsmiths Computing induction week 2017

walking back

The new academic year starts on Monday 25 September with a week of welcome activities before teaching starts on Monday 2 October 2017.

The week includes a six-hour creative hackathon, undergraduate and postgraduate social events, a careers workshop, and induction sessions for all new and returning students.

Freshers studying BMus/BSc Music Computing and BSc Computing & Chinese will also join activities organised by the Music Department and Confucius Institute respectively.

DoC.Hack, our welcome week hackathon is organised by student tech society Hacksmiths. For six hours, you’ll design and build tech projects – and meet students & staff from across the department in a relaxed, informal environment. No special skills needed – just bring a laptop. Limited tickets – registration essential

Update: We have now published students’ personalised timetables. These are still subject to some change until teaching starts on 2 October, so we urge you to check it regularly.
