Academic calendar

Over the summer (or autumn, if coming for the Spring semester only) months you will receive from the University's central administration the programme of events during the induction (orientation) week. You are reminded that all EU and ERASMUS+ Exchange students must attend the following events, when I will have the opportunity to meet you personally, sign your arrival certificates and/or learning agreements and outline the many very important details that are relevant for this group of students.


The detailed timetable for each module can be found by clicking here Enter the module code and make sure you select the weekly view and move the calendar forward to beginning of October or following February. As demands for resources and delivery are prepared over the summer months, the timetables will be populated with live data sometime in September, significantly later than normally due to COVID-19 implications. An attempt will be made, however, to have published here as early as possible at least the list of the modules likely to be delivered.

Induction/Orientation and enrolment days for January 2022- compulsory attendance

There are may be other events organised during the induction and welcoming week, some organised centrally by different units/departments of the University and other events organised for students attending the School of Business and Creative Industries (BCI). It must be noted that the School of BCI operates a different academic calendar from other Schools in the University. Students arriving for the Spring semester, are non-graduating students attending only the one trimester, picking modules across programmes and levels and supported exclusively by the ERASMUS+ program.

Full induction/orientation program to be published here in early September 2020

ITDS (Information Technology and Digital Services) at Induction Week

During Induction week, ITDS will be out on both the Paisley and Lanarkshire campuses ready to answer quick questions. Although they will be around for induction week, the department will also be providing drop in sessions for students and staff in the following weeks to share more about some of the exciting products that have been developed. Even though they will be answering questions that new students have, they will also be on campus to answer any questions from staff. Why not pop down and see them?
