Risk, Crisis and Resilience Management MSc: Induction week timetable

During induction week, you'll meet members of your course teaching and administration team, Faculty support staff and other new students. You'll be assigned a personal tutor in your first week, who is an experienced member of academic staff.

The Faculty Office is on the ground floor of Richmond Building (also known as MyPort Richmond), where staff can answer questions and support you as you find your way around the University. You can also contact them by email at myport-richmond@port.ac.uk

You should attend all timetabled induction activities and regularly check for messages from the University, which will be sent to the contact details provided on your application.

Keep in mind that event times and locations might change at short notice.
