Congratulations on becoming one of our 2021 Combined Social Sciences freshers and welcome to the department! We’re looking forward to meeting you in person during Welcome and Orientation Week, and will be posting some video content about the programme for you to watch during September before we meet. We’ll also organise some online coffee mornings in September where you can drop in and have a chat with other new students and ask us any questions you might have.
When you arrive in Durham, we have a live session on the first day of Welcome and Orientation week where you’ll meet me and meet your Combined Social Sciences peer mentor as well as some other students studying similar combinations of subjects to you.
Our Welcome and Orientation Week session is Monday 27 September, 14.30 - 15.30 in the Teaching and Learning Centre, Room 106 (TLC106). This is when you'll meet the CHSS Director and Administrator as well as your Peer Mentor and fellow CHSS students. From Wednesday 11 August we'll email you with further details about the welcome session, module selection and the CHSS induction site which contains information and guidance to help you before you join us.
The Timetable has been designed so College events don’t clash with any of your academic departmental events, but offer you lots of opportunities to meet your fellow Freshers, find your way around and settle into student life.
We're working hard to welcome you safely and delivering quality education and student experience. Visit our Covid Safety Information webpages for applicants for the latest advice. We can't wait to see you soon!
