Transitions Workshops, with Professor Nick Barwick (Student Affairs)

Milton Court Rehearsal Room 2 (Level -2)

1.30 – 2.15

2.30 – 3.15

3.45 – 4.30

4.45 – 5.30

This presentation and discussion group will start to consider some of the psychological factors involved in moving from a familiar place (which for many new students, will be the family home, and a place of relative dependence) to an unfamiliar place: a new city, a new way of studying, perhaps more independence and the opportunities and challenges that can present. (And, because of Covid, to do so, in the strangest of times). For most people, this kind of transition is both exciting and anxiety-provoking.

This session will consider how to understand the challenges you might experience, in order to make the most of the creative possibilities – both within and beyond your course – that are ahead of you.

If you expressed a preference to attend this workshop at a specific time when booking, space has been reserved for you as requested.

If you expressed no preference, you can sign up for a session on arrival.

Milton Court is accessed via the Stage Door and Rehearsal Room 2 is located on Level -2. If you are not sure where to go, please meet a member of Student Affairs in Silk Street foyer 10 minutes before your workshop start time.
