Welcome to Portsmouth and the first year of your degree. While it's been a strange couple of years, and your journey here might not have gone the way you expected, we hope you're excited to start your new life at university.

Now that things are opening up, we hope you'll take every opportunity to thrive in your studies, career, hobbies and social life. Over the next few years, you'll delve into your chosen subject, make friends for life, and develop skills to prepare you for a successful career after your studies. 

We wish you every success in everything you do here at Portsmouth.
