Welcome message from Professor Gioia Pescetto, Dean of the Faculty of Business and Law

Welcome to the Faculty of Business and Law. We're pleased that you've chosen to be with us this year. We wish to ensure that you feel welcome and comfortable.

Your decision to study a course in Business, Economics or Law will provide incredible opportunities as you develop your knowledge and skills.

Engagement with your subject will open new frontiers of knowledge as you develop and work towards your goals and aims for the future. The experiences you have during your time here will be instrumental in shaping your life, both academically and socially.

Do seriously consider every opportunity open to you and take as many as you can. Your time with us will be a period of personal growth for you. You will make friends for life and take important decisions. Always remember that we are here for you.

I wish you the best with your studies. Be bold, be confident, and never settle for second best!

Staying safe on campus

We’ll have all appropriate safety measures and a few restrictions in place. And every building will be open in line with Government guidance – including teaching spaces, communal spaces, toilets, cafes and the library. For more information about how we're ensuring your safety on campus, head to the 'Campus and city life 2020/21' page.

Due to coronavirus, we've made some changes to teaching to keep you safe. You'll take part in most large teaching sessions online. And any face-to-face teaching will be in small groups with social distancing measures in place. We've set up sanitisation stations across campus, one-way systems in busy areas and protective screens at certain locations.

Due to changing circumstances as a result of the pandemic, we may need to make further changes to courses to ensure your safety and to ensure compliance with Government guidelines. We'll provide you with as much notice as possible of any such changes. Your course leader will inform you of these changes.

International and EU students 

If you're joining us from overseas, find out about our International Orientation events and what you need to do during your first week.

If you can't travel to the UK, or you don't feel safe to travel, your course's first teaching block will be delivered completely online. The majority of Orientation events will also be online, so you'll still be able to get involved in welcome talks and social activities, as well as meet other new students.

Meet your lecturers

We're looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to your first lecture. Below you'll find information of key lecturers who'll teach you during your first teaching block.
