The Welcome Team is made up of a diverse range of current students from all faculties and years who encourage all new and returning students to get involved. This amazing Team is responsible for setting up fairs, distributing essential information, offering campus tours and making the Campus as welcoming as possible. Volunteers will need to have basic knowledge of campus and be approachable, friendly and enthusiastic.
