Induction timetable

Induction week begins on Monday 20th September and will take place online. Your induction timetable will be sent out at least one week before, so please keep an eye on your emails for this.

This will include virtual introductions from our Academic, IT, Student Services, Facilities and Employability & Enrichment teams as well as a mix of sporting and social activities that you can take part in if you are local to our UK campuses, and exclusive guest speaker sessions to allow you to meet your classmates and start building your network in the global sports industry.

We are planning for our sports teams to return to training from September wherever sporting governing bodies allow this. Trials will also begin early in Semester 1. In addition to the sports teams, we will continue to support students who wish to compete and participate in other individual sports.

We are still awaiting confirmation that the BUCS leagues will return for the 2021/22 academic year so we will confirm once we are able to do so whether there will be competitive fixtures.

The UCFB Academies in London and Manchester will start as planned in September. We aim to provide training for both academies as well as friendlies and competitive fixtures throughout the year, subject to government and governing body guidelines. Trials for the academies will also take place in September.

We are following the government’s return to recreational team sport framework and the guidance from each sport’s governing body. More information can be found on the government website. Further details on each individual sport will be provided during your induction and orientation.
