BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science (Physiological Sciences) Stage 2 Direct Entry Student Induction 2019

Please refer back to this page during your Induction week in case of last minute changes.

It is a good idea to:

•   read before you arrive
•   follow any links and check instructions
•   bring with you any documents, etc where these are specified.

Some documents may need to be returned to the University before you arrive.

If you have not already done so, please upload a photograph of yourself using the e@applicant page: following the online instructions. 

This photo will appear on your University Card, which is issued to you during your induction. Without this photo, your University Card cannot be produced and will be delayed getting to you. You will need ID when you pick up your University Card and the only form of ID is your passport. Please see our University Card Collection web page for further information:

NB: this is not required if you already have a University Card because you were previously a student on another course or at a Partner College. Your University Card will remain valid for the duration of your studies at Plymouth University.
