Orientation and Enrolment

As well as organising the safe arrival (and departure) of the students to the BISC, Student Services organises and runs the Orientation programme. The programme includes tours of the residence and the Castle, introductions to key staff and services, seminars and workshops, information sessions, and a tour of the local area.

Student Services also organises social and team building activities in order to help you feel comfortable with your peers and the BISC community. Programmes are designed to prepare new students for the educational opportunities and the integration in the intellectual, cultural and social aspects of the community. Consequently we expect students to attend all orientation activities. You do not need to register for Orientation.

Additionally, students will have community meetings with a smaller subset of the student population who live in the same or nearby corridors. Each corridor community is supported by a full time student services staff member called a Student Life Coordinator (SLC) with frequent meetings, discussions, and activities facilitated by the SLC.

You can view a sample Orientation Schedule for reference.
