Branding

Starting in 2017, the University use two distinct styles of branding to promote Welcome activity. The Welcome branding from recent years is used to promote key activity such as ID card collection and the Welcome Addresses in the Great Hall, but a new 'festival-style' branding has been introduced to promote some of the more fun aspects of Welcome, including live music, the Welcome Guide, and #hellobrum Day.

Plain English Guidelines

We have developed these guidelines to help staff write clearly and concisely. They are relevant for website content and other forms of communication. Plain English is particularly important for those who have difficulty reading English, such as international students.

ID Cards and Welcome information

Once successfully registered, students will be sent their ID card in a leaflet containing key information about Welcome.

The 2017/18 ID card leaflets are available to view for reference.

Copies of the 2019/20 ID card leaflets will be uploaded when they have been finalised. 

Student Diaries for new undergraduate students

New UG students will receive their Student Diary during their College/Department/School induction sessions during Welcome Week (Welcome packs are no longer sent out to new students). A briefing sheet will be made available to support Colleges in this activity.

The PDF of the Student Diary for 2017/18 is available for your reference.

A PDF copy of the 2019/20 Student Diary will be uploaded when it has been finalised.
