As well as making a good start to your academic studies, there is plenty more to do as a Lancaster student during your first term. Here are just a few ideas
You may want a part-time job alongside your studies. You can register with Careers’ own Employment and Recruitment Service to help find employment on campus or in the local area that suits your hours and interests.
The Careers team invites a wide range of employers looking to recruit students and graduates on to campus to enable you to find out more. They run several Careers Fairs each year, starting with the Part Time Jobs Fair on 13th October 2016. Come to their employer presentations and employer-led skills workshop to get a headstart on building a brilliant graduate career.
The newly refurbished Lancaster University Library provides access to a huge range of online and print resources and study space for a variety of needs. The Library and Learning Zone are both centrally located on Alexandra Square and open 24/7 during term time.
The Library Welcome Guide provides all the information you need to start using the Library. Explore the Library website and subject guides to discover subject specific resources for your studies, information on referencing, and how to book study space and borrow books and laptops.
The Current Students page provides links to lots of useful resources and systems, including term dates, the Student Portal and information on how to provide your feedback.
