The reception will take place in The Hub (on the top floor of the Students’ Union on Southfield Road). It will start with welcomes from the University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Graham Henderson and the Deputy Mayor of Middlesbrough, David Budd. The evening will also include:

The evening will be our welcome to them, of all nationalities and faiths. We’re also inviting all staff who have an interest in working with international students to come along, to meet the new and returning students and be part of the evening.'
