Would you like help transitioning to university life as a new student?

16 August 2023


Our new Transitions Enhancement and Enrichment Series (TEES) is designed to help support you in gaining an understanding of the university and campus prior to arriving at Teesside University.

The activities in TEES are not compulsory, but will provide a useful orientation tool for you to use at your leisure to familiarise yourself with our campus and some of the resources available to you when you arrive. The series includes a range of useful information that will be of benefit to you during your time at Teesside.

We understand that for many of you this will be the first time living away from home, or even coming to the UK, so the series is aimed at smoothing that transition as much as possible so you can settle in faster.

The series is scheduled over a three-week period. Two weeks of this are delivered online and you can complete them in a way that best suits you, which could be each day, as the sessions are delivered, or all at once if you prefer. The final week is part of the Welcome Week activities at each campus (Middlesbrough, Darlington and London), so look out for the TEES sessions when you are deciding what to do during Welcome Week. You can choose to participate in all, or some of the activities during this week.

Please work through the sessions for weeks one and two at your own pace and then we invite you to join us for in person sessions during Welcome Week, which we hope will be interactive and fun.

The series will be available on Blackboard, our Virtual Learning Environment, from the 4th September.

Details of face to face sessions during Welcome Week are posted on the Teesside Calling webpage.
