Your Guide to Welcome Week 2012

Welcome to the Department of Physics

Physics is the science of matter and its interactions and involves the

study of everything from quarks and leptons, the fundamental

constituents of matter, through the properties of solids, liquids and

gases, to the origins and evolution of the universe. You are about to

start on a physics degree programme that is the gateway both to an

understanding of all these natural phenomena and to a whole range

of careers including fundamental research, industrial research and

development, teaching and the worlds of computing, business and

finance. All of our programmes will allow you to study physics at the

boundaries of current knowledge. The lectures you will hear and the

projects you will do are informed by and based on current research

topics and ideas and all of the academic staff in the Department are

international researchers who can tell you about what is going on in

research right now.

In the Physics Department at Liverpool we are proud of our facilities

for experiments, projects and computing. All of the academic staff

have an open door policy and are happy to talk to you at any

time. Take the time to go and see your personal tutor early in the

semester to introduce yourself. If you have any problems make sure

you talk to us. You will find that a lot of your questions can be

answered by going to the Student Office, which is located on the

third floor of the Oliver Lodge Laboratory (Building No. 208, Grid Ref.

F4 on the campus map).

I hope you enjoy your physics programme in Liverpool and I look

forward to meeting as many of you as possible during the induction

events that are described on the following pages.

The University’s Welcome Week

Monday 17 th September – Sunday 23 rd September 2012

We hope that Welcome Week will give you the opportunity to feel

part of the University before your academic studies get underway.

A programme of events has been designed that will enable you to

become familiar with the University campus, to complete your

formal registration and to meet with academic staff and fellow

students in your chosen area of study.

The new University of Liverpool welcome webpage will provide

useful and the most up to date information on Welcome Week,

including all of the contents of your Welcome Pack in electronic

format. Please visit www.liverpool.ac.uk/welcome.

Events in the early part of the week are mostly organised by the

University and by the Liverpool Guild of Students [LGoS]. Events in

the later part are generally organised specifically by your new

School/Department.

The University is keen to extend a welcome to all of our students.

You may be living in the Halls of Residence or elsewhere. You may

be new to Liverpool or local to the city. You may be returning to

formal education after a break or joining us from another

institution. Whoever you are, we want to welcome you to your

University and to our exciting city.

Liverpool is a friendly, exciting and vibrant city that you will be

happy to make your home; and if you already live here, we’ll help

you to see the city in a totally different way. The time you spend

here will have a hugely significant effect on the rest of your life.

Make sure your first week in the University is filled with

anticipation and excitement, with fun and with new friends.

If you have a support need or require information in an alternative

format, please contact Student Support Services in the Student

Services Centre who will liaise with the appropriate contact in your

department. You should find relevant contact details for your

department under ‘Further Information’ in this document.

Liverpool Guild of Students (LGOS)

Listen – Lobby ‐ Lead

The students’ union, called the Liverpool Guild of Students (LGoS),

supports students throughout the course of their studies. We offer

advice, a range of extra‐curricular activities, and are at the very

heart of the social life on campus. As a charity, we have a clear

mission to improve the quality of life for all Liverpool students.

We LISTEN to students – Our ultimate aim is to ensure that we can

get more of what you like, and improve the things that you don’t

like. We do this by talking to students and understanding your

individual experiences.

We LOBBY for students ‐ We take your ideas to improve your time

in Liverpool. We do this by talking to the University and the City

Council on your behalf, working with a range of individuals from the

Vice Chancellor to the Chief Operating Officer.

We offer opportunities to LEAD – The Guild elects a President,

Deputy and two Vice‐Presidents each year to lead the work that we

do. We also elect a student council, have reps in all departments

and halls committees, and have forums open to all students. To put

it simply, there are loads of different opportunities for students to

take the lead.

We help you settle in – The Guild helps you to solve any problems

you might have, by offering support at the start, as well as

throughout your time at university. We can give you advice and

direction on anything to do with academic issues, accommodation

or just generally settling in to university life.

We bring students together – Unless you win the lottery, you’ll

never get another chance to do so many different and exciting

things. There’s pretty much everything you can imagine, as well as

some things you wouldn’t even think of! The Guild does this

through supporting student societies and volunteering, and by

putting on gigs and events – particularly during Welcome Week.

The Guild building is also the central meeting point on campus,

where students share their activities, develop their interests and

skills, and ultimately have a lot of fun.

Assessment

The assessment for each module taught by the Department of

Physics will vary slightly according to its needs. Generally, you will

complete a piece of coursework, either individually or as part of a

group, and sit an examination at the end of the semester. You

might also be asked to give a presentation, complete a mid‐term

test or keep a diary of your learning. Full details of the assessment

requirements of your module will be provided by your module

leader at the start of the semester. You can also read about the

requirements of each module in the electronic module catalogue

at:

http://www.liv.ac.uk/physics/admissions/undergraduate/

Students must not make any holiday, work or travel arrangements,

which would prevent them from taking examinations on the

stipulated day during assessment periods as failure to attend will

result in candidates not being allowed to progress to the next year

of study. The examination periods for the 2012‐13 academic year

provisionally are:

Semester one: Monday 14 th January – Friday 25 th January

Semester two: Monday 20 th May – Friday 31 st May

If you fail a module, you may be required to re‐sit it before you can

progress to the second year of your studies. The details of the

re‐sit period will be confirmed during the academic year, but it

usually runs from late August – early September. You must be

available to re‐sit examinations during this period.

Coursework deadlines will vary for each module. Full details of the

required submission dates will be provided by the module leader at

the start of each semester.

Your Guide to Welcome Week 2012

How do I pay my fees?

You should have received a publication called 'Your Registration',

which includes full details. Alternatively, you can find information

about how to pay your fees within the Student Administration and

Support section of the University

website (http://www.liv.ac.uk/feespayment/tuition/index.htm).

I am dyslexic and I did not declare it on my UCAS form. Will I

receive any support?

You need to take an active role in making arrangements for your

support. First, you should make an appointment to meet a member

of the Disability Support Team (DST).

The team are based in the Student Services Centre, full information

can be found at:

http://www.liv.ac.uk/studentsupport/disability.

How do I get to the University from Carnatic/Greenbank Halls of

Residence?

Carnatic and Greenbank Halls are approximately 3.5 miles from the

University Campus. The 699 bus service, operated by Arriva buses,

connects Carnatic and Greenbank to the University Campus. The bus

journey takes around 15 to 20 minutes. There is a charge to use this

service (see below). Alternatively there is a cycle route between

Carnatic and Greenbank Halls and the University Campus. This takes

around 20 to 30 minutes to cycle.

How much does the bus cost?

A single student fare on the 699 is currently £2 per journey. Rather

than pay each time you get on the bus it is better value to buy a bus

pass. Student passes are available from Arriva and can be bought to

cover different periods of time, from just one term to the full

academic year. Last year (2011/2012) a full academic year pass cost

approximately £290.

Bus passes can be bought from the Arriva website and from the shop

at the Guild of Students, and during Welcome Week can also be

purchased at Carnatic and Greenbank Halls.

Where are the Computer Facilities?

Mostly in the libraries but here is the link to CSD web pages

containing info:

http://www.liv.ac.uk/csd/pccentres/facilities.htm.

Where are the Banks located?

There are five banks on campus. They are on Oxford Street, next to

the Guild and around the corner from Blackwells.

I am an international student and I am required to register with the

Police, what do I do?

Information can be found on the IST webpages:

http://www.liv.ac.uk/studentsupport/ist/policeregistration.htm.

The address of the Police Station is:

Merseyside Police Nationality Department, Merseyside Police

Headquarters, Canning Place, Liverpool, L1 8XJ

To view the Police Station on a map please click on this link

http://bit.ly/96Wl3u. You can use this link to find directions to the

Police station from your home.

How far is the city centre from the main University campus?

Approx 0.9 miles.

Where do I go if I need help from the Police or Security Team?

The Security section operates to ensure a safe and secure crime‐free

environment within the University community, through the provision

of a proactive and vigilant security team. Responsibilities include

CCTV and alarm surveillance, visible patrolling, investigative

processes and the provision of security advice throughout the

University.
