Theme
Live Well
Study Well
Be Well

Welcome to Extended Induction - a  two-week programme of events and activities to help new students settle into life at the RVC.

The programme has been carefully put together to reflect the overall RVC Learning and Wellbeing themes of Live Well, Study Well and Be Well, and these are colour-coded in the timetables.

Each week also has its own individual theme - see the weekly timetables below.

Week 1 (21st to 25th January) - Reflect

The focus of this week is for students to take time to reflect upon their RVC journey so far.  There will also be opportunities to think about how this can practically impact the rest of the year.
