Your induction includes fun activities led by our current students and provides you with key information you will need to get the most out of your time studying with us.

Induction activities take place during the week before your classes start, SEWS will be in touch to invite you along to them. In the meantime, you can take our online induction course to find out more about us.


Enrolment is the process you need to complete in order to become an official Bloomsbury Institute student. All new students will receive an invite with a specific date and time of when their enrolment is taking place, so please keep an eye on your inbox.

It’s important to make sure everything below is aligned before the start of term so that when classes start, you’re ready to focus on studying. Remember, we’re always here if you need any help getting ready.

What is a lecture? How is it different to a seminar? How do modules work?

Higher education is full of unique terms and phrases that you may not be familiar with. The Transition to Higher Education course aims to explain some of the more common terminologies used in higher education and help you to find out what studying at Bloomsbury Institute will be like. You are encouraged to complete as much of the course as you feel helpful.
