A huge thank you to all Faculty staff who so very enthusiastically volunteered their time to assist at our Faculty Welcome on Wednesday 17th February. The welcome was a great success and the initial feedback from students indicates they had a really great time and feel a lot more confident about starting their life as ECM students! This would not have been possible without the support of our fantastic staff helpers!
