Southwark College staff were in place nice and early to assist and welcome our new students to their induction sessions.

 Free breakfasts for the early birds and a brand new student area has been introduced this year to allow students to play games, relax and socialise between their lessons, which is so important in the first few weeks.

Abida Umarji, Head of Student Services said: "The first day at College can seem so daunting, that's why we've made it much easier for students to settle in, and ensured that lots of friendly staff are available to reassure them and guide them to their sessions. We have also had a few students who need changes to their enrolments which we have been able to fix quickly."

We caught up with Ayesha Chowdhury, who was last year's student union president. Ayesha was studying Business at Lewisham College, and has now transferred over to Southwark's Access to Law course.
