University induction events

Welcome to the University of St Andrews!

To help new staff settle into their new role, the University induction for new staff is provided which all new staff are strongly encouraged to attend.  The induction is constantly developing and evolving to include changes, and your feedback is a valuable part of the development process.

The Staff essentials workshop and the University online induction resources have been developed to compliment the induction and provide information to help you prior to and after starting your role.
