As we approach the start of the new term, we are busy ensuring that you have the best experience possible at SRUC. This page provides information to help you get orientated. It includes information about:

  • induction
  • the start of term
  • your Students’ Association
  • programme and systems for studying
  • covid


Induction consists of three main activities: Preparing to study at SRUC, Studying at SRUC and Welcome to SRUC. The first two of these take place on Moodle. For an introduction to Moodle, watch this video.

Preparing to study at SRUC

An online, interactive package is available to help new and returning students to continue developing the skills essential for successful study.

The package is available here - Training Moodle: Preparing to Study at SRUC. Please create an account to access the course. You can find help with that in our Training Moodle account guide.

It is also available on the main page - Moodle: Preparing to Study at SRUC. Once you have registered with SRUC and have your student email address, you will be able to access this course.

Studying at SRUC

An online, interactive Induction and Student Guide is now available with all the information new and returning students need to successfully start/restart their studies. 

The course has six sections, each including a 'key information' lesson and 'further information' resources. A final section provides a list of key contacts. There is a specific section for returning students, letting you know what has changed since last academic year.

We strongly encourage you to complete all the key information lessons for your induction – whether you are a new or returning student. While returning students might already be aware of some of the content, it will provide a good refresher.

The further information resources are there for you to refer back to as and when you need throughout the year.

Student Association

SRUCSA logoSRUCSA, our Student Association will be running a range of events and services for you during Welcome Week and beyond. The timetable of activities can be found in the Welcome Week Moodle course.

SRUCSA is the Students’ Association for everyone studying at SRUC. We work to ensure that you have the best possible student experience by engaging with you, representing you to SRUC, and promoting communication between staff and students.

By becoming a Student at SRUC you are automatically a member of SRUCSA. So, we hope to see you (online or in person) at events this year. You might like to become involved as a voluntary liberation officer, start your own sports club or society, or attend a student panel. You can find out more on the Induction and Student Guide module and get in touch through the SRUCSA website, social media or email
