Event times & Locations 
Please check your event schedule, as event times and location may have changed. If you can no longer attend an event, make sure to check your schedule and de-register, so other people can attend the event.

Event Requirements
IDs will be scanned for credited events.

If you are attending WEP for credit purposes, make sure you have registered for all 11 keynote lectures and the Student Breakfast Orientation on January 13, AND an additional 30 credits worth of events. Remember that your 30 credits must be completed at a single WEP program and cannot be completed across more than one program/year. If you have any issues making sure you have enough credited events make sure you pass by the WEP offices at Building 16, Level 3, Rooms 3810 and the WEP team will assist you. 

Make sure you arrive 20 minutes before all keynotes lectures and all other lectures and workshops. This is to make sure your registration is recorded for credit purposes and your ID is scaned. 

Please note that we will not record registrations for events after the event starts. If you are attending consecutive events make sure you leave in time to make registration for the next event.

During WEP 13 - 24 January 2019
