Kicking of a new trimester: 2115
The beginning of a new trimester is always an exciting time at FCM. The September intake has started their first week of study last week. We would like to welcome all of our new students to FCM and we wish you both a happy and successful time here. We understand that the first few days you are likely to feel daunting and it is quite normal to feel apprehensive about your new start. However, FCM has a very friendly and informal atmosphere which we hope will make students feel comfortable, confident and positive about making new friends, meeting their lecturers and starting their course.
