    Depends what you are studying but generally for the first day, its just a brief intro.
    So pen and paper should suffice..

    I've noticed that most lecturers don't like people using laptops during the lectures, but in labs they're fine. You're free to use the laptop in place of the lab computers for all your work, but you'd have to source most of the required software yourself.

    You don't really need anything for your induction day. A pen and paper maybe but you'll be given loads of material. Timetable, information leaflets, student handbook etc.

    Good luck.
