Coming to university can be a nerve-wracking experience for even the most confident people. To help new students settle in and make friends the University organises a 'Freshers' Week' (also known as 'Welcome Week') at the start of the Autumn term.
Only first-year students are on campus during Freshers' Week, with all other students arriving a week later.
Freshers' Week gives new students the chance to settle into their accommodation, join clubs and societies, get to know the University and city and - of course - meet other students and make new friends.
