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.
The Freshers' Fair is a one-day event to showcase all the student-run clubs and societies. It's a great opportunity to find out what you can do while you're a student, meet other students, and make new friends. The date of Freshers' Fair will be confirmed nearer the time.
