» welcoming you

the week before term starts is typically known as freshers’ week and is a chance for you to learn about all aspects of university life through online and in person events. this will include academic introductions as well as the societies, sports and other social activities. don’t worry if you’re joining later you can still take part online and there will be lots of support for you when you do join us.
