Confetti students are just as much a part of NTU as all our other students, so we would encourage you to get involved in as many of the events listed on this website as possible. Welcome Week is a great opportunity to get to know Nottingham, the University and – most importantly – to meet new friends, so make sure you don’t miss out!
