Welcome Week is a varied, vibrant programme of events designed to welcome you to Nottingham Trent University. We have over 500 activities for you to get involved with – by trying something a bit different, our goal is to help you make new friends, and get to know your new surroundings.

My top tip for you is to talk to anyone and everyone. It doesn't matter who you talk to, just talk, get yourself out there. There's a chance that you'll make a friend for life, someone who you'll go on adventures with or someone you may not see again after Welcome Week, but you won't regret speaking to them. There are people from all over at University, you cannot even begin to imagine the conversations you'll have!
