I had never been to an open day at any university so I didn’t know what to expect and felt like I wasn’t fully aware of what would happen. Especially as a mature student I wasn’t sure whether I would meet any other mature students.
- Get involved in a Society - or more than one!
- Use the Welcome Week website to find things to do like ice skating or something you're interested in, to meet people and get to see the city more.
- I really enjoyed the Freshers’ Fair as I got to look at and join some of the Societies!
- Welcome Week is really a time to get your bearings, know where important places are such as: food shops, accommodation, gym, lecture buildings etc. And also to try and meet new people. It really helps you settle in.
