Welcome Week events

Welcome Week is your chance to find out all that the university has to offer, with Students' Union fairs to introduce you to societies and sports clubs and a range of events to help you make friends and settle in. It can also be overwhelming, with course inductions to attend and lots of new people and places to get to know. If you’re after a quieter experience or need to take a moment to breathe, take a look at our relaxed Welcome activities.
