Events and activities

The University and your Union of Students plan an exciting range of activities and events. 

Freshers and Welcome events

We put together a fantastic line-up of events to make your 'Welcome' to the University as social and exciting as possible. Along with your Union of Students, we host a wide range of activities for you to enjoy.

Welcome Heroes

During 'Welcome' periods, our student and staff Welcome Heroes are out in full force. With their bright pink t-shirts and friendly faces, they are ready to support you with anything from finding your way around to offering digital advice and answering queries. 

International students

International students can access a wide range of support services from across the University. These support services can help with admissions, accommodation, wellbeing, careers and employment, and much more. We also have a dedicated International Student Hub who can provide advice on visa and immigration requirements.
