You asked: What is Fresher's week?
Your time at university begins with Freshers' Week, a variety of events to help you settle in, make friends and see what the university has to offer. This year, there are freshers' events throughout September.
These include Freshers' Fayres, which enable you to choose your sports clubs and interest societies. Make sure you come along to as many events as you can to make the most of what's on offer to you. At previous fayres, companies have offered great student deals and freebies.
Socialising is a big part of Freshers' Week, with event nights, often including named acts, culminating in the Freshers' Ball, a chance to dress up and enjoy the night with new-found friends.
You will also need to attend the Induction programme provided to you by your school.
