Moving in was quite easy and we had a lot of support from uni, social events were organised for us to get to know more people, both during the day and flat parties during the night.

I joined a lot of great societies and made a lot of friends. I also had a great experience moving into a new country and settling in to the culture and place as a whole.

Move in was great, all the days were busy with activities and nights were great fun meeting and socialising with people was expensive at times though

The fresher's fair was what I loved the most. It was great to see all the societies and sports club together. And all the freebies! Also all the events organised seemed so interesting, it was impossible to choose.

I like being in university and am very excited for first year and my first ever brewdog beer. Going out and meeting new people is my favourite way to pass my time. It's pretty daunting walking into a kitchen full of people that you've never met before and knowing that you're going to have to spend at least a year of your life living with them, I was convinced that I was going to be living with a murderer or something but everyone is in the same boat, try not to freak out as much as I did. I remember my first day at uni like it was yesterday, a boy and a girl knocked on my door, we sat around the kitchen table and talked about ourselves and then, we headed to the pub in the union. There's nothing like breaking the ice than going for a large glass of wine, everything after that is history, once freshers week is over with, you'll be the best of friends, even if you don't click with your flatmates, you're bound to meet someone in the same vicinity as you who will be your friend.

A wide variety of events were available, from pub crawls to jazz nights. On the moving in day staff were very helpful and helped us to settle in.

I feel the clubs in Aberdeen are too focused on profit and stuff as many students into the clubs as possible. Institute regularly go above health and safety recommendations. I think there’s a lack of ideas at freshers too, could do with more creativity

was a bit concerned about Freshers, because I don’t drink loads. In the end, there were plenty of fun activities that didn’t involve going out and getting super drunk, so I was pretty happy

At first I was dreading freshers week due to not knowing anyone when moving in, however, I’ve met many incredible people all around who made the experience so much better and the events were endless in a good way.

From the moment of moving in until now it has been an unforgettable experience, living in a city with such historical University which also includes more modern facilities such as the Sir Duncan Rice Library which is frequently used by many students and therefore the highest floors being the quietest. There have been many events prepared to welcome the new students ranging from induction of individual courses to club activities trial session and night out.

Wow, wow, wow. That's three wow's from me. Fresher's week was probably the most intense and amazing time of my (so far mediocre) life. Aberdeen was lit from top to bottom, around the sides and right down the middle, the place was bouncing and so was I. I joined every society along with everyone else, and likewise had no intention of doing any of it. Made some mates, made some enemies, would probably do it again.

My freshers week was a great experience for meeting new people from different backgrounds. Really helped me embed in to uni life.

Coming into uni for the first time was very scary but Freshers week was a brilliant start! From the beginning there were events planned, discount drinks and free goodies, perfect for a new student such as myself. Events included pub quiz, themed night outs, yoga, you name it they did it. Alongside all these organised events everyone seemed keen to make friends so we're constantly meeting new people and trying new things. This brilliant entry into university life really set the bar high for the rest of my time at university and eased me into uni life on my own.

Lots of stuff was on, unfortunately most of it was in Hillhead, ie the middle of nowhere even though Aberdeen has heaps of student houses in various parts of the city like Rosemount, city center, King street and KittyBrewster. When we did actually make the effort to trek across the city it was usually worth it, did a lot of taster sessions and such. Often ran out of food half an hour in to events but hey ho, what can you expect when you promise young people free snacks!

For a small wee place, Aberdeen is probably the perfect size for a night out, you can get from either side of night life in a 20 minute walk (45 if the beers have hit too soon) and a fine array of different sorts of pubs and clubs for you to mix and match at your own desire.

You stupid cunts do you really think I'm going to write a full review. I hate brewdog beers and the company and i thought this was a silly marketing ploy. Instead of trying to screw brewdog, it appears I will only be screwing this company, which is good enough.

Good range of events, opportunities to sign up to societies as well as nights out etc. In addition good amount of subject specific events and inductions that were a good way to get settled into uni.

Move in experiance was easy. It was clear and obvious where I had to go to collect my keys for my halls. As long as you brought the correct documents, we were all emailed before about what we needed to bring so there was no issues with move in day. With regards to freshers week it’s self, it was great fun. Every night there was a different event on or a different club having some sort of promotion. This competition between clubs kept the prices low no matter where you went. Through your the week there was different fairs on to help get involved with clubs or societies, key in making great friends at uni. Joining a club instantly puts you in touch with like minded people and from there you can get help from students within the club that are further through there university careers. This is a major key in settling into uni life.
