Fresher's packs are a big no no because the SU sells them at a very expensive price but nearer to the date other students would sell them cheaper. Overall though fresher's week was great.

It was an absolute blast! A lot of orientation event and things to do to meet new people. The atmosphere and night out are always good too. I think freshman are lucky to have such a good start to their Uni life! 10\10 would recommend Birmingham uni!

Freshers week was really inclusive for all regardless of you’re a party freak or freebies lover. The activities suited most if not all student personalities and was engaging.

Freshers week was a really fun start to the year and meeting so many new people was great, but the events put on by the Guild were incredibly overhyped by them and overpriced. They missold what was basically 4 nights at the union plus a few elsewhere as being this amazing festival of really different fun events, and for £80 this was very steep. Also the “freshers ball” was just yet another night at the Union, no different to any of the others, yet it was £20 on its own.

Freshers week for me was absolutely amazing and an experience I will never forget. The welcoming team were the first people i met upon arrival and they were so kind and put me at ease about my nerves. I secondly met my flat mates who I had already talked to online thanks to Birmingham’s flat mate finder app- they were incredibly kind and I can say I have made friends for life- we are currently buying a house together for second year! The events were off the charts they had every type of music you could think of so there’s always an event for everyone and every night out is such a laugh! The useful tips I would give for students moving to uni would be DONT take too much unnecessary stuff with you! I ended up taking a slush puppy machine that I used once then had to lug home on the train with me at the end of term!! But the most important advice is the generic one- put yourself out there, join as many societies as you can and take the opportunity to make friends!

I moved in on the Monday and immediately made friends with the people in my halls. We all decided to go out together that night and it was honestly one of the best night out i’ve ever had. The rest of the week we went out almost every night.

People helping you move in were great, got settle very easily. The events themselves were ok, not amazing, not bad. But did meet lots of great people so can't knock the whole experience.

From the first day all of the staff and student ambassadors were helpful and friendly. Everything was well organised and for the first week there was always someone to ask questions to. The freshers events were really fun - the nights out were really big and everyone was friendly and approachable.

Quality nights out at a range of different bars and clubs. The ticket was expensive but there was no other option. Loads of free events on during the day. By the end of the week I felt fully integrated into the university.

It sounded like a lot of fun! I didn’t actually attend any of the events myself but my housemates really enjoyed it and found it extensively diverting! Also free beer

It was really fun! I didn’t actually go to any events as I am a postgraduate student and it did not really appeal but my housemates loved it!

I felt very welcome when I moved into my student accommodation and I found everyone so friendly and caring. The events were so good, and I enjoyed every single one, met some nice people and made some life long friends.

Fresher’s is very overrated. It’s good that a whole week is dedicated to going out and meeting people, but don’t expect them to be the people you spend the rest of your university time with, my advice is to branch out and meet as many people as possible. Also, the welcome talks for your subject are not useful.

Move in was smooth, efficient and welcoming. The events were varied and enjoyable, and well catered for, as well as fun. Meeting new people was easy, encouraged and made freshers great. Everyone was eager to meet and it made for a great environment. My advice would be to not hold back and get to know as many people as possible as it makes the experience, while being chilled out too. And of course to remember you only do freshers once, so to have a great time.

Overall freshers week was a mixed experience for me. I personally don’t feel like it lives up to the hype! Just focus on settling into a new place and don’t force friendships, talk to new people and let it happen naturally. It’s really not as scary as you might think because everyone’s in the same boat.
