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.

It was real good ooooh boy lemme tell ya, every part of it was simply the best. If i were to give a tip for new students it would be not to listen to the snakes around campus, not metaphorical ones but like real snakes.

My moving in experience was exciting. The organisation of the university to get us into our flats was exceptional. The university organised freshers events were great although, for what they were, maybe a touch expensive. Meeting new people is always a nervy thing to do but it’s something you have to get on with and it only gets easier.

My Uni if Birmingham freshers week experience is one that I will never forget. It was 13:00 on Saturday afternoon driving in the vale when the nerves really picked up. However the nerves were instantly put to rest when I finally met all my flat/block mates and found how friendly and welcoming they all where. From that point on freshers just got better and better, from the crazy nights out to meeting and making really good friends with my course mates. My tips for new freshers this year would be to do as much as possible in freshers week to meet as many new people as possible and find out what you like and will want to continue doing for the rest of your uni career (e.g rugby union for me).

Lots of information was provided regarding the accommodation halls, lectures and the course more generally and the city itself. There were plenty of opportunities to get to know people and the university itself.

Living in Shackleton, move in is always a bit painful because of the distance to the car park. Helpers were on hand to carry stuff for you. Freshers tickets were £55 or £70 depending on events, generally overpriced. Could have gone to the events by just buying spare tickets, and cheaper because you can avoid the bad ones.

Was a great experience, moving in was fab esp after being nervous about it it was acc fine. Socialising with flatmates on first night was super good for all getting to know each other straight away and making friends. Freshers fair good for finding out things that go on at uni. Don't drink much so didn't engage with many Freshers events but still lots of fun

Volunteers at the accommodation very welcoming and wanted to make you feel at ease. Process of finding things in common and organising social activities eg nights out very easy due to like mindedness. Don’t buy text books and not everyone needs to bring a toaster and a kettle

I thought freshers week was great, but the wristband events could have been easier to buy tickets for individual events instead. I understand that the uni wants to make money, but before you get to uni you don't know which of the new friends you've made are even going to the events! Plus they made it quite difficult to get the wristbands when term actually started. Overall, the events themselves were actually pretty decent, especially the bar crawls!

Move in was really easily convenient. Freshers tickets were like £70 which is ridiculous considering how substandard most of the events are.

There were plenty of events on offer, both during the days and on the nights. Ticket bundles offered good variety, however were quite expensive. Events were good fun and I enjoyed them immensely.

Perfect! When I came to the University Halls of Residence guys were absolutelly fantastic! They helped me with the bags, showed me the campus around! Other student’s were very kind and nice. Tips: don’t be scared or afraid of the new place, everything will be all right by the time, just take your time and enjoy it as much as possible

Helpful movers, quick and easy. Events varied both onsite and in the city with a good mix of themes. Paint party wasnt very paint-y but Freshers Ball was great.
