The events experienced during Freshers’ week were extremely well organised and highly emjoyable! Tickets were sorted promptly and this added to the experience. The best tip is to be confident and put your best self forward, be your own best advocate!

Moving away from home was challenging for the first few days as expected. However, I settled in pretty quickly and made some friends quickly through my course and accommodation. Events were decent and the experience overall was enjoyable.

For freshers’ week it would be best suited for the events to just be based around random funny events, or simple ones such as 90s night for example, a lot of the events that are there are for a small minority who are actually minded by the ‘theme’, instead to just make events something that everyone/ the majority will take part in

Freshers week both years have been amazing and night out filled. Many different types of event for drinkers and non drinkers. I met my closest friends during freshers and the staff were incredibly understanding and welcoming

Loads of events packed in over two weeks. Really reasonable prices, and the Intu student lock in is full of good deals.

My freshers week we brilliant, I met lots of friends that I am very close to now that I am in my second year. There was a lot of drinking such as having a jäger shot from an ice slope which was fun.

For me, starting in University of Derby wasn't that hard. Whole move in was scary, I had to leave my family and friends in other country, start fresh. While moving in keep your doors open and have a chat with as many people as you can. Events there great, in my case I found some friends to come with me and tried to get to know each other better. In university scheduling time for assignments is priority number 1.
