I was really excited as a new university university student and was looking forward to the freshers week. The university had alot of freshers events piled up during the week. Also the societies and clubs at the university were very diverse and large in numbers, each with their own uniqueness. The fresher parties were also amazing. My accomodation induction was slightly not as i thought it to be with less socials around the corner. But overall it was a great experiance.

Freshers goes on for 2 weeks in Leicester which is nice, you don't feel like you're going to miss out on the Freshers experience as there's always something going on. DO NOT buy the Freshers wristband. When I bought it 2 years ago, it was about £55 and I used it twice, which would've cost me about £10. Unless you're going out every single night, which you won't, don't do it. Fresher's fair is nice too, the societies fair is very in your face and awkward but the free stuff that companies give out is GREAT.

Freshers allowed us to improve our relationships with our flatmates and make new friends before our course started. It improved the first few weeks at uni when you are to miss home most.

Freshers week had some good events on, and it was well marketed which made it easy to know which events you wanted to go to and which you didn’t. Freshers fair also gave you some good discounts on things like dominos pizza and gym memberships.

Freshers week was one of the most eventful and rememerable events produced by the university of Leicester. I was happy with my move in and luckily I got on with my flat mates very very well. The freshers fair was very helpful and made me decide to join societies like streetdance and basketball. I feel the inductions could be more suited to the students needs about the university, for example have more information about where all the different rooms are on campus. The freshers week wristband event was the most rememberable event and definitely the highlight of freshers week. Overall, freshers week was a very good experience.

My move in experience was very pleasant, this was because of a combination of excitement and the fact that I was moving into a luxury student accommodation - it was exciting figuring out were to put what and making every thing look nice as well as looking forward to getting to know my flat mates. The events were organised very well, queues were limited giving the circumstance of how many people were going, they were also super fun and good vibes. I’m quite a social person so meeting new people was not a problem, everyone was so friendly that even for introverts, meeting new people wouldn’t be a problem. My tip would be just put yourself out there, have lots of fun, you only do uni once so make the most of it and indulge yourself in all the activities.

Freshers was one of the best weeks ever. When you move in there’s a cute freshers pack with info about the events and a few essentials such as energy drinks and marmite the actual events are fun and there’s a good variety: from BBQs, fairs, to your traditional party/club night. Everyone is super friendly as you’re all in the same boat and it’s genuine good vibes

Moving to uni wasn’t a big change for me, I was used to moving around, moving schools and meeting new people. But I was surprised when on my first night after moving in and going out with my block to the first uni rave. I ended up back in my bed at 2am crying. I don’t even remember why, but I cried myself to sleep. The rest of freshers was fun, refreshing. Loads of free goodies, fun and events and everyone was extremely friendly.

Friend of and approachable staff, make the move and all events which surround the freshers move up, a more relaxing experience. A big tip would be to actually try during first year!lol Many firms look at your initial grades, when you apply for schemes and thus having a decent set of grades behind you, woo reply help when setting you out from the crowd!
