Freshers week was great this year a lot of security to ensure our safety which is always good. Ques weren't bad early in the evening when i went. Bar staff were amazing, great experience and great music!

Lasted two weeks long and included travel buses to all events Events were fun apart from Harry Potter night and the music is decent though doesn't have much dnb/ house music. Had other freshers eg Halloween and refreshers also which is good as entrance to clubs are expensive

My move-in experience was great. Student ambassadors were helpful in giving tips and revealed many events happening. The friendliness of the people in Uni was solidified when a student ambassador knocked on my door room every month to ask how things are getting on and to give a small treat (chocolate, sweets, etc). The events during freshers week were varied. Different types of events for people with various music types were happening, allowing the chance of meeting new people. A tip that I should have listened to and would emphasise to people starting Uni is to go out and have fun, make the most of your time and to say 'hi' to anyone as one of the things I've learnt is that everyone is open to talk.

What a brilliant week! Rockstar promotions put on an event every day for two weeks and the tickets were very cheap plus medical student have a freshers week before the normal freshers so they can get to know everyone on their course. Each night out has a different theme to it which is great and you get lots of freebies like t-shirts, bags, doughnuts and coffee which was great.

Fresher's Week was a good experience that reinforced my belief that I had chosen the right university. Fresher's Fair was excellent. It was extremely easy to sign up to clubs and societies and to try things out. There was also a number of excellent induction events within my department (criminology).

The move in experience was smooth and easy. It was easy to get settled in. The Freshers fair have you so much choice and it was good that it was over 2 days so you got a chance to check out everything

The events at Leicester’s freshers went on for 2 weeks straight and they were insane! I met my mates I have now there and I wouldn’t change it! The events are different everyday so it doesn’t get boring and it was fun dressing up for some of them! Fancy dress bar crawls were definitely the best.

Made a lot of great friends and overall had a very positive experience, wouldn't change anything really

Fresher's fortnight tested my party stamina with all the events, but it was the best way to connect with my flatmates and start meeting people from different courses.
