Top 5 things to do at the Re|Freshers' Fairs...

Re|Freshers' Week is back for another year!

This week of events is supported by our separate societies and sports Re|Freshers’ Fairs which gives you the perfect opportunity to get involved in something new for semester two. Maybe you missed out on Freshers’ Fair the first time around, or have seen what some of our fab societies and clubs have been getting up to and want to consider signing up. 

Whatever your uni experience so far, consider improving it further by coming along. We will also have a couple of local and national companies there (with freebies to give out)!

Here’s our top 5 things you can do at the fair: 

Sign up to a new society or club

We have a diverse range of societies attending on the Thursday 7th from; BDance, Musical Theatre, Music, Film and our LGBTQ+ Society! Chat to their committee team and find out what they get up to and whether it would suit you. 

Or come along and meet sports clubs on Friday 8th and check out what teams you can join. Did you know statistically students who get involved in their SU and societies/clubs are more likely to get a first-class degree? 

Enjoy some candy floss!!!

National Express are coming along, with a candy floss machine! Why not indulge on a sweet treat and speak to one of their team about the great student discounts they offer. 

Want to expand your CV? BUNAC will be there!

BUNAC are the company to go to for working abroad and volunteering, you could even sign up for Camp America 2019! Learn more about it here and visit their stand if you’re interested in starting a new adventure. 

Learn about academic support 

Action Tutoring will be there, who are an education charity supporting pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, and our support services will be also be on hand to have an informal chat with you about any queries you have. 

Grab some freebies

Even more local companies will be there, including IPG Paintball, Yoyo, Streamline Taxi’s and Totum! They’ll be there with some useful information and offers for students, but most importantly FREEBIES!
