Welcome Week – sometimes known as ‘freshers' week’ – is designed to ease you in to university life. 

Welcome Week

During your first few days on campus, we will help you settle in, find your way around and prepare you for university life. This is called ‘Welcome Week'.

Welcome Week timetable

Your Course Tutors will set out your Welcome week timetable for you.  Your first week features a range of events where you'll meet the people who will be an important part of your time at Worcester, and have opportunities to find out more about the exciting University community you have joined!

As part of your academic induction, you will also learn more about your course, and meet your fellow students and your lecturers. 

Students' Union

The Students' Union will also run events both online and within the Students' Union, and its bar, the Hangar, from when you arrive and throughout your time at Worcester, to help you settle in and meet new people.  You will be able to find out all the different ways you can get involved in Societies, sport, volunteering, student networks and groups, fundraising, student representation and much more.

Follow the Students’ Union either on the SU website or on the SU Facebook page to find out the latest information.

Download our app

Remember to download the University of Worcester Guidebook App on the App Store or Google Play.  This will tell you about events and activities taking place over the Welcome Weekend and your first week. 

The app will provide you with campus maps and local information such as shops, banks and travel. You'll also find answers to questions often asked by first year students and who to contact for help and advice.
