Welcome Weeks – sometimes known as ‘freshers' weeks’ – are designed to ease you in to university life. 

For new and returning students these first few weeks on campus will help you settle in, find your way around and prepare you for university life. 

Welcome Weeks timetable

Your Course Tutors will set out your Welcome weeks 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. 

Events and activities

The Univeristy and Students' Union (SU) will also be running a range and in-person and virtual events over this period.  Details of these events will be published here shortly.


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.
