Welcome Week

Welcome Week

Welcome Week – sometimes known as ‘freshers' week’ – starts on Monday 18th September.

It features a range of events designed to help ease you in to university life. You will be introduced to other students and lecturers, all of whom will be an integral part of your time at Worcester.

Once you have registered, you will be able to see your personalised Welcome Week programme via your SOLE (Student Online Learning Environment) page. For more general information, please download our Student Handbook.

There are also a wide range of social events taking place during the week, including a BBQ, live music and a treasure hunt through the city. Take a look at some of the highlights in our festival guide. If you're arriving before 16 September, we've also got some early bird events to kick start your year.

Make sure you follow the Students’ Union online and via social media to find out about all of the activities that are taking place.
