Freshers’ Week and Starting University Life at Exeter

Freshers’ Week at the University of Exeter helps you to settle in to university life. The week is jampacked with events and taster sessions - giving you the chance to find your way around, make friends and sort out the essentials before your course begins.

Everyone experiences Freshers’ Week differently and your Students’ Guild is here to help you get the most out of yours. There are over 900 student–led events during Freshers’ Week and a majority of these are free! It is also important to note that not everyone drinks alcohol- most of the events on offer do not include alcohol. Take this great opportunity to get involved in as much or as little as you would like!
