Welcome Week 2019



Our Postgraduate Welcome Week is one of the largest in the UK and one of the very few dedicated to postgraduate students.

From parties to talks, fairs to tours, there is something for everyone, and the more you get involved, the more people you will meet!

Our evening events are the highlight of the Welcome Week calendar. Each event costs between £3 – £5 entry or you can buy a Welcome Week Wristband which gets you guaranteed entry to all events plus extra discounts throughout the week too
