    Just relised I am away in Portrugal over freshers week and I was just wondering how much of disadvantage it will be?

    Yeah I'm also wondering this as I'm wanting to go to Bestival which finishes on 11th or 12th sept...would be missing the first day and first night...is that much of a biggie? Thanks x

    Shouldn'y be a huge disadvantage. Basically its Tuesday and Thursday which are the days I think usually assigned as "college days"-you have induction lectures, which are just admin. If you get to chose modules, i think you sign up for them officially then. I'd let someone in the support team for your course/college know so they can tell you what to do.

    Final day of freshers (sunday) is the fair, where you can sign up for soceties all in one place. I couldnt find most of what i wanted to do, so ended up going to their events and signing up later on-no problems doing that either. Other things are taster events, but usually a society/club will let you come to one event for free just to try it out if you want.
