Providing I meet my grades (increasingly unlikely due to levels of revision currently) I would quite like to go to freshers, but… #plottwist I want to be doing something else on the 27th till the 30th of September. So my question for you is, if term starts on Monday the 5th, does freshers start on Saturday the 3rd or the week before?

Cheers

Apparently Warwick doesn't have a freshers week as such. Arrivals weekend will be the 3rd/4th and then there will freshers events for two weeks alongside introductory lectures. So yeah unless you're an international and would have to attend orientation the week before you wouldn't have to come to warwick till the 3rd/4th depending on your surname

Apparently not in the sense of other unis
It's two weeks long though and is centred around buying tickets for events, fairs and introductory lectures to your course. I really hope this isn't true or they change it to a proper freshers week with no lectures

I didn't think they'd ever had a "proper freshers week" - I thought it had always been two weeks mixed in with lectures and seminars etc. Keep in mind that, from what others have said, not all lectures or seminars will be running in the first two weeks so you'll still have time to have fun.

Coming to think about it I think the fact it's two weeks long is probably even better because there's longer to meet new people. Just hope I'll be able to stay awake during the day haha

Given that we pay £300 a week in tuition fees alone I bloody well expect lectures and teaching....

Yeah but not during freshers week! Like this is meant to be a time to met everyone and just have fun. Also most unis freshers week would be week 0 so we wouldn't be paying tuition fees anyways.
I dunno, maybe it's not everyone's cup of tea.

Technically, as long as we're there, we're paying - so you might as well get your money's worth. Besides, as you mentioned, not everyone enjoys fresher's in the "going-out-all-night-and-getting-drunk" sense. You don't think you're going to still be able to meet people and have fun even if you're meant to be attending lectures/seminars/whatevers whilst partying and meeting people?

I think it'll also help with homesickness in the first couple of weeks, it's going to be busy so you'd have less time to mope around. I might just be a bit unique in my opinion though so... :curious:

I didn't look at in the sense of homesickness though that is very true! I'm sure it'll be a laugh regardless. Just can't wait to start now 😁

It's going to be so great just living on my own, I just hope I get a good set of flatmates I really don't know how to describe myself well on the form they give us for accommodation. I'm thinking of just writing "sociable, going out 2/3 times per week, neat and tidy kitchen, hardworking near exams/coursework deadlines" but then should I mention music tastes and that?? Ah..this is going to be worse than the UCAS personal statement haha

^ That's pretty much the ideal scenario! I'm not opposed to going out, but I do want a decent degree, too. Maybe the forms will be specific? I hope it's not a personal statement type of thing.
Which accommodation are you planning on putting down as your first choice? I'm thinking Rootes/ Heronbank(:

I'm glad others get how stressing the idea of describing yourself is. I'm worried it's going to start sounding like a singles ad "Brunette seeks clean housemates, who are sociable yet know when to shut up etc..."

I know I wasn't the person your originally asked, but I'm think Rootes or JM/AV for first choice - I'm just not too bothered about ensuite. Why are you thinking Rootes? If you don't mind me asking?

hopefully the forms are just going to be straight to the point, I couldn't bare to write another personal statement I'd end up sounding so boring haha.
I think I'm going to go with Sherbourne or AV The plan for me is to live somewhere somewhat quiet and socialise in rootes for predrinks, well that's what one of the open day guides recommended although she stayed in bluebell

Good plan! At least, if you sound boring on the personal statement, none of your new flatmates (or corridormates?) have to know. I've asked around about it and just keep getting told that it's really simple and all we'll have to do is talk about what times we go to bed, how often we like to go out, whether we're loud or quiet etc. My only problem is that I don't really know. :confused:

My friends are a bit naff at the moment, so we barely see each other out of school, my sleep schedule's erratic - it's either 9pm or 3am, I don't seem to have an in between! - and when I know someone or feel comfortable, you can barely get me to shut up! I'm dreading this stupid personal statement because if you get it wrong you'll be placed with people you have nothing in common with!

Sherbourne and AV are really nice, but, from what everyone's said, they're difficult to get into (I think?) because they're nice en suites and everyone wants one. It's so hard to choose! :unimpressed:
