    They are having a welcome week for international students. Is there anyone here who plans to attend that?

    I don't feel like attending, I've lived in the UK before so don't have to worry about bank accounts, transition tips etc. And I'm not sure if its the best/only opportunity to make friends.. I was wondering what everyone else is thinking.

    I've helped out at the international welcome week before solving students' IT issues. In my experience, it's really useful if you're new to the UK or have doubts, worries, concerns, anxiety, or want to make some good friends early on; but it is also far from essential. It's a great thing to do and a lot of fun but if you don't fancy it, you won't be the only one not attending by any means
