    So confused about freshers! Way too many events, and do you reckon most people stick to the SU organised events? If so it starts on the 8th. Here's the link to the KCLSU stuff: http://www.kclsu.org/pageassets/fres...vent-guide.pdf

    It is confusing, I think alot of the smaller events are introductory events by individual societies. Best bet I think is to go to the freshers fayre, choose the societies you might want to join, then pick the events to go to that way Think that's what I will do!

    Has anyone heard about start dates for their actual courses yet? Or when Registration opens?!

    for me, enrolment is on 18th sept - i think people at guys are enrolling mon-fri that week? (I got an email about this last week) Not sure if it's the same for the rest of the uni campuses though.
    apparently teaching starts on the 22nd for medics at least...i'd assumed that freshers would start that week too but apparently it's the week before? too much going on!

    Ah okay, Somewhere near the end of September then, still got some time to prepare I think the introductory event is the 14th September, the first official meet and greet. Looking forward to starting now!

    So I have a question. Is Freshers Month mainly for undergrads? I'm on the Facebook group and it seems like it is.

    I'm a postgrad....but I assume its okay to go to freshers events! I've written a few PostGraduate specific events down in my diary;

    [ ] 22nd Sept: Postgraduate party at college drop-outs
    [ ] 27th Sept: Postgraduate Notting Hill and Portabello Market Tour

    I think if your not much into the clubbing/drinking/bar socialising scene they have alot of good options as well! I'm not much of a drinker, more of a wine with dinner rather than shots of tequila , I think I will be going to events like the comedy club [26th Sept] or Street Art Walk [27th Sept], rather than the club nights! As I'm commuting I also need to be able to get the last train home! So day ones are a better idea for me!

    Seems to be alot of picnic/treasure hunt/explore London events which all look good as well

    Ahh! That's awesome! There are so many events and many seem like they're so much fun. Everything is a little bit overwhelming now, but I think I should make the time to socialize and attend a few events. I'm trying to see if any postgrads on the FB group want to go with me. I'll think about which events to attend and maybe we can meet there? If you'd like.

    It is a bit overwhelming but I reckon as soon as we have been to induction, know timetables and have met other students on our courses, things will settle in and worry will disappear Yeah would like to meet you guys there private message me
