    Well it's short for freshers week so that should give you a clue

    Basically it's a week of bonding with flatmates and coursemates, usually via alcohol, getting to know the city and being handed free slices of pizza by domino's.

    'Freshers' is the first week of two after first arriving at uni. You won't have formal lectures or seminars (maybe a couple of introduction ones) but instead the week(s) is designed to help you get to know flatmates, other people, join societies, orientate yourself with campus/your uni/buildings/facilities and nights out/other activities.

    As someone said it's short for freshers week but most places it lasts about 2 weeks in the second week you get your first lectures and it's a way to ease you in you don't even notice the transition the first week's mainly bonding things and information about the course and university You'll find a lotto second years around over freshers week because it such a good time and it's even better when you know what to do and where to go because you don't wast time getting lost
