It's the same as far as I'm aware - they defiantly arrived during the summer holidays. As I said - most of it is stuff from the union plus forms for the sports centre and your Information Services card, obviously the union stuff has to be finalised over the summer. I was unconditional and it took a while, was watching the post for a few months
EDIT: Sorry - rephrase that - I cant remember exactly when it came out, whether it was before results or not, but it wasn't dramatically early, so just because you're unconditional doesnt mean it will arrive in June or anything.
Does Aber have a Fresher's Ball as well as the May Ball?
As well as union events alot of subjects have social type things on in the first couple of weeks which are good for meeting people too. I've found theres less in the way of formal events compared to some other unis, I prefer it like this tbh
