    We didn't have a week off, during the day there were still things we had to go to eg introduction lectures, but it wasn't anything important

    I'm sure my fresher's week also involves introductory lectures and so on. I wouldn't really be worried or anything - and plus, be excited nonetheless, as you will probably have lots of cool information and facts about the course you wanted to study

    Hello

    It depends on the university - for example, at mine Freshers Week was a mixture of day-time and night-time events that introduced you to the university, the services available and the societies as well as ice-breaker / social events to prepare you for university life!

    However some universities do hold introductory lectures for certain courses - they aren't majorly important but they do let you know whats what in regards to your course etc.

    Best of luck
