    I want to plan a holiday next year as late in the summer holidays as possible (ideally september), but I don't want it to interfere with freshers and preparation to start university. When do all these events start? Or can anyone say a date before which there definitely won't be any uni events?

    Check with your uni. They may have this information on their website somewhere in terms of dates.

    It's usually the week before the actual course would start. That's what it is for me anyway.

    Each university has its own term dates. As a general rule though, aside from a few Scottish universities, freshers week doesn't tend to happen before mid September (so starting on the 11th in 2017) but it could be any week after that until early-mid October. You also need to factor in time for shopping for the things you need for university.
