    I got my first weeks timetable from Uni, it says Freshers starts at 9:30am but enrolment and such doesn't start until 11:30. What am I supposed to do for those two hours? Am I just going to be wondering around on my own?

    Ugh, it's making me nervous!

    It's for meeting people and trying to find your way around. Everyone else will also be worried about being alone, so you'll be able to talk to them and find people from your course.

    If your enrollement isn't until half 11 and you don't have any other activities listed on your timetable before then, it would appear you don't need to turn up anywhere until half 11.

    Freshers week as a whole involves introductory/welcome events during the day and then the optional parties/club nights in the evening.

    Hello ,

    Freshers Week is a week of ice-breaker events and socialising situations. It's about learning about your university, your course, meeting people and making friends etc.
    Usually during the days there are activities set up by the university as well as Freshers Fair and society tasters and what not and then in the evenings there is usually the 'club nights' in the SU where you can drink (if you so wish) and dance and meet new people and then usually people go out into their city to hit clubs and what not. There's a lot going on in Freshers!

    Freshers is ALL week! It isn't just a one day thing. Enrolment is separate, that's just confirming your place at the university so they can tell Student Finance that you are there.

    In those two hours walk around, meet people and socialise!

    Good luck
