    Hello,

    Well Day One is usually moving-in day and being an international student, your experiences may differ, but usually it is a busy rollercoaster of a day!
    You'll get there, pick up your keys and such and move into your room, usually spend the day sorting your room out and what not. Then normally the first night of Freshers starts - so after you've sorted your room out, meet people in your halls and talk to them and see if they are going out, socialise and make friends for Freshers.

    Everyday through Freshers is a bit of a blur because it moves so fast. Just enjoy your time, push your comfort zone and make friends and memories. Enjoy the Freshers events, get to know the city and your university and prepare for lectures.

    Sometimes you have beginning lectures in this week but that depends on the university. If not, just prepare for university! I'd suggest as soon as you get there sorting out a doctors, find out where your local shops are, the type of public transport you can get and how much you'll need to spend on shopping etc.

    Good luck!
