You definitely will - we had one even this year, it was just mostly online. How “normal” it is is really outside Imperial’s control but the SU will do their best!

Criminal record check - don’t worry about it, when they send you the form it’s super easy to fill in. You will need all your addresses for the past five years so if you’ve moved around a lot it can be annoying but otherwise it’s fine usually.

Mine was during COVID so unlikely to be representative :lol: AnnaBananana will know what it's usually like.

Essentially for the first 2 weeks you have introductory lectures explaining what the course is like and how it's structured which are quite chill, so except at the weekend there's uni stuff to go to. You have an occupational health appointment then as well and collect your iPad and ID card.
Most of the actual "Fresher's Fortnight" is organised by ICSU and ICSMSU (so you can go to both the medic's events and the Imperial events) and then clubs and socs will organise their own things too, usually pub nights. There's a societies fair for ICSU and ICSM which is usually where you find out what socs are doing, get on mailing lists etc. Ours were online and pretty terrible. The events are fairly typicaly uni things: a quiz, 'speed friending', a RAG treasure hunt, sport taster sessions, volunteering training sessions etc. Have a look at: https://www.icsmsu.com/freshers-space/ for way much more info on what Freshers 2020 was like

We had a very busy freshers - some nights both ICSU and ICSMSU had events on so we went to both because we didn’t want to miss anything. Plus there were things like halls mixers. Many of us were quite glad to drink less and get on with the course by the end of the fortnight...

That’s great! Thank you for sharing your experience. How was the workload initially - do you feel like you were thrown into the deep end or was it a more manageable transition with more work accumulating over time?
