    Arrivals weekend is the 3rd and 4th of October I believe, this is when you move into your room on campus.
    Then the next week is freshers week!

    yah, it's not like they're hard core lectures or anything, just a bit of a taster of what the course is gonna be like etc. it's no bigge tbh, and it's a good way to make more friends straight away. there'll be loads of activities going on throughout the 2 weeks as well. it's gonna be a wicked 2 weeks for u.

    My question is when does term actually finish? Is it the same for students of all subjects? I can't remember the dates exactly but I remember looking before and the official last day of summer is the first quarter final of the world cup! I want to try and catch some England games back home!

    Each term is exactly 10 weeks long and the first two terms finish on the same day for everyone (plus or minus a day if some lectures decide to cancel lectures on the last day of term). For the third term it's more complicated since you'll have fewer or no lectures at all and it depends on when the exams finish. Generally, first years and second years take the majority of their exams during weeks 5-9 and third years/foruth years have finished by week 6-7.

    Quality, so assuming the exam times stay the same and we get some lectures off at the end I could catch a few more games at home.

    Yeah there's a freshers week, there's always loads going on, societies fairs, themed nights, stuff at the Union and lots more to get you into Uni life! Nothing majorly kicks off class-wise in the first week, from what I remember you might have some introductory talks in general, meet your personal tutor and also have a few seminars or lectures, but they'll probably just introduce the module.

    Go to warwick.ac.uk and search term dates. Then it gives you them for the next few years.

    Actually I'm currently on a year abroad (3rd year)... but next year will be my final year.
    You don't have to be a fresher to take part in freshers week... though in the second year most people go to Leamington to go out for the night as you live off campus then anyway.

    It's interesting seeing new students coming in to just begin their university experience, being new is fun, the first year is all about having fun and getting to know people...it's amazing and in some ways, when I see all the new students coming in, it makes me want to be them and do it all again! :-) It's fun!

    Am also looking forward to my final year though, but I think I will be sad to leave Warwick even if life outside of University has lots to offer too!!!

    It depends, there are two arrival dates: one on the Saturday and the other on the Sunday. It depends on your surname

    although tbh no one really cares if you come on the "wrong day". i havent heard of one person who got into any 'trouble' from doing it so everyone whos 'supposed' to arrive on Sunday you might as well come on Saturday and get an extra day in :woo:

    We had our general introductory/orientation lecture on Monday, nothing else that day. However, starting Tuesday, the full schedule kicked in. Granted, the first lecture is usually just an intro to the module, but otherwise you're expected to start working right away.

    In most of my modules, this wasn't the case. The first week was more introductions to the modules. I think only one or two modules properly began.

    Guess it's just the bane of maths students. We did have the Foundations preliminary test on the Wednesday as well.
