    Ok, so this is my insurance so im preparing for the worst.
    It says on my offer letter that the start date is the 21st September..
    Is this the start date of freshers week or the start date of the course, because i am going camping from the 18th until the 20th so need to know what date i have to be there.

    If it is the same as last year, it was classed as the induction week. Really, it was a few hours for 3 days, where they went through the timetable with you and apart from that, told you nothing useful at all!

    Students who did not attend this and started the following week, knew about as much as the ones who attended these days!

    If you are claiming for loans though, we got them sorted out in this time, handing in the relevant paper work, but that was it!

    Enjoy your camping!
