GET YOURSELF READY
Going to university is an exciting step and we want to make sure that you have a great start to your new life here at the University of South Wales!
BEFORE YOU ARRIVE
This is not a definitive list (we're hoping these are the things you may not have thought about)
Enrol online & check out your induction timetable
Set your family up with Skype/Facetime
If you're moving away from home, this is the ideal time to teach your family how to video call, it'll be like you never left.
Oh yes, the D word. This will become your favourite word as a student, apart from 'degree' at the end (maybe). Take advantage of over 200 discounts with an NUS Extra card for only £12. You can buy one online or from the SU Info Desk.
Sports clubs and societies
From Salsa dancing to Pizza Appreciation, there’s a club or society just waiting for you to be a part of. Head down to Freshers’ Fair to check out what’s on offer and give something new a go. If you find one that takes your fancy, don't be afraid to start your own, you can set up a club or society for just about anything!
Buy your Freshers' tickets
We've put together a jam packed programme of events for Freshers, there’s something for everyone and it’s a fantastic way to make new friends. Popular events sell out quickly so be sure to buy your tickets early.
Join us on social media
This is a really good way of keeping track on things going on during Freshers' and throughout the rest of the year. You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or if you prefer videos of our cute little campus bunnies follow us on Snapchat.
Work out how to get around campus
This can be a bit daunting at first, but everyone will be in exactly the same position. Take a look at these handy campus maps, and if you fancy some super swotting, try this life-saving find a room tool.
