We're looking forward to welcoming you to Sussex

Freshers Week is a week of events to help new students (often known as 'freshers') settle in, get to know Brighton & Hove, meet people and have fun!

Who is Freshers Week for?

Freshers Week is a week of activities for everybody - undergraduate and postgraduate, full or part time, mature or international students - that takes place the week before formal classes begin.

It is a chance for you to get to know people on your course, people you're living with, the University, Brighton and the Students' Union.

What does the Students' Union do?

The Students' Union is run for and by students, and provides students with an opportunity to get involved in a variety of activities

When you enrol with the University you'll automatically become a member of the Students' Union and be part of our independent, student-led organisation. That means you can make it what you want it to be and be part of our collective voice.
