Welcome Week

Welcome Week is your opportunity to find out all about the University and your course, and to meet all the important people you will be working with - academics, staff in your College, School and Department, and students that will be studying and living alongside you.

Unofficial event tickets

At present the Guild of Students are not selling official Welcome or Freshers Fest event tickets. However, we have seen a lot of unofficial ‘University of Birmingham’ Freshers events being advertised to students. These events are not affiliated with the Guild and we have no way of ensuring the necessary safety precautions are being taken at these events, so please do not purchase these tickets. Current Government guidelines do not allow any large scale or nightclub events to take place.

Find out more about the Guild of Students' Welcome, and explore the range of activities taking place across the University.
