Disabled and Specific Learning Differences
We strive to make our Welcome Week events as accessible as possible for disabled students. If you have any questions about the accessibility of any of our events, please email us at email@example.com.
Although it might feel nerve-wracking at times, try and meet as many new students as possible. The best way to do so is by joining one or more of the many Societies and attending local events. Rynelle Oliver, MSc Psychological Well-being and Mental Health

I'd make an effort to go out with people from halls or to throw yourself into the organised events for non-traditional students. You'll never have the opportunity again to spend an entire week making connections with people - don't waste it! Rich Bromhall, PhD in English

The more you get involved, the more you will get out of it. It's important to realise that everyone is feeling nervous whatever their age, and everybody is trying to find their way around this new experience. Making contact with other students, mature or otherwise, will help you feel more involved in student life and open the doors to other opportunities. Nino Briffa, BA (Hons) Product Design

In terms of opportunities, NTU has something for everyone so having a chat with a member of staff can sometimes help new students figure out what sector they are inclined to work in, or where they might like to volunteer etc. It’s never too early to network!

Hearing from current postgraduate students or recent alumni can be a real motivator, so look out for events that offer that opportunity. Libby Farrier-Williams, MSc Management and Marketing

Confetti students are just as much a part of NTU as all our other students, so we would encourage you to get involved in as many of the events listed on this website as possible. Welcome Week is a great opportunity to get to know Nottingham, the University and – most importantly – to meet new friends, so make sure you don’t miss out!
