Freshers 2020 is here!

We’ve been carefully crafting the Freshers 2020 experience to ensure that our students have a safe, memorable start to the 2020-21 academic year. Whilst the current circumstances mean that this year may look slightly different to normal, we’re confident that Freshers will be as fun and vibrant as it always is.

We’ll be bringing you a range of events from September through to October, meaning home and international students all receive a warm welcome. As always, this will be a great chance for you to find your feet at Herts, meet other students and make memories that'll last a lifetime. Our online events will feature Cook-Alongs, Escape Rooms and Coffee Mornings. We are also planning on bringing the buzz onto campus with our Info Points and a huge Campus Scavenger Hunt.

Be sure to check out the details of our extensive events programme below, along with heaps of video content to keep you entertained from afar and an insight into some of our most popular services.
