Check out what is going on in each of the festival "tents" - have fun, take a look around and chill out - trust us, you can't break anything!

GREFest: How does it work?

GREFest Tent

GREFest is designed to help students at all levels get the most out of the coming university year.

Here you will find live sessions where you can meet students just like yourselves and start making friends, tutors and librarians who are ready to support your studies, as well as wellbeing experts and members of the Students Union. All of our live events are accessible online using Teams, and on campus. Joining instructions will be posted in each tent when GREFest is underway

What students say

  This was absolutely brilliant! I'm so glad even though it's online a lot of fun can still be had.

  It's been more than 8 years since I last sat in the classroom, so these sessions will definitely help me with my academic skills and easy writing which am nervous about at the moment. So thanks for such help.

  Really helped to learn to use the Portal and to be able to get advice as a mature student.
