Welcome to GREFest 2022

What is GREFest?

GREFest is our festival of skills to welcome you to the start of the university year. Whether you’re studying from home or staying with us on campus,  you’ll be able to participate in our interactive sessions.  

There are plenty of useful, informative and fun sessions to support you whatever your academic needs. 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. Our festival is packed full of events to support you as you begin your university journey. 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!

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.
