Students attending a Welcome Weekend

Welcome 2019

The University, together with The Students' Union at UWE, welcomes you to UWE Bristol.

Our official welcome runs from 11–13 September 2019. During this time, we'll be hosting events to introduce you to student life.

Freshers and welcome events

Events will take place across all campuses. Student Ambassadors in teal T-shirts will be on hand to answer questions, offer advice and help with directions to venues. You will be able to view details of welcome events on this page closer to the time.

International students

We know that welcome events are particularly important for new international students who may be adjusting to a new country, language and culture.

Book your free place at our Welcome Reception for new International and European Students, taking place on 3 October. We will be celebrating the arrival of all new international students to the beautiful city of Bristol at M Shed Museum. UWE Bristol have teamed up with the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council to organise this evening, where you can mingle with fellow students.

Expect great performances from UWE Bristol and the University of Bristol, playing music, delicious food, drinks and a welcoming atmosphere. It will be a fantastic opportunity to meet students and make friends. Feel free to invite other new international students and spread the word.  There will be free coaches from Frenchay Campus on the day.

For helpful information on what to do before you arrive see our new international students section.
