As first year students, a lot of you are leaving home for the first time, some of you even moving to England from overseas to study. As returning students, you might like to try a new hobby or take an exciting trip away to ease yourself back into University life, before getting stuck back into your studies.

We know many of you will move to Huddersfield in advance of Freshers’ week, to get to know the area and get settled in. There are plenty of places to explore and things to do, to give you a helping hand we’re running the first of our 2017/18 Give It A Go Weeks 11th – 17th September.

Our Give It A Go programme gives you the chance to take a taster session of an activity, sports club, society or even day trip to a UK attraction. Our aim is to give you a fun experience and, especially with the taster sessions, help you decide whether it’s an activity or hobby you’d like to pursue further. It is also a great opportunity to see some of the great things that Huddersfield, the surrounding areas and the UK as a whole have to offer as well as meet new people!

We have several Give It A Go weeks a year and also run numerous events outside of these weeks so don’t worry if you can’t make it this time.
