The Welcome Fair is open to all students (new and returning) and is your opportunity to come and check out everything that your Students’ Union has to offer, meet lots of our Clubs & Societies and grab some exclusive discounts and freebies from visiting organisations and your Students' Union bars, cafes and shops.
