SU Freshers' Fayre

 
 

Date: Wednesday 25th September
Main Time: 11:00pm - 5:00pm
Quiet Time: 10:30am - 11:00am
(No music, less people, for our students who prefer a more chilled Fayre experience.)
Where: NIAC on Cyncoed Campus

 

The Cardiff Met SU Freshers’ Fayre is a rite of passage for every new attendee of Cardiff Met! Taking place on Wednesday 25th September within NIAC on the Cyncoed Campus it is certainly one of the most popular events on the Fresher’s Calendar!

It will be your first chance to meet with all first year and returning students attending Cardiff Met and the perfect opportunity to find out about all that your Students’ Union and University has to offer!

Our Freshers’ Fayre is the best way for you to discover all of the amazing SU Sport clubs & SU Societies that you can join, as well as loads more opportunities we have available for you!

Then of course there are the freebies – loads of freebies! With firm favourites such as Domino‘s Pizza attending, you can guarantee you’re going to leave the fayre with your pockets and stomachs full of goodies and plenty of savings for the year ahead!

 

 
 
 
 
 

Your Students' Union

 
 

We are Cardiff Met SU and so are you! As a Cardiff Met student, you automatically become a member of the Students’ Union (SU) so you have full access to everything we have to offer. Our aim is to represent your views and provide you with lots of opportunities to make the most of your time at Cardiff Met.

You are at the heart of everything we do, from telling us what you want us to do for you through our SU Representation structure or becoming a becoming a SU Rep for your course, to joining a SU Society or SU Sport club. From completing the Cardiff Met Award to joining a volunteering project. From attending our events such as Varsity, Campus Canines, pub quizzes and much more, we believe that there is something for everyone here at the SU.

Keep an eye out later in the summer for your Essential Freshers’ Guide which will give you even more information on life at Cardiff Met and how to get involved in your Students’ Union, including the Freshers’ Fayre in September.

We want you to have the best student experience possible here at Cardiff Met, because we are Cardiff Met SU and so are you!
