Lampeter Student Experience Weekend

Lampeter Humanities Group

The Faculty of Humanities would like to invite you to a Student Experience Weekend on the Lampeter campus, where you can immerse yourself in the student experience. The Student Experience Weekend is an optional, free, event we offer all of our applicants. It is an opportunity to come to the Lampeter campus, meet fellow applicants and current students, as well as experience the academic and social aspects of student life.

The Lampeter Student Experience Weekend will be held on the 22 - 24 February and the 22-24 March 2019. The event starts at on Friday afternoon and will finish on Sunday morning. You will stay both nights in a hall of residence, and all meals will be catered for.


We have found students really enjoy this opportunity to come and experience university life, and feel excited and better prepared to start studying with us in September.

I thought the weekend was really helpful when I was choosing which uni to come to... I stayed in contact with quite a few people I met on the weekend and a couple of existing students, who were really helpful with my questions just before I came.”
Lucy Owens (first-year student in BA Archaeology with Ancient Egyptian Culture)
