Refreshers Fair - Thursday 8th February 2018

This year's SUBU Refreshers Fair is taking place on Thursday 8th February 2018 from 10am - 3pm. It's going to be bigger and better than ever and will really kick start the second Semester at BU !


What is Refreshers Fair?

The SUBU Refreshers Fair is an exhibition taking over the entire FIVE floors of the Student Centre, The Atrium and the Talbot Courtyard, best of all it is free to attend.  Included in the Fair are over 100 SUBU Clubs & Societies, BU Sports teams, local and BU groups together with local and national businesses keen to connect with BU and AUB students!

It is a great chance for you in just a few hours to meet loads of SUBU Clubs and Societies that you've been meaning to talk to, BU Sports teams looking for new talent and find out a bit more about the volunteering and fundraising opportunities that are available to you to take part in alongside your studies.


SUBU's Freshers' Fairs are the best in the country - it's official!

BAM Marketing Agency toured 20 Freshers’ Fairs across the UK from Scotland to the South coast, surveying thousands of students and hundreds of stallholders to compile the most detailed research forming a Top 20 Freshers’ Fairs in the country.  SUBU are proud to come top of this list for two years in succession with a staggering 98% positive feedback from exhibitors and students. SUBU were measured against some other great Student Unions and Universities across the country so represents a great achievement. The full list of the results from other Freshers’ Fairs and survey highlighted results can be viewed by clicking the logo below..
