Freshers 2020

Many of you might be wondering how Freshers will work this year with the restrictions that Coronavirus puts in place. We want you to have the most authentic Freshers experience possible whilst also keeping you safe, so we will be running all of our usual events in person but there are limited capacities and each will be ticketed to ensure your safety, all events will be booked through Eventbrite.

We want to make sure you have the best start to Plymouth College of Art and we want to help you all settle in. Our Student Union Ambassadors will be on hand to help you move into Host halls and will be at all of our events to answer any questions you might have and help you meet people from all areas of the PCA community. We want to be as inclusive as possible so we're planning events to suit everybody, from casual Coffee and Cake events to fun Drink and Draw events. You can find the full details of all events below, along with the links to book them.

See you soon!
