What's On

 

Freshers' 2021 is coming soon! Find all your Freshers’ information right here! For Freshers’ updates and events, look no further than AUSA’s official channels - here on our website, Facebook or Instagram

We urge students to be vigilant when purchasing tickets online for Freshers’ events which have not been advertised or endorsed by AUSA or the University of Aberdeen.  There are a lot of events out there that claim to be ‘official events’ that are not linked to the university or AUSA in any way.  Although they may look like a lot of fun, before purchasing any tickets please be vigilant. Find out more about what to look out for here.
