Freshers’ Weeks can be infamous for their heavy drinking but the latest crop of students at Arts University Bournemouth are more likely to have been worn out from sporting endeavours than hangovers

In a bid to create a more “inclusive and enjoyable atmosphere” for its newest intake of creatives, Arts University Bournemouth’s Students’ Union (AUBSU) has provided a wide range of events where alcohol has been completely absent.

The Alcohol-Free Freshers’ Fortnight featured a climbing wall, table tennis, watersports, inflatable assault courses, a tour of the Jurassic Coast and ceramics workshops to name just a few.

There has also been the chance to learn the basics of screenprinting or create your own eco bodycare products.
