Freshers returns to ITV2



Following the success of the first series, a second run of Freshers is set for ITV2. The new six-part series from Mentorn Media will see what student life is really like at Swansea University, which was voted University of the Year 2014.
Focusing on six new students from across the country we’ll delve into the world of the freshers at the coastal uni. There will be plenty of fun and socialising as they work out how to fit in, whilst carving out their own identity, coping in an entirely new environment, and of course the reality of actually having to study. It can be a daunting experience as the freshers leave home for the first time and have to learn to look after themselves.
From the unparalleled highs to the unexpected lows, Freshers will explore the daunting reality of university and just how hard it can be out there in the big wide world.
The first episode in the run will see us catch up with all the freshers from the first series, students at Bedfordshire University. From loveable Forrest to daddy’s girl Bayleigh, we’ll see how life has changed since we last saw them. 
Kate Maddigan, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment ITV said: “Moving out from home can be a really daunting experience so it will be interesting to see how this year’s students at Swansea University get on as they learn how to stand on their own two feet.”
Tayte Simpson, Director of Factual at Mentorn said, “It was a real joy to film with the freshers last year and see how their lives at uni developed. We’re very excited this year to be in Swansea, it’s a uni with a great reputation and in a unique setting right on the beach.”
Commissioned by Kate Maddigan, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment at ITV the six-hour long programmes will air later in 2014.
