January Orientation

The main January orientation event will be held on Monday 14th January 2019 for all new Study Abroad, International Exchange and Erasmus students who will be studying with us in Semester Two/Term 2 onwards.

At the Streatham Campus, Exeter, we will also be holding a small-scale, informal pre-orientation event on Friday 11th January to allow students who have travelled a long distance a little extra time to settle into the city before classes start. Students who undertake the orientation sessions on Friday (such as a campus tour, International Stuent Clearance) do not need to repeat the same activity on Monday.

Booking is required - details to follow soon.

The main January orientation event on both campuses will be held on Monday 14th January 2019. It is very important that you attend this one day programme, as you will be given information about the University, the support available, and you will meet your college Study Abroad Coordinator to finalise your modules.

More information coming soon.

Arriving into a new university on Sunday to orientate into the university and sometimes even begin your classes the very next day can be difficult (especially if you are suffering from jet-lag!)

Following the success of our pre-orientation event last year, we will be holding this small-scale pre-orientation event again on Friday 11th January 2019 to allow students some extra time to settle into the city over the weekend period.

Timings and further information coming soon - if you wish to attend the activities on Friday 11th you should plan to arrive into Exeter on Thursday 10th.

Please note: students attending this event will be responsible for sourcing your own short-term accommodation in the private sector until your university accommodation contract (if applicable) begins. 

Information is also provided on the University Accomodation webpages

Pre-arrival information

Further details to help you to prepare for your exchange programme at the University at Exeter can be found on the International Student Support pages.  These pages will tell you what you need to do before you arrive and what will happen when you arrive.

Students are expected to arrive at the University in time to undertake orientation and teaching on Monday. If you are staying in university accommodation, you may not be able to move into your accommodation until Sunday.

Please note that the teaching term is scheduled to begin on Monday. Students who have been pre-enrolled onto modules will be able to check your timetable in advance to see if this applies.

Your attendance is compulsory at the orientation sessions. However, activities such as campus tours and study skills sessions will be repeated later in the week so that you can mor eeasily fit this around your teaching timetable. Alternatively, you may wish to consider attending the pre-orientation session on Friday to undertake some of these activities in advance.

The orientation schedule will be added to the International Student Support page in due course.

If you plan to arrive to the university after the start of teaching you must gain written permission. Please contact inbound@exeter.ac.uk
