January Orientation

The main January Orientation event will be held on Monday 15th January 2018 for all new Study Abroad, International Exchange and Erasmus students who will be studying with us in Semester Two/Term 2 onwards.

We will also be holding a small-scale, informal pre-orientation event on Friday 12th January to allow students who have travelled a long distance a little extra time to settle into the city before classes start. Booking is required.

The main January Orientation event on both campuses will be held on Monday 15th January 2018. 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.

The programme can be viewed by following the link above.

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!)

12:00 Welcome - please report to the Alumni Auditorium, The Forum
12:45 Campus Tour
13:00 Document Clearance (non EU nationals)
14:00 Q & A with Study Abroad Coordinators in Humanities, Business School and Social Sciences - Alumni Auditorium

Book online here. Booking is restricted to 50 places.

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. If you wish to attend the activities on Friday 12th, you should plan to arrive into Exeter on Thursday 11th or the morning of Friday 12th.

Students are expected to arrive to the University in order to complete orientation on Monday 15th.  If you are staying in university accommodation, you may not be able to move into your accommodation until Sunday 14th January.

Please note that some classes will begin on Monday 15th. Students who have been pre-enrolled onto your modules will be able to check your timetable in advance to see if this applies. Attendance at the orientation sessions are compulsory, however, activities such as campus tours and study skills sessions will be repeated later in the week so you can fit this around your teaching timetable. The orientation schedule will be added to the International Student Support page in due course.

If you are unable to attend orientation on Monday 15th January then you must gain written permission from your College Coordinator.

Study Abroad Coordinator Meetings

All students will be allocated a provisional 'home' College prior to arrival. For Study Abroad and International Exchange students, this is based on where you have requested the majority of your credits. This is the College you must visit first in order to finalise your modules.  For Erasmus students this is the subject area on our Erasmus bilateral agreement with your university.
