January Orientation: 16 January 2017

Our January Orientation will be held on Monday 16 January 2017 and subsequent evenings. We try to cram as many orientation activities as possible in a short space of time to allow you to get into your programmes of study quickly. However, we are always on hand to answer questions. 

Freshers' Week: 16-24 September 2017

‌Our main orientation programme for new students who will start their studies in September is called Freshers' Week. Freshers' Week 2017 will be held 16-24 September 2017, immediately before term starts. We recommend you arrive on either 16 or 17 September to the Exeter campuses or on 14 September to the Penryn or Truro campus to prepare for the week.

There are lots of things for you to do during Freshers' Week that you need to for the University, some in your College, some that we think you will find useful and some that are just fun! And don't worry - our Welcome Team in bright pink t-shirts are there to help you every step of the way. All the international sessions are listed in the Events Guide, online and on the app and run alongside the other events during Freshers' Week.‌

Information prior to arrival

You will receive 4 pre arrival support emails over the summer (June, July, August September) with tips on things you should be doing and thinking about. If you apply later in the cycle these emails might come closer together. Please keep looking at your emails and make sure these do not go into your junk folder!

  • You will receive a Welcome email from our Admissions department shortly after your place is confirmed with important registration information. This may include information for your visa application. 
  • You will receive an email from your College about your studies and your academic induction activities during Freshers' Week. 
  • Visit the New Students Website which will tell you what you need to do 'Before you arrive' and 'When you arrive' at university.

 The International Welcome Programmes will be available in early summer 2017. 

Arrivals at the University Exeter after 24 September 2017

In an ideal world everyone would arrive at the start of Freshers' Week but sometime this isn't possible. As soon as you know you would like to arrive late you must get written permission to do so from the Admissions Office. If you do not do this you may not be able to register with the University.   

If you arrive at the University Exeter after Freshers' Week please read Exeter New Students Late Arrivals Guide or Cornwall New Students Late Arrivals Guide and attend a Late Arrivals Meeting (no need to book). More information for students is available on the New Students website.

Late Arrivals Meetings 2017 - Streatham Campus (to be arranged)

Late Arrivals Meetings 2016 – Penryn Campus, Cornwall (to be arranged)

If you are late arriving to the Penryn campus please go to the Student Information Desk in the Peter Lanyon Building where we can help you register.
