New Students' Guide

Welcome to your first year at Exeter! We developed a guide to help you through your first term and give you a handy checklist of tasks and links to show you everything you’ll need to know. 

» Before you arrive

Essential and advisable tasks for you to complete before you get here plus information for international students.

» When you arrive

Tasks you must complete when you arrive plus information for international students.

» Welcoming you

The week before term starts is known as Freshers’ Week or Welcome Week. It will be running from 13 – 18 September. It's a chance to learn about all aspects of university life through online and in-person events. Don’t worry if you’re joining later, you can still take part online and there will be lots of support for you when you do join us.
