Pre-arrival and arrival information

We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Exeter.  Please read the information below carefully.

  1. Read your pre-arrival support emails. Students joining in September will receive approximately one per month from July onwards. Students joining in January will receive two before Christmas, from early November onwards.
  2. Visit the International Student Support webpages - the 'before you arrive' and 'when you arrive' pages will answer many of your questions and it is here that you will find the International Welcome Programme. Remember to book your 'meet and greet' airport collection service (if applicable) and take advantage of the Global Chums Mentoring Scheme (where available).
  3. The Orientation Programme for each campus includes Welcome Talks and information sessions. These provide essential information about your academic studies and the support available to you. There are also opportunities for you to make changes to your modules if required. See 'module allocation' below for dates and times.

Arrangements are subject to the evolving response to COVID-19.
