Frequently Asked Questions

Upon arrival in country, are students met at the airport or do students need to find their own way to campus?

For students coming for the first semester or the academic year, there is a Meet and Greet Service organized which student can book on to (there is a charge) and it brings them from Heathrow to campus. This is on the Sunday before Welcome Week. Students can choose to make their own way. For second semester students, they must make their own way. Full details on how to get to Exeter are given on our website and in the International Students’ Handbook which is sent to students.

Once at your university, what can students expect in the way of an orientation?

Do students need to report to your office immediately to check in? For first semester/one year students there is a week long orientation. For second semester students, because there is no break between the semesters, a one day orientation is organized with social events in the week. Students do not need to check in with immediately.

Once on campus, do students need to register for their courses or are they automatically placed in the courses previously submitted on their initial application? If they need to register, what must they do?

First semester/one year students meet with their Schools on Schools day to finalize their module choices and register for them. They are not automatically placed in the courses on their learning agreement. They are given a module registration form and must get each module signed off by the relevant School coordinator (if taking modules in more than one School).
