Key dates and pre-arrival information
Before you arrive on campus, there are some important things you need to know. Please read the following carefully:
UEBS Induction MOOC

|You will soon receive information from the University about your arrival, including details on how to register. Further information can be found on the Information for New Students 2018 web page.|
Freshers’ Week runs from Saturday 15th September – Sunday 23rd September 2018. All students are required to be on campus by Monday 17th September. If you cannot be here by this date for unavoidable reasons, please see information for late arrivals below.
Please visit our Freshers’ Week 2018 page for more details. This will be updated over the summer with a printable timetable of events and talks, we will post an update on our Facebook page when this is available.
Choosing Your Modules*
You will be able to start selecting your module choices for this year online from 29th August. Please select the modules that you wish to sign up to as soon as possible. Doing this quickly will give you the widest choice – popular modules fill up very quickly. If you don’t choose your elective modules in good time, the modules you wish to take may be full.
The University of Exeter values the ability for students to have the opportunity for open module choice where academically feasible. However, it may be the case that some module choices may not be compatible for scheduling purposes and students will be asked to re-choose to avoid clashes.
*Please note: Students entering directly into Year Two will not be able to choose their modules online. Please send your module choices in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the words ‘Direct Entry Second Year Modules’ in the subject heading.
If you are an international student you will need to make sure you register with the University promptly on arrival, so that you gain access to all of the IT facilities, to register on your programme and your modules. For more information about your arrival for international students please take a look at the International Students’ Freshers’ Week Programme 2018. Look out for information on our Welcome Talks for International Students, which can be found on our Freshers’ Week 2018 page
You will be emailed by the University of Exeter Business School International Development Team with details of your registration sessions. The International Development Team can be contacted at Business-School-Exchanges@exeter.ac.uk
For those of you that will be studying combined or flexible combined honours programmes, please make sure that you look at the other College’s websites to ensure that you do not miss any important information that is given out by the different Colleges.
For those doing combined Politics degrees you will find an abundance of information available to you on the Politics website, and for those on flexible combined honours programmes please have a look at the website for your lead College so that you are familiar with their arrangements.
