Returning Undergraduate Students

Welcome back to the University of Exeter Business School. We hope that you have all had an enjoyable summer, and are now fully prepared for your return to study.

Registering at the University

Usernames, passwords and e-mail addresses for returning students will remain the same as last year. If you have forgotten your password, you will need to have it reset by the IT Help Desk. All full-time returning students studying on campus will register for their University course online using the SRS student record system, via your iExeter portal.

Returning students who have not registered by 5th October 2018 will incur a fine, and will need to contact the Registry Services Team.

For further help, please see the Registration web page.

Module Selection

Online Module Selection for returning students is closed now, and most of you will have selected and confirmed your elective modules earlier in the year.  However, if you need to request a change to your module selection, you can use our new MODULE CHANGE FORM. The form will be available through your Student Handbook from Wednesday 12th September 2018.  

If you have any other problems or questions regarding your modules and need to speak to someone, you can come along to the Info Point in Building One between Monday 24th September and Friday 5th October (8.15am – 5.00pm) and speak to a member of the Education Support Team. However all module change requests must be submitted using the online form by 12pm (midday) on Friday 5th October 2018.


Personal timetables are scheduled to be available from 12 September, but you must have registered with the University to be able to see your timetable.

Lectures start at 8.30am on Monday 24 September 2018.

Please check your personal timetables to see where you are supposed to be once teaching starts. If you have any queries, please just speak to one of the Student Services Assistants at the Information Point in Building One.

Remember, if you miss a class please log into iExeter, and click on the “My Course -> Absence Reporting” option. This takes you to a page showing your timetable and enables you to click on the relevant class or classes and advise us why you are absent. If you are absent for a justifiable reason, such as illness, the absence will be marked as “mitigated”.

Potential employers asking for references will often ask about attendance and unmitigated poor attendance will be disclosed.

In addition, if you are studying in the UK with a Tier 4 visa, unexplained absences will put your visa status at risk.

Tutorial start times and changes

Tutorials do not usually begin until the second week of teaching, but please check your timetables.

Tutorial changes can be requested, but only in exceptional circumstances. You will need to come to the Timetable Clinic in Xfi in the first two weeks of term (look for the signs!). After Friday 5 October, please enquire at the Information Point in Building:One if you have any problems with your timetable. Any changes to sessions MUST be requested via the Education Support Team, as we need to keep track of the numbers of students per room capacity, to avoid overcrowding issues and complaints.

Please don’t attend any teaching sessions that do not appear on your personal timetable. You may be marked as absent and may cause overcrowding issues for others.

Reading lists

Reading lists for compulsory modules will be available here soon.‌

Undergraduate Student Handbook and News ELE Page

Do remember there is an abundance of information available to you from the Education Support Team through your UG Student Handbook and on the ELE site, so please re-visit for advice on your degree, attendance, mitigation, forms, the opportunity for you to give feedback to us and much more.

If you will be arriving at the University after the official registration and inductions sessions, then you will need to get permission by logging an enquiry in SID, or emailing the details to Please include your student number and your programme of study in your email.

And finally….

We hope that this information proves to be useful to you and if, over the next few weeks or months you have any questions, or if you are worried about something or are struggling with anything, please do contact us. Even if we cannot help directly, we can find someone who can. The earlier you contact us, the more effective our help will be.

Please keep checking this page over the summer as we will be updating it as details are confirmed.
