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 can now join our UEBS Induction MOOC: get all the essential information about study and life in the Business School, start getting to know other students, and ask any last minute questions before arrival. Check your Online Module Selection email we sent you for an invitation link.
You will soon be receiving information about your arrival from the University, including details on how to register. Further information can be found on the Information for New Students web page.
Further useful information for postgraduate students can be found on the Postgraduates webpage.
Freshers’ Week runs from Saturday 14th September – Sunday 22nd September 2019. All students are required to be on campus by Monday 16th September. If you cannot be here by this date for unavoidable reasons, please see information for late arrivals below.
Please visit our Freshers’ Week 2019 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.
MSc International Management students: Please see the MSc IM page for details of your induction events.
Choosing your modules*
You will be able to start selecting your module choices for this year online from Thursday 29th August. Instructions on how to do this can be found here: Online Module Choice Guidance (postgraduate). We strongly advise you to complete your module selection by Friday 20th September, to ensure that you get your first choice. Online module registration closes on Friday 27th September.
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.
- Look at the Business School Module Descriptor pages for information about each module. Don’t forget to look at modules offered by other Colleges (see College websites for more information) if you would like to take a subject outside the Business School, such as a foreign language.
- Go to the Online Module Selection page where you will find instructions on how to choose your modules.
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.
If you are an international student you will need to make sure you register with the University promptly on arrival, so that you gain all of your IT access, 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 2019.
