Welcome to all new postgraduate students

We're currently planning our Induction Week activities from 14 September to welcome you to the University of Exeter, so the information provided here will be changing as new details are released. We're also working within Government guidelines meaning information and activities may change as that guidance changes as well. Please ensure you check back here frequently for updates, as well as your personal email account, new University of Exeter email account, and your My Timetable for the most up-to date information from us. Please note you must have registered with the University and activated your IT account to access My Timetable.

If you have any questions about your induction or starting your studies, please contact your Hub: 

Phone: 01392 724837

Hubs are open Monday to Friday (term time) 9.00am to 5.00pm (UK time).

Information about things you'll need to do before arriving at Exeter can be found on our New Students website.

This schedule may be subject to change – always check your personal timetable online for the latest information.
Last updated: 2nd September.

Induction module

We have created an induction module for you within ELE (Exeter Learning Environment). ELE is our virtual learning environment and enables you to access course materials and use tools such as discussion forums and learning logs to interact online. Please note you must have registered with the University and activated your IT account in order to access ELE. 

Your first term officially starts on Monday 12 October. We will be providing you with online Fresher’s Week information commencing October 5, which will include a variety of social and academic sessions  to help prepare you for the start of term. You can also access the University's New Students’ Guide at any time prior to that.


What if I need to study remotely in term 1?

You can apply to study remotely this term. It is a simple process which is detailed on our Coronavirus information pages. (navigate to the ‘Planning for the next academic year’ section of that website and select ‘Can I study remotely in 2020/21?’).

If you have any further questions, worries or concerns you can get in touch with us at or on +44 (0)1392 724837

Welcome to the Department of Education

We would like to extend a very warm welcome to all of our new students joining the Graduate School of Education (GSE) this term.

You are joining a lively, friendly and committed community of education scholars based on the St Luke’s campus and we very much hope that you will feel able to take full advantage of the opportunities this affords you. As well as fully benefiting from the more formal aspects of your programmes of study do try to join in with the various teaching and research focused events, whether online or face to face, organised by academic staff members and your fellow students. Don’t forget that many of your teachers are leading scholars in their fields of study and they will be looking to you to join with them in challenging and advancing existing practices, thinking and orthodoxies in the field of education.

We very much look forward to meeting you and hope that you have a rewarding and enjoyable experience during your time here.  

Professor David Hall
Head of Department
