Welcome Week and Academic Induction

Welcome Week

As a postgraduate you'll almost certainly be familiar with the idea of a Welcome Week (also referred to as Freshers' Week) - but it's not just for undergraduates. Even if you completed your undergraduate degree recently you will still need to adjust to a new programme - possibly new tutors - and a new social group.

Welcome Week for Autumn 2017 runs from Monday 18 to Sunday 24 September 2017. Arrivals weekend is therefore Friday 15 - Sunday 17 September.

Welcome Week comprises:

  • University-wide events (for example, information about services to support you as a student - these often run multiple times so you can select one at a time that works for you)
  • Social events

You will be able to see the entire Welcome Week timetable from the beginning of September in iExeter but you will need to activate your IT account first. Please see the main University webpages for new students for details of what to do before you arrive which provides further information about this process.

Academic Induction

These activities are key sessions for you to attend during the first week of term (the week commencing Monday 25 September), so you should make sure you are aware of these.
