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 2018 runs from Monday 17 to Sunday 23 September 2018. Arrivals weekend is therefore Friday 14 - Sunday 16 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 24 September), so you should make sure you are aware of these.

This schedule may be subject to change – always check your personal timetable online for the latest information, and your student email for any important notifications.
