Welcome activities for new postgraduate taught students at Streatham

We hope you are looking forward to commencing your studies on a taught Masters with us this September. To help you settle into the university and prepare you for your studies we have arranged welcome and academic induction activities for you during Freshers' Week.

Choosing your modules using the Online Module Selection System

First you will need to register with the University and activate your University IT account. To find out how to do this use the links in the tabs below for the 'Before you arrive' section of the New Students’ website. Once you have activated your University IT account you will have access to iExeter, the student portal. You should find the Online Module Selection System by clicking on the 'Student Record' tab and then by following the instructions.

For some programmes where your first year of study includes either optional modules and/or the need to select between specific core modules, you must make your Year 1 module choice between Wednesday 28 August and Friday 13 September using the Online Module Selection System. After Friday 13 September module availability may be restricted within your discipline/s. Please contact us if, for any reason, you have not been able to make your module choices by this date.

 

All new taught Masters students are required to attend the subject welcome sessions, even if you are progressing from undergraduate study at Exeter. Our welcome sessions are designed to provide you with essential information on studying a taught Masters degree with us.

All students are expected to be on campus by Monday 16 September 2019 at the latest. If there is any reason why you may not be here by this date, please get in contact with us as soon as possible.
