Film Studies: New students
Welcome message from Professor Fiona Handyside
Many congratulations on securing your place in Film Studies at the University of Exeter. We all look forward to welcoming you in September. During Freshers’ Week, we’ll introduce you to your fellow students, your personal tutor and to the various members of the department who will be teaching and advising you during your time here.
See you in September!
Professor Fiona Handyside
Film Studies Programme Director
Before you get here you'll need to register with the university, activate your university IT account and select optional modules if they are available to you. You will need to have chosen your modules by Friday 13 September 2019 and you will not be able to access your entire timetable until your module choices are confirmed. For more information about the above please use the links at the bottom of this webpage.
Freshers’ Week 2019: Monday 16 September - Sunday 22 September
All students are expected to be on campus by Monday 16 September at the latest.
If there is any reason why you may not be here by this date, please get in contact with the Queens Education Support Office as soon as possible by emailing email@example.com.
During Freshers' Week you should attend the Academic Induction events and activities for your subject/s.
For more information about this please see our 'Joining instructions'.
The purpose of Academic Induction is to introduce you to your academic programme, complete any necessary pre-registration tasks, familiarise yourself with your academic buildings, and meet fellow students and the academic staff for your subjects. These sessions form the core part of your Freshers' Week timetable and we expect all students to be present at these compulsory sessions. If you need any advice about issues or clashes within your Freshers' Week timetable please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

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.
Modules for Combined Honours programmes
For students on Combined Honours programmes, module choice information will be released and co-ordinated by the lead discipline for the programme, that is the first named subject in the degree title. For example, BA Archaeology and Anthropology is led by the Archaeology department; BA Philosophy and Theology is led by the Philosophy department. (Please see the ‘Combined Honours or Flexible Combined Honours Students’ link above for more information).
Modules are available at a range of levels from Beginners to Advanced via the Foreign Language Centre in:
• Mandarin Chinese
• British Sign Language
We can help you get the language you study with us named on your degree title. This involves successfully completing a minimum of 60 credits in one language taken through the Foreign Language Centre. You could choose to start a new language from scratch or develop an existing one. For example, a Geography student who passes 30 credits at Spanish Beginners and a further 30 credits at Spanish Intermediate 1 could have their degree title amended to BA (Hons) Geography with proficiency in Spanish.
If you are not able to take a language as part of your programme due to timetabling constraints, or if you are interested in studying a language that is not currently available via modularity, our Foreign Language Centre also runs an Evening Language Programme with many more language options.
To find out more about language modules and other languages offered by different departments see the Foreign Language Centre pages.
