Welcome activities for new postgraduate taught students at Penryn

Important notice: We will be updating this page regularly as new details of induction and welcome activities 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.

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.

Online module selection, where appropriate, will open early-mid September and we will send you more information about this before it opens. 


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 with us.

All students are expected to be on campus by Monday 13 September 2021 at the latest. If there is any reason why you may not be here by this date, please contact us:
