Your academic induction

During Freshers' Week (19-25 September) you will have some scheduled induction meetings to get to know the department.

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. 

Please check your timetable in the iExeter app for the most up-to-date information on times and locations.
