4.4  INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

For many years we have included students from all parts of the world in our programmes, and we find that they contribute very valuably to the academic life of the Department. In the longer term, they also benefit greatly from the experience of a different way of working and being assessed. But in the earlier stages there can be various problems of adjustment, and if you are in any doubt or difficulty, ask for help from one of your tutors or the International Student Coordinator Felicity Gee F.C.Gee@exeter.ac.uk .  The Study Abroad Administrator (Humanities) can be contacted on humanities-studyabroad@ex.ac.uk.

You may already have received the University’s ‘Information for New International Students’ booklet. This covers information from preparation and arrival in the UK, to accommodation and living costs, language classes, and various support services. If you do not have a copy already, they are available from the International Office in Northcote House. The International Office can also offer help and advice on welfare, immigration, academic issues, and can be a contact point for holidays with British families. Their helpful website is at http://www.exeter.ac.uk/international/

The International Office, on the 8th Floor of the Laver Building deals with queries and problems in ERASMUS/JYA schemes. Contact the Study Abroad Officer (Inbound) Claire Crick (inbound@ex.ac.uk) or the Study Abroad Administrator Isabela Coelho-Knapp on  01392 725739.
