Exchange Students January 2017 Induction and Enrolment Information
Induction and Enrolment will help you understand how the Exchange Programme works, and find out information about the modules you will be studying.
You will meet academic and support staff, who'll be important to you during your study. As the Exchange Programme is part of the Joint Honours, they will be available to continue supporting you during your time with us if you need any extra advice.
You'll have the chance to find your way around the University so that you will be ready for the start of teaching on Wednesday 11 January 2017.
So what's going to happen during Induction and Enrolment?
Here is a '5 Steps' guide to the sessions you will attend on Wednesday 11 January 2017 at the Kedleston Road site and what will happen in them.
Step 1 - International Welcome and Induction
Our 'Welcome to the University' event for International Students begin at 9am on Wednesday 11 January 2017, in lecture Theatre OL1 at the Kedleston Road site.
This includes an introduction to the international Student Centre (ISC), the chaplaincy, the students Union (UDSU), Barclays Bank and the Park Medical Practice. There will also be some important document checks. The tours of Derby City will be available throughout the week.
Step 2 - Your Welcome Session
You need to come along to the Welcome Session being held at 2pm in room N412.
At the Welcome Session members of our Joint Honours and Exchange team will give you information about what studying at Derby will mean to you. You will also get a chance to meet staff who are here to help you whilst you are studying at the University.
Step 3 - Module Selection and Programme Advice
Following the Welcome Session you will be able to talk to joint honours advisers about your module choices. They will help you fill out a Module Selection Form and sign it for you to take to Enrolment. You may have already filled out a similar form at your home university, if so then we will have a copy of this available at the session for reference. We will also help you fill out your individual timetable.
Staff from the Student Centre team who look after the administration for the Exchange Programme will be there to help you too. We are specially trained to help Exchange students with their studies, and are the best people to see about anything you don't understand. We're based in the Student Centre in the Atrium at Kedleston Road.
Step 4 - Enrolment and Confirmation of Enrolment
When you have chosen your modules, you will be able to take your signed module selection forms to Enrolment in the Library. Don't worry, we will show you how to get there.
When you arrive at Enrolment, you will be given your user name and password so that you can log onto a computer. We want you to:
- check and update your contact details (address, phone number etc)
- enrol onto your modules using the module selection form you filled in with the joint honours advisers
There will be staff available in the Library to help you.
After you have enrolled, you will need to see someone for Confirmation of Enrolment, still in the Library. This is an important part of the process. At Confirmation of Enrolment, we check that your module enrolments are right and that you are registered on the correct programme.
At the same time, we will also take a digital photograph for your Student ID card. This will have your Student Number on it and will give you access to the library and learning resources.
Step 5 - Teaching starts from Monday 16 January!
You'll be able to look up the timetabled teaching times and locations for your modules on our student portal UDo. You'll get instructions on how to do this when you confirm your enrolment.
Remember to carry your ID card around with you at all times, you'll need it to access some parts of the university, for taking out books from the library, and to Tap In to register your attendance in class.
