During Registration Week
During Registration Week you are required to:
Attend the preliminary meeting of the first year core module ESPS1001 (if you have selected this module) on Wednesday 26 September at 14:00 in Roberts Building 508.
Attend registration sessions in the departments of your chosen modules. You will visit the departments of your chosen subjects to familiarise yourself with their locations and to find out where the teaching will take place, and if there is a reading list or other set of instructions to be noted before teaching begins. Remember to check your obligations with the departments of your chosen subjects.
Attend a module registration session where you will be shown how to register your modules on Portico. These drop-in sessions will take place daily during Registration Week in the Jeremy Bentham Room, North Cloisters. Instructions for registering your modules on Portico can be found here. If you experience any problems in connection with module registration, please email Jenny with the relevant module codes, not the module titles.
Check that your timetable is clash-free, using the UCL Common Timetable. The UCL Common Timetable displays your personal timetable week by week, and lets you find out what is being taught, when, where and by whom across UCL.
You are also strongly encouraged to attend the following non-academic meetings:
The joint ESPS and Philosophy Department party on Wednesday 26 September at 16:30 on the Portico Steps, Front Quad. This is where new students and those in different year groups first get to know one another.
In addition to your year group's individual Welcome Meeting on 20 September, a General ESPS Welcome Meeting for all year groups will be held on Wednesday 26 September at 14:30, in Roberts Building 508. This will involve talks from UCL's Voluntary Service Unit and UCL Careers Service as well as talks from students in other year groups and from ESPS graduates.
The ESPS Affiliate Tutor, Dean Machin, will be available on Monday 24 September between 12:00 and 13:00 if you have any concerns or questions.
