International Student Support


International Student Orientation Programme September 2016

The International Student Support team organise the International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) to help make the transition into life in the UK and studying at UCL as smooth as possible. ISOP is for all non-UK students who are starting their studies at UCL this September.

The International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) and early enrolment will be scheduled the week beginning 19 September 2016. The exact dates depend on your type of study so please refer to the relevant link below depending on whether you are an affiliate, undergraduate or graduate student. Although ISOP is optional, it is free of charge and is highly recommended.

For UCL managed halls and student houses, once you have accepted your offer of accommodation online, you can submit an Early Arrival Request to arrive from 17 September 2016.

Please also refer to the information in our before you arrive section. We look forward to welcoming you to UCL!
