ISOP for Affiliates

You are an "affiliate student" if you are coming to UCL as a student on a Study Abroad (JYA), Erasmus or other exchange programme at undergraduate level. Only students studying on a three- or four-year programmes are referred to as "undergraduate students". 

ISOP dates

Students attending the International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) will enrol on Friday 19 September 2014. ISOP sessions and events will take place on subsequent days. It is strongly recommended that you attend ISOP as it is designed to provide you with the essential information about studying at UCL and living in London. You will also have the opportunity to enrol when it is quieter than the following week when UK students are also enrolling.

ISOP programme

ISOP will cover a range of seminars and social events which are designed to be very interactive and will give you the opportunity to meet new and current UCL students and ask questions. UCLU will host a variety of social events during ISOP, further information will be available on the UCLU website nearer the time.

ISOP attendance and registration

Attendance is free of charge but you will need to register in advance in order to attend. ISOP registration will open nearer the time.

Accommodation during ISOP

If you have applied for UCL student accommodation and subsequently receive an offer of accommodation, you can request that this is available to you as early as Monday 15th September in order to be able to arrive in the UK in good time and attend ISOP.

You can find further information on the Student Accommodation website or email queries to residences [at]
