International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) for Graduate Students – January 2017
The International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) will take place between Wednesday 4 - Friday 6 January 2017.
During ISOP you will have the opportunity to complete your in-person
enrolment, attend 'We Are All Global,' a full day of talks
specifically for our new international students, (both EU and overseas),
and participate in a
variety of social events organised by UCL Student Union (UCLU).
‘We Are All Global’ talks
ISOP talks, called 'We Are All Global', are organised by the International Student Support team in order to make the transition into life in the UK and studying at UCL as smooth as possible. There will be a number of interactive sessions and you will be able to register for these nearer the time as part of the pre-enrolment process. On completion of pre-enrolment you will receive an email confirming your full ISOP schedule. The sessions are free of charge and it is highly recommended that you attend.
Enrolment (by appointment)
You will be required to enrol by appointment at UCL and you

Social events organised by UCL Student Union (UCLU)
ISOP social events,
organised by UCLU, are the perfect opportunity to meet other new
international students and immerse yourself into life at UCL. Social
events are an optional part of ISOP, however we would encourage you to
attend at least some of these events. A full list of events will be available nearer the time.
If you are staying in UCL managed student accommodation you will be able to access your accommodation from Tuesday 3 January 2017.
