International Student Orientation Programme

Information about UCL's orientation programme for new international undergraduate, affiliate and graduate students. The September 2019 programme will take place during the week commencing Monday 16 September 2019, and is tailored to level of study.

To help make the transition into life in the UK and studying at UCL as smooth as possible, the International Student Support team organises the International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) before the start of the academic term for all non-UK students starting their studies at UCL. ISOP activities will take place during the week beginning Monday 16 September 2019, and are tailored to level of study; check the schedule section for more detailed information and dates.

The International Student Orientation Programme is optional, however, it is highly recommended and free of charge. Students eligible to attend ISOP can register their interest as part of the pre-enrolment process, which will be available from mid-August.

More information about pre-enrolment can be found on the new students webpages. 

If you are staying in UCL managed accommodation and you would like to attend ISOP, you can submit an Early Arrival Request on the accommodation portal if needed. 

For more information about moving in to UCL halls of residence, please visit the UCL Accommodation website.
