International Student Orientation Programme

Information about UCL's orientation programme for new affiliate, undergraduate and graduate students.

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 starting their studies at UCL in September 2018.

The International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) is scheduled to take place the week commencing 17 September 2018. Although ISOP is optional, it is free of charge and is highly recommended. 

Students eligible to attend ISOP can register their interest as part of pre-enrolment. Emails inviting students to pre-enrol will be sent during early September for undergraduates and late August for postgraduates.

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 15 September 2018.
