You are an 'undergraduate student' if you are coming to study at UCL on a full-time, three or four year programme at undergraduate level.
The International Student Orientation Programme (ISOP) will take place in the week commencing Monday 17 September 2018. During ISOP you will have the opportunity to complete your in-person enrolment, attend the 'We Are All Global' talks designed specifically for our new international students (both EU and overseas), and participate in a variety of social events organised by Students' Union UCL.
ISOP is a busy few days and you may decide you don't want to attend all of the social events – this is your choice and, although you are encouraged to attend, these are optional. It is however important that you attend the 'We Are All Global' talks on Wednesday 19 September and your enrolment appointment on Thursday 20 September.
‘We Are All Global’ – Wednesday 19 September 2018
This full day of talks, organised by the International Student Support team, is designed to help make the transition into life in the UK and studying at UCL as smooth as possible. There will be a number of interactive sessions which will be scheduled throughout the whole day and you will be able to register for these nearer the time as part of the pre-enrolment process. The sessions are free of charge and it is highly recommended that you attend.
Enrolment – Thursday 20 September 2018 (by appointment)
Enrolment for you will take place on Thursday 20 September. You will be required to enrol in person by appointment and you will be able to select a slot nearer the time as part of the pre-enrolment process.
Social events organised by Students' Union UCL
ISOP social events, organised by Students' Union UCL, 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. Full details will be available on the Students' Union UCL website closer to the time, including information on how to book tickets.
Students on a Tier 4 visa
You will need to collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) before you attend your in-person enrolment appointment. It is recommended that you arrive at UCL at least the day before the 'We Are All Global' talks to ensure you have sufficient time to collect your BRP. You will be contacted by email with further instructions on how and where you can collect your BRP nearer the time.
Accommodation during ISOP
If you are staying in UCL managed accommodation and you would like to attend ISOP, you will need to submit an Early Arrival Request on the accommodation portal to arrive from 15 September 2018. If you are staying in other student halls you should follow the information provided to request an earlier move in date if possible.
