When you arrive

  • Confirm your safe arrival with your family and the Go Abroad office in Dundee.
  • Attend any orientation programmes offered by your host institution – this is really important so you can obtain all of the relevant information you need a new exchange student and also gives you the opportunity to make new friends and get involved in activities.
  • Follow the host institution’s procedures for registration/matriculation – remember they may be different from Dundee’s!
  • Get local safety and security advice and follow any instructions given by your host institution.
  • Check with your host institution about medical facilities and registering with a doctor.
  • Enrol for your courses and return your Learning Agreement
  • Remember if you need to change any of your course choices you must get approval in writing (email) from your Academic Exchange Co-ordinator in Dundee.
  • All semester 1 and full year exchange students still need to matriculate with Dundee as continuing students.
