New Medical Imaging students

New students

Welcome to Medical Imaging (Diagnostic Radiography) at the University of Exeter.

During Welcome Week you will have plenty of opportunities to meet your fellow students, personal tutors and many of the teaching staff on your programmes too. As well as the fun stuff offered by the Students' Guild through the Information Fair (such as taster sessions for various societies and sports clubs for example) you will also be attending timetabled welcome/induction sessions for your programme, which will help you to understand  what to expect as a student at Exeter.  Before you arrive in Exeter, you will be invited to join a MOOC (a Massive Online Open Course) which will allow us all to begin to get to know one another.

Induction week timetable

Information about academic induction events for Welcome Week will be available soon on the Exeter Learning Environment (ELE) Medical Imaging page.

We will be updating this page regularly as new details of induction and welcome activities are released. Please ensure you check back here frequently for updates.

If you have any questions about your induction or starting your studies, then the Info points are the place to go for any questions you may have about your life as an Exeter student. Ours is Info at St Luke's; you can contact them on Tel: +44 (0)1392 724837 or Email:

We look forward to welcoming you!
