Orientation for overseas students

By Dr Taoxin Peng 

Abstract

Students from overseas sometimes find the style of teaching and learning in UK universities unfamiliar at first, so we organise a special introductory Orientation Programme, which is designed to help overseas students settle in to the School of Computing, Napier University and Edinburgh itself. The objectives of the programme are to provide new overseas students to • meet the Head of School, course leaders and lecturers, • meet other international students, • matriculate early and have access to University facilities such as Computing and Libraries, • be given an introduction to Higher Education in the UK and how it may differ from what you are used to, • be given an introduction to library resources at Napier, • learn about Scotland and Edinburgh, • make any necessary banking, police registration, medical and other arrangements, • take part in social events, such as Group Presentation, Treasure Hunt.
