Exeter College Summer Programme FAQs: What to Pack

Travel documents
Don’t forget your passport, Visa Letter, travel insurance, air tickets, address and phone number for the Exeter College Summer Programme! We strongly recommend that you make copies of these documents and keep them separately from the originals.

As part of your immigration clearance to enter the UK you may be asked for additional supporting documents. Please visit our ‘Insurance and Visa Information’ page for more information. If you have an official photo ID, we recommend you bring this with you to use in the UK in place of your passport, which can be kept securely at Cohen Quadrangle.

Electrical Equipment and laptops
If you have a laptop we recommend you bring it with you. You will have Wi-Fi access throughout the College sites at the Cohen Quadrangle and Turl Street. Using internet communication interfaces such as FaceTime is a good and free way to keep in touch with family and friends at home. The College allows reasonable internet bandwidth usage, but restrictions will be imposed if we notice high usage outside the realms of what is deemed acceptable.

All electric and electronic devices including laptops should comply with UK health and safety regulations. Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) will be conducted early in the programme and devices which do not comply with these regulations will be removed and may only be returned at the end of the programme.

UK weather is well known to be unpredictable! We hope for summer sunshine, but we recommend you bring something to keep warm and dry. One essential is a comfortable pair of shoes for sightseeing in Oxford and other UK cities.

Although there isn’t a ‘dress code’ for Formal Dinners, the expectation is that you will be smart and these are occasions for dressing up! Traditionally, cocktail dresses, suits and ties are worn.
