Telephones

Shop opening times

A local phone call costs 30p or more. All phone calls are cheaper after 6pm and at the weekend. Nearly all calls can be dialled and it is expensive to use the operator. Most pay phones now use cards rather than coins and phone cards can be bought at post offices and newsagents. It is cheaper to use a phone card from an independent phone company when you want to phone abroad. These are available from shops around Sidwell Street in the city centre. Alternatively you can purchase a mobile phone for use in the UK during your stay. The best option is a pay as you go phone as you will not be tied down to a long term contract and do not have to provide a deposit. There are shops on the High Street in the city centre for the individual phone companies, such as Vodafone and Orange, and also more general phone shops, such as Carphone Warehouse.

Shops are usually open from 9.00am until 6.00pm from Monday to Saturday. Many shops also open on Sundays from 10.30am until 4.30pm. Some food shops and supermarkets stay open until 10.00pm from Monday to Saturday but close earlier on Sundays.

Food There are shops on campus selling food; see the Food on campus section on page 56 for more details. In the city centre there are Tesco and Sainsbury’s supermarkets where you can buy ingredients and readymade meals.

Stonehenge www.stonehenge.co.uk Stonehenge is a 5,000 year old monument, composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. Such is its importance; the site was added to the UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in 1986. The methods used and the reasons for the construction of Stonehenge are largely unknown and there are many theories about them, often called the “mystery of Stonehenge�. It has been said that it would have taken 30 million man hours to complete. Proposed functions for the site include usage as an astronomical observatory, or as a religious site. Other theories have advanced supernatural or symbolic explanations for the construction. Stonehenge is a place of pilgrimage for people following pagan and nonpagan beliefs, such as neo-druids. It is the location for annual festivals marking the summer and winter solstices.

Salisbury The magnificent medieval city of Salisbury has it all – historic streets and alleyways, charming halftimbered buildings, traditional English eating houses and characterful shopping streets, not to mention a superb range of attractions, including one of the UK’s finest medieval cathedrals.

Salisbury Cathedral The Cathedral was completed in 1258. It contains the best preserved of the four surviving copies of the Magna Carta (the English legal charter of 1215) and the oldest surviving mechanical clock in Britain. The Cathedral is easy to find as its spire is 123 metres tall and is visible from everywhere in the city. The spire can be seen from the inside on

28

a tower tour of the Cathedral. The Cathedral may be most recognisable for being the setting for Hogwarts in Harry Potter, which was written by Exeter Alumnus J.K. Rowling. The surrounding Cathedral close contains historic schools and houses, as well as museums that are worth a visit.

Shopping Salisbury has a mix of well known chain shops and smaller independent shops. On Saturdays it is worth paying a visit to the Charter Market to sample the products that have kept the market going for 800 years. The Salisbury Tourist Information Office is located at Fish Row, Salisbury, SP1 1EJ.

Bath

SATURDAY 4 AUGUST Meet outside Holland Hall at 7.30am – coach to depart at 7.45am. Coach will depart Bath at 4.15pm for travel back to Exeter. www.visitbath.co.uk Bath is a historic city with a population of approximately 85,000 people. The city has been a world heritage site since 1987, recognising its international cultural significance, with 3.8 million tourists visiting the city every year, attracted by museums, theatres and other cultural attractions.

No visit to Bath is complete without a visit to Pulteney Bridge. Designed around 1770 by Robert Adam, the bridge is also a shopping arcade. It is one of only two bridges in Europe that serve this dual purpose, which explains why it is one of the main tourist attractions in Bath.

One of the main attractions is the baths and surrounding temple that were built by the Romans around the only naturally occurring hot springs in the United Kingdom. On a visit to the Roman Baths Museum it is possible to see Roman artefacts and learn more about how the original citizens of Bath lived. You can now sample the restorative waters yourself at the Thermae Bath Spa.

Bath has an excellent reputation as a shopping destination, with shops to suit all tastes and styles. The award-winning Milsom Street is great for designer shopping, Green Park Station Market offers food and arts and crafts products, and the Southgate Centre (Bath’s new covered shopping development) is also worth a visit.

The city has many other museums and theatres, including the Theatre Royal, the Fashion Museum, which tells the story of fashion over the past 400 years, the Bath Postal Museum and the Jane Austen Centre, which tells the story of one of Britain’s most famous authors. The Victoria Art Gallery shows work by artists from the 15th century to the present day. You can also visit Sally Lunn’s Refreshment House for some food in the oldest house in Bath.

32

One of Bath’s most famous sights is the award-winning Royal Crescent, a beautiful collection of 30 residential houses. This reputation has encouraged film producers to include the Royal Crescent in recent films, such as The Duchess.

Coach will depart St Ives at 3.45pm for travel back to Exeter. www.stives-cornwall.co.uk St Ives is an old fishing town and thriving tourist destination set amongst the beautiful sandy beaches and rolling countryside of the Cornish coast. The town is a maze of small streets with a multitude of gift shops, cafés selling the world famous Cornish pasty and art galleries – all situated around a small harbour and headland. There is plenty to do, whether you like shopping, surfing, walking or art.

Beaches On the north coast of St Ives, Porthmeor Beach has a good reputation for surfing and its location is ideal for people also wanting to visit Tate St Ives. Porthgwidden Beach is another option that is located to the east of Porthmeor Beach. Porthminster Beach is to the southeast of St Ives and is the longest beach in the town. For those fancying a longer stroll, a walk along the coast will bring you to the wide expanse of Carbis Bay. There are also dramatic cliff top walks to the west of the town for those of you wanting to explore the wilder side of the Cornish coast. The harbour is a reminder of the fishing industry that the town used to thrive on. The harbour is also the location for the St Ives Lifeboat Station and the eighteenth

34

century Smeatons Pier. Alongside the harbour wall are a variety of shops, restaurants, fish and chip shops and also a small beach. A popular activity is taking an hour’s boat trip to Seal Island 3.5 miles west of St Ives, where you can enjoy undisturbed seal watching. After leaving St Ives harbour, you will round the beautiful rugged Cornish cliffs and secluded coves, heading west to Seal Island. Tickets for the boat trip to Seal Island are purchased from Derek who you will find outside the St Ives Lifeboat Station.

Art St Ives has a rich artistic tradition and there are many art galleries in the town, the most famous of which is the Tate St Ives, a branch of the world famous Tate Gallery in London. The Tate shows 20th century art, as well as changing exhibitions on the best of contemporary Cornish art. There are a number of other galleries in the area including the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, Cornerstone Gallery and the Mozaic Gallery.

Health and safety Accidents In case of any emergency where you require assistance from International Summer School staff from 9am-5pm, Monday - Friday, you should call 01392 722148 or 07580 159718. Out of these hours please call 07583 350682.

Fire alarm procedures Everyone should familiarise themselves with the location of fire alarms, fire extinguishers and the emergency exits of the buildings they are in. There is an alarm notice in each room in Holland Hall which explains the fire procedures.

48

If you discover a fire: • sound the alarm • call the fire brigade (if using an internal phone, dial 9 then 999) • notify Estate Patrol – call 3999 then (or if you hear the fire alarm) • leave the building by the most direct route • close all doors • do not use the lift • lecturers will supervise evacuation of the lecture halls • you will be instructed as to the location of the assembly point • do not return until the Safety Officer tells you.


HEALTH AND SAFETY

Insurance We recommend that you insure your possessions, especially valuable items, such as computers, so that you can replace them in the event of theft. It is also recommended that you choose insurance that covers accidents to be sure that you are protected in the event of an accident.

Crime and personal security Exeter is one of the safest cities in the UK but there are common sense principles you should adhere to: • Do not carry large amounts of cash with you and try to avoid showing your wallet/purse too much in public places. • If possible, go out in groups at night and think about helping other students home. • Only use licensed taxis. The drivers should have their permits showing and a meter on display.

49


ional internat school 2012 summer

Support for students The buddy system There will be a number of student ‘buddies’ attending the social programme of the International Summer School with you. Each buddy will be there to support a group of students. They will be able to help you make the most of your stay in Exeter and you can talk to them if you need urgent advice on any matter – academic, personal or social.

50


International Office staff are also available to support you should you have any questions or problems during your stay. Lucy, Tessa and Richard can be reached at the International Office on 07580 159718 or +44 (0)1392 722148 from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday and they are happy to talk to you about any questions or concerns you have. If you have an emergency out of these hours please call 07583 350682.

SUPPORT FOR STUDENTS

Other support

Data protection policies Students have access to information about them under the University’s Data Protection policies which can be seen at www.admin.exeter.ac.uk/academic/datapro/ Please note: •

We do not disclose information about students to their parents, except in very exceptional circumstances e.g. serious illness.

We do not disclose information about students to outside enquirers.

Every student’s files are treated as confidential, and staff will not disclose their contents to anyone outside the International Office and within the office only on a “need-to-know” basis.

51


ional internat school 2012 summer

If you are ill If illness or personal problems are affecting your time with us, you should contact your buddy or the International Office, who will provide assistance. If you need help obtaining medical treatment, please contact the International Office staff who will be happy to assist. Out of office hours emergency contacts are listed on the back of this booklet. If you are a European Economic Area (EEA) student or Swiss National and you bring a completed E128 from your own national health authority, you will be eligible for treatment for all conditions including pre-existing ones. You must be an EEA resident who is “ordinarily resident� in the EEA for this to apply.

52

If you are not from a country with a reciprocal agreement, you are not entitled to free health care under the National Health Service other than emergency treatment in a hospital casualty department. Health care in the UK can be very expensive. You must therefore take out comprehensive medical insurance before you leave your home country. Please check with your Embassy/High Commission whether you have a reciprocal health agreement. If you are currently taking medicines, please make sure you bring adequate medication for the duration of the International Summer School and ensure that you inform Lucy Thompson before your arrival in the UK.


IF YOU ARE ILL

53


ional internat school 2012 summer

Money and budgeting There is no limit on the amount of money you can bring with you into Britain, but you may need the approval of exchange control in your own country. You should make sure you bring enough money to cover your personal expenses for the duration of the International Summer School. You might consider bringing cash, travellers cheques, a cash card or credit card with you. Please do not carry large amounts of cash with you or keep large amounts of cash in your room. There is a Natwest bank (open: 9-4.30pm, Mon to Fri) and a Santander bank (open: 10-6pm, Mon to Fri) on campus where you can exchange travellers cheques. There are also a number of banks in the centre of Exeter. You will need to check with your own bank whether your credit card or cash card is valid for use in the UK and what charges may apply.

Personal spending You will need some money for personal purchases including drinks, snacks, phone calls and other personal items. You may find that the cost of living in the UK is higher than in your own country. Here is an idea of how much various items cost in the UK (although prices can be higher still in London):

54

Daily newspaper 50p - £1.20

Paperback books £6.00 plus

Magazines £2.00 - £5.00

Cup of coffee £1.00 - £3.00

Cup of tea 80p +

Non-alcoholic drinks £1.00+

Glass of wine £3.00+

Pack of cigarettes (20) £6.43+

The cost of an evening out will vary. There is a wide range of places and prices in Exeter. For example if you go clubbing at the weekend in Exeter you would expect to pay £5.00-£7.00 entry costs.
