Sponsorship and endorsement

Sponsorship and endorsement

Sponsorship is a popular way of increasing awareness of your organisation amongst our students. We also offer the chance to endorse selected schemes that we run.

Our popular and well-established careers fairs attract students across all degree disciplines. These events are widely advertised across our campuses and your organisation name and logo will appear on all marketing materials.

The package includes a stand at the event and colour advert in the fair brochure (with the exception of the International Virtual Careers Fair, for which no brochure is produced).

The Exeter Award is an achievement award designed to enhance students’ employability and provide recognition for activities outside of their studies. The Exeter Leaders Award is our higher level employability award, focusing on leadership and achievement. Completing The Exeter Award is a pre-requisite for registering for the Exeter Leaders Award.

Up to three organisations may sponsor each award for a two year period, with organisation names and logos appearing across all marketing throughout this period. Sponsors of The Exeter Award also attend the celebratory event when a student has completed their Award. Sponsors of the Leaders Award attend the final judging stage to enable students to complete their Award.


Those organisations which work with us regularly are welcome to endorse The Exeter Award. Organisation logos and quotes appear on a dedicated webpage which outlines to students the value of the scheme.

The award winning eXfactor is a discipline specific employability programme delivered to all first year undergraduates. It’s designed to encourage students to think early in their academic careers about the skills and attributes they will need to develop to enter the graduate recruitment market and how these may be assessed in the recruitment and selection process. It also encourages students to think about work experience and volunteer work at the beginning of their university experience.

Sponsorship is for a two year period, with the organisation’s name and logo appearing across all marketing and information material throughout this time. Sponsors also participate in 5 eXfactor sessions per academic year, enabling exposure to a high calibre of future graduates in every discipline and the opportunity to help and inspire future graduates to think about their careers at an early stage.

Sponsorship secured for 2014/15 and 2015/16 by Teach First.

Sprint is the ground-breaking new development programme designed for undergraduate women of all ages, from all backgrounds and stages in their lives and study. Sprint is designed to develop female students to their fullest potential and address study and career issues.

A survey by the Higher Education Careers Unit, measured the earnings of 17,000 recent graduates. They discovered that 70% of women graduates were earning less than £24,000, compared with 55% of men.  And this applied even in subject areas where women's participation was greater than men's, such as Law.

Sprint has been developed to help to close this gap and support women to achieve their aims/aspirations.

Sponsorship details for 2017-18 will be available in due course.  

Our Students’ Guild also provides a range of sponsorship opportunities, from the Freshers’ Ball to Teaching Awards to Sabbatical Elections. To learn more, please click here.
