The Exeter Award will help you stand out from the crowd and give you the confidence to shout about the experiences you've had at university

The Exeter Award is an achievement award for current undergraduate and taught postgraduate students at the University of Exeter. When you graduate, you'll be in the company of approximately 280,000 others nationally who will also be looking for their ideal graduate role.

  • Enhance your employability and boost your CV
  • Give you recognition from the University of Exeter for the activities you are participating in outside of your studies
  • Develop a range of skills to take forward into the world of work 
  • Demonstrate to employers the skills and attributes that Exeter graduates have.
