Award themes

Shape your award

The Exeter Award is a flexible programme, which you can shape and adapt to find out about specific industries and career paths or to suit your personal interests.

To help you do this, we've mapped out six example pathways you can use to shape your Award. Several of these are based on the top career destinations cited by University of Exeter students.

There's no need to stick rigidly to a single pathway - you might even find that a 'pick and mix' approach will give you a broader understanding of your prospects!

Additionally, by taking part in Grand Challenges you can acheive your Exeter Award - the programme covers your volunteer hours, and, you can use the Grand Challenges Induction for the skills session elements of the Award. 

If you'd like any further advice on how to shape your Exeter Award towards a particular career or industry, please don't hesitate to get in touch with the Exeter Award team by asking a question in My Career Zone.
