Applications from current INTO students
All applications from current INTO students are managed by the team in our International Liaison Office – Chloe Sharpe (Assistant Director - INTO Liaison) and Katrina Macneill (International Liaison Assistant), working very closely with a dedicated team within the University Admissions Office. We hope that you find the information below helpful. However if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Once students arrive at INTO to start their Foundation, Diploma, or Graduate Diploma programme, our International Liaison Office (ILO), will assist them with their application for progression to the University of Exeter. Special "fast track" application procedures have been developed for these students, so please DO NOT submit UCAS or postgraduate applications for any students joining an INTO programme. These are handled internally in the Centre, post arrival.
All INTO programme students will attend a number of progression workshops throughout the year to ensure they receive the support they need to make informed and timely decisions. These will include;
Welcome Workshop: An introduction to the University of Exeter and INTO Exeter, and advice on available support.
Application Workshops: These are primarily technical sessions, we provide students with step-by-step instructions in submitting a UCAS application
College Engagement: Throughout their time at INTO Exeter, each student is given the opportunity to visit their academic College/Discipline at the University of Exeter, to meet academic staff, current students, view teaching and research facilities, learn more about the programme to which they have applied and hear about employability/career opportunities, industrial experience and study abroad opportunities
The Next Step Workshop: At these sessions, we provide students with advice on the next necessary steps in their progression journey including accommodation and deposit information, and further details relating to choosing Firm and Insurance choices in UCAS.
The Final Session Workshop: Nearing the end of their INTO programme, we provide a final summary and further advice for their onward progression journey.
Foundation and Diploma progression to Exeter
Foundation and Diploma students are required to submit a full UCAS application through the International Liaison Office, using one choice for an appropriate programme at Exeter. UCAS applications sessions are held in November for Cohort 1 students and in February for Cohort 2 students. Students will be assigned to a session which will be held in computer laboratories on campus to enable students to be guided step by step through the application process. Students will be given assistance writing their Personal Statements in their English classes.
Students are also given advice about managing their applications throughout the year in UCAS Track and making an appropriate insurance choice. Detailed advice is also given to students about making Firm and Insurance choices.
We monitor students UCAS applications throughout the year, although students remain responsible for checking their UCAS applications on 'Track' on a regular basis, replying to offers by the deadlines given, and keeping contact details up to date. Students are NOT allowed to add more than one choice for Exeter - if they wish to change the programme that they applied at Exeter, they must visit the ILO, and complete a change of programme request form. All changes are subject to approval by the Colleges.
Graduate Diploma progression to Exeter
A specific Graduate Diploma fast track application form has been created, meaning students do not need to complete the standard Online Application form. Application sessions are held at the end of the first semester (December for Cohort 1, March for Cohort 2). Documents such as references, transcripts, and certificates are not routinely required for the application.
Application procedures for INTO English Study Students
We find that most students following an INTO English Study programme are intending to progress onto INTO academic programmes or are already holding an offer for a University of Exeter degree programme. Sstudents on the English for Undergraduate, and Postgraduate Study programmes who are interested in applying for University degree programmes directly are welcome to make an appointment with the International Liaison Office to discuss their study plan, qualifications and application, and dedicated assistance is available.
