Events for teachers and advisers

HE Advisers' Day 2019

Each year the University of Exeter hosts two HE Advisers' Days in Exeter and Cornwall. The days provide the opportunity for teachers and careers advisers, who play a vital role in supporting students making progression decisions, to attend a full programme of presentations and workshops focusing on the current higher education environment and the factors affecting progression.

The days are taking place in February 2019 prior to the start of the UCAS exhibitions cycle. There is no charge for attendance at our HE Advisers' Days. Further information about our events in 2019 will be available towards the end of the year.

Presentations from the 2018 HE Advisers' Day are available below.
