The Discovery Series

The Discovery Series is designed to bring an experience of a range of university courses to the classroom, and help students gain an understanding of the skills, practice and opportunities involved in studying that subject – especially for subjects that are not taught at school. 

The sessions will bring the subject to life by giving participants exclusive access to cutting edge research and interactive activities not available through any other route.

Led by staff and students from the discipline, the Discovery Series consists of 1 visit per school term with a small group of students identified by you; the first two taking place in school, and the third inviting students and staff onto a University of Exeter campus for a special finale, and taste of real university life and study.  

Key points to be aware of with the Discover Series - 

  • Due to limited resource we will only be able to offer the Series in schools who fulfil certain eligibility cirteria, to include being part of the Exeter Links partnership.  If you are not sure if this applies to your school then we would encourage you to contact us to discuss
  • The campus on which the series finale will be held is dependant on the subject booked
  • In some cases dates for all 3 sessions will be set in partnership with the school but for others the on campus date will be set to allow attendance at other exclusive events and conferences participants can benefit from.  Further details will be confirmed at the point of enquiring
  • For schools based outside of Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Dorset & Bristol who may not be able to travel for the third on campus session we would be willing to dicuss alternative options for delivery of this content 
  • Group sizes vary across the subject strands and can be set in discussion with the school
  • It is anticipated the the group taking part in a Discovery Series should be the same students for each of the 3 sessions
