Student support

Student support

We are committed to supporting students from all walks of life to succeed during their studies at Exeter. We know that many groups face additional challenges in accessing Higher Education. We therefore provide a package of ongoing support in terms of financial advice and assistance including bursaries, access to accommodation including year round, peer support and help with wellbeing. 

Mature students

The term ‘mature student’ applies to anyone age 21 or over who didn’t go straight to university after leaving school or college. 

Care leavers

We continue to work with young people, carers, foster families, social services, virtual schools and other organisations to support progression to the University.

Estranged students

The University has proudly taken the Stand Alone Pledge which will help provide support for estranged students.

Asylum seekers and refugees

The University of Exeter is proud to welcome asylum seekers and refugees to study at all levels.

Student groups

The university supports equality and diversity.


The University of Exeter is proud to welcome all students to its campuses, and is committed to supporting its LGBTQ+ community.

Faith and religion

We welcome staff, students and visitors from all faith backgrounds, as well as those from none.
