Open Days and visiting
Discover the University of Exeter
We've put together a suite of virtual and in-person activities to help you find out more about studying with us and the subjects we offer across our campuses in Devon and Cornwall.
Summer Open Days
Our in-person summer open days have now finished, but you can still join our online open day.
Bookings for our Autumn Open Days will go live soon: in early July.
Online Open Day – Wednesday 13th July 2022
Some of our subjects are taught at both the Penryn (Cornwall) and Exeter campuses and some are only taught on one campus. Before booking your Open Day, please check the course you are interested in; noting that modules are different for subjects taught at both campuses. You can view course details and location here.

Upcoming undergraduate events
Our Offer-Holder Visit Days have now finished for this year but there is still plenty of opportunity for you to visit our campuses. We are running additional Campus Tours through the Easter vacation as well as every week during term time. To book please visit here.
We also have our online subject taster sessions running from March to May. Details of how to book these sessions are in the email sent to you just after you received your offer.
If you encounter any difficulties with booking then please use our enquiry form for assistance.
We have recently launched 360 Virtual Campus Tours of our beautiful campuses in Devon and Cornwall that allow you to take a look around the campuses, their grounds and facilities including accommodation, sports centre, library, seminar rooms and lecture theatres.
In addition to an Open Day, why not take part in our Discover University series? Activity includes regular subject specific sessions delivered by our academic community, as well as information and guidance on choosing a university course, writing a personal statement, navigating the UCAS process and more! Each session includes a live Q&A with University of Exeter staff or students, which provides a great opportunity to gain insight into life and study at a University of Exeter campus.
