Campus tours

Campus tours

Campus tours are designed to act as an introduction to the campuses and show you the main buildings. For all of our campuses we offer both guided campus tours and self-guided walking tour leaflets that allow you to tour the campus independently. Guided tours are usually conducted by current students.

October Visit Day programme (27th-31st October)

These days provide the opportunity for students who were unable to attend our June or September Open Days, to explore your chosen subject(s), speak to College staff and take part in a tour of our beautiful campus. The programme is spread across the week, with subjects running on specific days. Because of scheduling, you may have to prioritise one subject and please ensure that you book your subject presentation and campus tour on the same day. Spaces are very limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so please book your place early. If you are unable to see your subject on the booking page it will mean that all spaces available are booked.

Booking for the October Visit Day programme at Exeter is now closed.

To book your place at the Penryn campus got to the Penryn Campus October Visit Day booking form.

Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so please book your place early to avoid disappointment.

Campus tours at our Exeter campuses

Campus tours take place at both the Streatham and St Luke’s campuses. If you are interested in studying Exercise and Sport Sciences, please arrange a tour of the St Luke’s Campus. If you are interested in Human Biosciences, Medical Sciences or Sport Science and Psychology you may wish choose to tour both campuses as these programmes are taught across both campuses. If you’ve already applied to Exeter and you are offered a place, you’ll be invited to an Offer-Holder Visit Day during the spring term.
