Advertising

You can advertise your company, opportunities or competitions through a range of mediums - ideal for getting your brand known on campus. Below is a selection of options currently available.

Please note that we can only promote careers-related items. Please contact Event Exeter for any non-careers advertising.  

We can advertise externally organised employability-related events on our careers portal Handshake. Where appropriate and subject to space, we may be able to include the details in our weekly student employer event newsletter.

We require at minimum a two week lead time before the event or registration deadline for advertising. This is to allow time for us to check and process the request before setting it live and to provide a reasonable advertising period  for students to learn of the event. 

We reserve the right to decline events if they:

  • are not relevant to our students (i.e. not aimed at current students/graduates or targeting disciplines we do not offer)
  • clash or compete with similar activity we are delivering
  • require payment or a deposit to attend
  • fail to meet our advertising guidelines

You can connect to the University of Exeter on Handshake here and upload your external events to the platform.

You can find out more on joining Handshake here, and how to upload your events to the system quickly by following the steps shown in this guide

Please ensure that you have switched your emails and notifications on so that you will receive updates about the event. This is important so you are alerted to any questions you may receive from us about your listing. 

To do this, log in to Handshake, click on your name and select 'User notifications'. Under 'notification preferences' ensure that there are green ticks in the 'events' section under the emails and notification column, and specifically 'Someone comments on an event that I organise'. 

Charge: Free

E-shots can be used to promote almost anything to do with recruiting students or graduates - specific vacancies, recruitment programmes, events, competitions or open days.

E-shots can only be sent in plain text format. We are unable to accept graphics, logos, or other HTML coding.

You can send e-shots to all our students or target specific year groups, colleges or departments. A breakdown of our academic colleges and departments can be found here.

If you have other criteria which you wish to target, please contact us and we will see what we can do - but please note that we are not able to target on the basis of gender, nationality, disability or other protected characteristics.

Some targeting criteria may result in unusually small cohorts - if you have very specific requirements, it may be worth contacting us in advance to get an estimate of numbers to ensure you get value from your e-shot.

Please note that emails cannot be sent to graduates.

The charge for sending a targeted email is £150 + VAT.

We send only two targeted emails per week during term times so it is advisable to book well in advance.

Payment must be made in advance by credit or debit card (we are currently unable to accept payment via American Express).

Bookings for the new academic year 22/23 are now open and can be accessed here.

Please contact James Bradbrook on vacancies@exeter.ac.uk if you have any questions.

You can promote your opportunities, events and competitions to students via our Twitter account. Simply tweet at us and we will re-tweet for you.

Our twitter handles are: 

We strongly recommend you include a photo alongside your tweet to gain maximum impact.

Please note this is the only social media advertising we offer.
