Applications from current INTO Exeter students

All applications from current INTO Exeter students are managed our International Liaison Office,  working very closely with a dedicated team within the University Admissions Office and colleagues in INTO Exeter. We hope that you find the information below helpful. However if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Application procedures

Once students arrive at INTO Exeter to start their Foundation, International Year One, or Graduate Diploma programme, our International Liaison Office (ILO), will assist them with their application for progression to the University of Exeter. Special "Fast Track" application procedures have been developed for these students, so please DO NOT submit UCAS or postgraduate applications for any students joining an INTO Exeter programme. These are handled internally, in Centre, post arrival.

Following submission of an application, students receive details of their conditional offer for progression to the University of Exeter. This conditional offer will be made up of an academic requirement and an English requirement. To progress succesfully to Exeter, a student must meet BOTH of these conditions as part of their INTO Exeter pathway.  The English condition cannot be replaced by using IELTS (or other English language qualification).  

Foundation and International Year One progression to Exeter

Foundation and International Year One students are required to submit a full UCAS application through the International Liaison Office, using one choice for an appropriate programme at the University of Exeter. UCAS Application Sessions are held in November for Cohort 1 students and in February for Cohort 2 students. Students will be given assistance writing their Personal Statements in their English classes.

Students are also given advice about managing their applications throughout the year in UCAS Track and making appropriate Insurance choice applications. Detailed advice is also given to students about making Firm and Insurance choices.

We monitor students UCAS progress throughout the year, although students remain responsible for checking their UCAS applications on 'Track' on a regular basis, replying to offers by the deadlines given, and keeping contact details up to date. Students are NOT allowed to add more than one choice for Exeter - if they wish to change the programme that they applied for at Exeter, they must visit the International Liaison Office and complete a change of programme request form. All changes are subject to approval by the appropriate College.

Graduate Diploma progression to Exeter

A special Graduate Diploma 'Fast Track' application portal has been created, meaning students do not need to complete the University's online application. Application sessions are held at the end of the first semester (December for Cohort 1, March for Cohort 2). Documents such as references, transcripts, and certificates are not routinely required for an application for progression to the University of Exeter.

Application procedures for INTO Academic English students

We find that most students following an INTO English Study programme are intending to progress onto INTO Exeter academic programmes or are already holding an offer for a University of Exeter degree programme. Students on the Academic English programme who are interested in applying for University of Exeter degree programmes are welcome to make an appointment with the International Liaison Office to discuss their study plan, qualifications and application, and dedicated assistance is available.
