Exeter Postgraduate Open Day - Wednesday 15 November 2017

LocationDateTime
Forum, Streatham Campus, Exeter Wednesday 15 November From 12:00pm

Our Exeter Postgraduate Open Day is a chance to find out more about what it's like to study a Masters or PhD at Exeter. Taking place in the Forum at the heart of our Streatham Campus, you'll find stands for our individual subjects, talks on finance and student life and have a chance to talk  to staff and current postgraduate students about what it's like to study and research here. The day also includes a range of tailored talks for prospective PhD students on specific subjects organised by our academic colleges - see below for details.
