Izzy, studying BA French and Spanish, joined the University of Exeter through  Clearing, and shares her advice:

‘Ultimately accepting a place through Clearing will not change your university experience at all and most importantly your process to get to university is completely confidential and it’s your decision who you share this with. The Clearing process exists for a reason, to give students a second chance to attend university that year and accepting the offer from the University of Exeter is one of the best decisions I made.’

Psychology student Zara shares her tips on how to meet people at University:

‘There are so SO many societies; if you are international there are tens of cultural societies you can choose from, from Latin Society to Asian Society, more specific ones like Singapore Society. It’s a great way to find ‘home’ where you are if the UK isn’t your native home... Your people are totally out there, you just have to find them.’

Gaby, studying a Masters in Mining Engineering on the Penryn Campus, shares her tips on accessing academic and wellbeing support at the University to help you get the most out of your experience. 

'The University offers a bunch of support resources tailored to help us succeed academically, from study support to pastoral care and advice.

Each student will get a personal tutor from the faculty. These tutors are great for bouncing around ideas about your career plans, tackling academic challenges, or dealing with personal stuff that might be affecting your studies. They're also there to help you navigate everything from your first days at university to planning your future career moves.

And speaking of careers, our Career Zone team has loads to offer. The Exeter Award journey is something you might want to look into as well; it’s designed to help you build professional experience and get ready for life after graduation.’
