Here to help
The Inbound team is always on hand to offer help and advice, as well as guidance to make sure you feel supported by the right teams during your time studying at the University of Exeter. Whether it's academic queries, having a document signed or just to have a chat, you can contact us at Inbound@Exeter.ac.uk as well as on our Instagram account at @exeterabroad. Below you will find details on some of the support we can offer, and also what's available from the University in general.
We offer weekly drop-in sessions where you can talk to us over Microsoft Teams. These occur between 2-4pm on Wednesdays so if you have a query you'd prefer to deal with over voice rather than email, just let us know and we'd be happy to help!
We have developed several webinars to give you more information both before and after you arrive here. These are roughly an hour long, covering topics such as module choices, accommodation, city life and various others with a live Q+A at the end. They're a really nice way for us to get to meet you, and for you to get to know the Inbound team!
The webinars take place in May (pre-arrival) and September (post-arrival) for semester 1, and in November (pre-arrival) and January (post-arrival) for semester 2. You will be emailed more details of these webinars closer to the time with an invite link to Zoom.
As well as offering support to you during your time here, we also like to organise fun events! As Covid has put a temporary stop to in-person events we have instead hosted a quizzes throughout the year as a way to get everyone together, and we'll be hosting many more in the coming months so keep an eye out! Once lockdown restrictions have ended we'll be back to organising in-person events, including meet and greets when you arrive, support sessions, movie nights and more!
We know that going abroad and living in another country can be incredibly stressful, and that the pandemic has only heightened that, so we want to sign-post you to the University's wellbeing services; as well as the Inbound being here to support you, the University of Exeter also has a dedicated Wellbeing department that you can contact at any time to seek confidential advice and help. They have a huge amount of resources which you can find here: Wellbeing Services | Student Wellbeing | University of Exeter and can offer online appointments should you need them. Please feel free to reach out to them if you feel like you are struggling as they are a fantastic place to seek help.
Library Services + Covid-19 Support
And lastly, the pandemic has obviously caused many of the University's buildings and in-person services to have to close, including the library. If you need to access the library's services then please check their FAQ page here FAQs - Library Services & Support during Covid-19 - LibGuides at University of Exeter
