Inbound Appointments

We are now offering 1:1 virtual appointments with the Inbound Team for the first time ever! These can be to discuss anything you like about University life, or if you would just like to chat with someone in the team. We will do our best to help with any concerns you may have and signpost you to the services or contacts available.

You can book into our 15 minute appointment slots which will be on Wednesday afternoons between 2 and 4pm by emailing us with your requested time slot to see what is available.

Study Abroad Experience Webinars

In order to prepare you for your Study Abroad experience, this year we have started pre-application and pre-arrival webinars for the first time ever! Here you will be able to meet us virtually, ask any questions you may have and find out all about the campus and life in Devon or Cornwall.

Visa Webinars

The International Student Support Office are hosting live webinar events throughout the summer to help you prepare your journey to Exeter this September/October, wherever you are in the world.  Bespoke information will be given to each group and webinar recordings will be posted on this page after the event.

Inbound ELE Page

This year we have created an ELE page specifically for Inbound students. As you will find when you arrive, ELE pages usually hold information for academic modules and courses online. We have now made our own to centralise all useful information for visiting students, including everything from academic support to the best places to see in Penryn and Exeter!

Societies in Isolation

The University of Exeter is committed to facilitating great student experience. While most teams are working remotely (off campus), we have all been contributing to adapting our resources so they are available online! This includes our Student Guild extra-curricular societies so that you can still participate virtually.

Grand Challenges

Grand Challenges is a week at the end of the academic year where you develop a project and work in interdisciplinary groups to create solutions to real-world problems. You will attend talks from academic speakers who are leaders in their fields of research and develop transferable skills that will boost your employability. This year, Challenges Online is running remotely so students can still benefit from this amazing opportunity.

Intercultural Communication Workshops

Our team places high emphasis on student integration, which is why we have collaborated with popular societies and teams that help international students to bring you Intercultural Communication sessions. You will be able to sign up to these online and meet like-minded exchange and home students. It is a great way to make friends from Exeter, develop your global employability skills and understand differences in cultures!

Paid internship opportunities

We’re excited to announce student applications are now open for the Professional Pathways Programme taking place once again in 2021However, this year the programme will be delivered on a fully remote/online basis. We will be delivering the following Pathway programmes: 

Pathways to Arts, Culture and Heritage 

Pathways to Charity and Development 

Pathways to International Trade 

Pathways to Marketing 

To apply, students are required to complete the application process via the new Handshake platform and shortlisted students will then be invited to attend an online assessment centre in March 2021. Successful students will undertake two days of online training (between 7 - 18 June 2021) involving industry professionals, before completing a paid 35 hour, remote-working internship with an employer in the relevant sector - some of these may be able to be converted to workplace based should circumstances allow, but decisions on this will be made much nearer the time. Students from any degree discipline, year group and campus are welcome to apply. The closing date for applications is Monday 18th January 2021.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students to receive employer-led training and gain paid work experience and we would really appreciate your support in promoting the programme to students wherever you are able to. I have also attached a few different sized promotional images for your use in any emails/presentation slides etc. and will be getting in touch with relevant colleagues to provide promotional text for newsletters. Please email if you have any questions!
