New for 2021/22

Inbound Appointments

We offer 1:1 virtual appointments with the Inbound Team.  You can discuss anything you like about University life, or if you would just like to chat with someone in the team. We'll do our best to help with any concerns you may have and signpost you to the services or contacts available.  15 minute appointments are available on Wednesday afternoons between 2 and 4pm and you can book by emailing us with your requested time slot.

Pre-departure Webinars

To help you prepare for your Exchange/Study Abroad experience, we have started pre-application and pre-arrival webinars.  You will be able to meet us virtually, ask any questions you may have, and find out all about student life in Devon and Cornwall.

Visa Webinars 

The International Student Support Office hosts live webinar events to help you prepare your journey to the UK.  Bespoke information will be given to each group, and webinar recordings will be posted after the event.

Social Media

We’re broadening the use of our Social Media platforms, namely our Instagram channel @exeterabroad to include student support, and signposting for the incredible opportunities UoE has to offer, both inside and outside the classroom.  We want to show you how you can immerse yourself in British and specifically Devonian and Cornish culture, even from the comfort of your own home.  We also hope to utilise @exeterabroad to showcase Study Abroad at the University of Exeter, insofar as using the platform as a promotional centre.  If you wish to find out more, please contact

Inbound ELE Page

The Exeter Learning Environment (ELE) is an online resource which provides students with information on modules, study skills and more.  We've created an ELE page specifically for Inbound students which centralises useful information, everything from academic support to the best places to see in Exeter and Penryn.

Societies in Isolation

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

Grand Challenges

Grand Challenges is a project week at the end of the academic year in which students work in interdisciplinary groups to design 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.  Applications will open on February 8th 2021.

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.
