Teaching Enrichment Workshops

Our annual calendar of Teaching Enrichment Workshops aims to offer a wide range of focussed skills development sessions that support the delivery of school curriculum. Designed to align with a range of pre-16 and post-16 subject areas, these sessions, which are managed and supported by university staff and students, bring participants to one of our campuses with the aim of supporting their school studies, while also providing an opportunity to explore the University of Exeter itself.  

Key points to be aware of with Teaching Enrichment Workshops:

Due to limited resource, we will only be able to offer places to schools who fulfil certain eligibility criteria, which includes being part of the Exeter Links partnership. If you are not sure if this applies to your school, we would encourage you to contact us to discuss.

Where a day is offered to a wide range of year groups, you are welcome to select which is most appropriate for your school in terms of which year group you would like to attend a specific session.

All sessions vary in length dependant on the skill/knowledge being taught. Furthermore, although events are being run by particular disciplines, you do not need to limit those attending to students who are studying those specific subjects. We would encourage you to review the full list of sessions available and select the skill which you feel is most appropriate from a school perspective to enrich your teaching programme.  All workshops have the option to add additional activities to them as follows and you will be invited to select these at the point of booking - 

  • Campus tour
  • Student life presentation
  • UCAS process presentation
  • Choosing a course presentation

Some sessions may have pre set dates, but others have a range of available dates. In this case, once you have asked to book, we are happy to work with you on booking the most appropriate date.

The number of sessions available to book are limited and so once places are booked for the year the opportunity will be removed from the calendar.  Click on the links within the calendar to get in touch with the workshop organisers who will be able to answer any questions you might have and book your group visit.

"I was always planning to come to university when I'm older. What I saw today encouraged me to want to come even more. Everyone is so lovely and kind."

"The student ambassadors were extremely friendly and were able to answer every question."

"I've received a major confidence boost. It was fun, interactive and a great learning experience."
