These conferences will have attendees from a wide range of schools and will allow students to participate in interactive sessions and workshops designed to showcase the diversity of subjects available at university level. Large groups are welcome, and there are no restrictions on how many of the conferences you attend. Please continue to check back for updates.

We can provide £150 towards travel costs for eligible schools in the South West (Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Bristol) and £300 for schools outside. There will be a cap of eight bursaries available per event on a first come first served basis.

Exeter Scholars is a free programme giving participants the opportunity to find out more about university, develop a passion for a chosen subject and gain first-hand experience of student life at the University of Exeter.

It provides participants with:

  • An understanding of university life and an opportunity to hear directly from current university students about their experiences
  • First-hand experience of a leading university and advice from world-class academics who are passionate about the subjects they teach
  • An exciting insight into the type of research carried out by universities and the impact it can have on our everyday lives
  • The chance to make new friends
  • The opportunity to explore a subject of your choice through fully-funded residential events and regular trips to one of our campuses
  • Development of experience and knowledge to help them decide if university is right for them, and if so, boost their university application
  • Development of key skills to help with both current studies and the transition to university-level study in the future
  • A pathway to studying at the University of Exeter and access to the Exeter Scholars benefits packages

The programme offers opportunities for both South West-based and national students, has activity pathways starting as early as Year 9, and supports participants through to the end of Year 13. All pathways include exciting face-to-face events, as well as continued support and online activities for participants to complete in their own time.

We welcome students from all over the world and the UK on to our international summer school programme. Our pre-applicant summer school enables under 18s to learn more about university life and their subjects of choice as well as preparing for the future. The programmes look to give students a chance to experience life at university and explore their possible future and opportunities on offer before they apply.
