Teacher Training Open Days
Becoming a teacher will lead to an exciting and rewarding career. Quality teachers are highly sought after, and choosing the right teacher training programme is an important step in ensuring a successful career.
If you are interested in training to become a teacher, we host Open Days in the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms. Our open days provide you with the opportunity to visit our campus, meet our tutors and learn more about our Primary and Secondary PGCE and School Direct programmes.
UCAS Apply 1 opened on 26 October 2017. For the full list of important dates please see the UCAS website.
Although our Open Days are primarily for students looking to start their programme in 2018, we also welcome second year students, mature students or career changers considering teaching as an option or who are looking to apply for 2019 entry, so please do come along. Please note that for English, History and Physical Education you are advised to attend an earlier open day as these programmes can fill soon after Apply opens.

The Open Day was fantastic. Everything was well planned and informative. It has not only emphasised that this is the course and route I want to take, but that Exeter University is where I want to study.
I felt the most useful part of the day was having lunch with the tutors – that was where we learnt the nitty-gritty about the course, how it’s run, the placements and career advice. We also got the chance to talk to other prospective students.
I found it informative and welcoming. All of my questions were answered in a very friendly way. I found all the staff I talked with to be very approachable and informative.
