Open Days and visiting
Discover the University of Exeter
We've put together a suite of virtual and in-person activities to help you find out more about studying with us and the subjects we offer across our campuses in Devon and Cornwall. These events are primarily aimed at students planning on starting university in Autumn 2022.
We have created these activities and events to help you learn more about us and decide whether we're the right choice for you. You can tour our campuses, attend virtual subject presentations and meet lecturers, discover facilities, find out about our support services and talk to current students. You can select activities below to create your own University of Exeter experience.

Saturdays in October 2021
During October we will be hosting campus visit days across our three campuses. You will be able to join a student-led campus tour, attend a presentation about studying at the University of Exeter and speak to current students about your course of interest in an information fair. Each visit day will cover different subject areas, with current students and professional services staff available to answer your questions about our programmes.
To ensure the safety of our students, staff and visitors booking is essential. The full schedule of campus visit days, including which subjects will be represented on each date, can be found in our booking form below alongside the rest of the Experience the University of Exeter activities. Your choice of academic programme will determine which of our campuses you should visit and the dates available. You can see all of our programmes and find out which location they are taught at on our course webpages.
If you are not able to make the specific date for your subject, we advise that you book a convenient date as the majority of the visit programme is not subject-specific. Penryn Campus events will have all subjects represented at both of their events.
25 – 26 October 2021
We have an extensive range of support services available to ensure you can make the most of your time with us, whichever campus you choose to study at. During October half term we will be hosting live Q&As with our different support services for all of our campuses including Admissions, Accommodation, Student Unions and Sport amongst others.
Booking for these live sessions will open closer to the time. In the meantime, book on to our other Experience the University of Exeter events and we will update you when the programme is released and bookings have opened.
25 – 29 October 2021
The University of Exeter Summit 2021 - building better together, is a week-long virtual conference that has been especially designed to give prospective students the opportunity to discuss and explore key themes around real-world problems. Linked to the agenda of the COP26 Climate Conference in November 2021, this conference will bring together students from all subjects areas to work in interdisciplinary groups and hear from our world-leading academic on their research.
Secure your place through our booking form to experience the University of Exeter's unique approach to interdisciplinary learning that gives our students the skills that future employers need.
Further undergraduate events
We also have plenty of opportunities for students starting to think about higher education, whether it is the right choice for them and more specifically about studying at the University of Exeter.
We have recently launched 360 Virtual Campus Tours of our beautiful campuses in Devon and Cornwall that allow you to take a look around the campuses, their grounds and facilities including accommodation, sports centre, library, seminar rooms and lecture theatres.
We look forward to inviting our offer holders to visit our campuses during the early part of Spring 2022. We will run visit days enabling offer holders to explore our campuses and facilities, meet academics and current students to learn more about your subject of interest and view accommodation to help you decide if the University of Exeter is the right place for you.
Information about these visits, including how to book a place, will be sent to offer holders early in 2022.
In addition to an Open Day, why not take part in our Discover University series? Activity includes regular subject specific sessions delivered by our academic community, as well as information and guidance on choosing a university course, writing a personal statement, navigating the UCAS process and more! Each session includes a live Q&A with University of Exeter staff or students, which provides a great opportunity to gain insight into life and study at a University of Exeter campus.
