Discover days

Age group - Year 10

This day is designed to appeal to Year 10 students who would like to find out more about what it is like to study at university. Students will be able to take part in taster sessions for their two chosen subjects as well as a tour of the Penryn campus. This is also a good opportunity for students to meet current undergraduate students and ask any questions they may have about student life.

A Day in the Life

Our Day In The Life programme brings individuals or small school groups onto campus to spend a day in the shoes of the University of Exeter student.

Accompanied by University of Exeter Student Ambassadors, students will attend undergraduate lectures, seminars and other academic sessions, take part in a full campus tour, and have the opportunity to speak to staff and current students about the course, student life, the university, the city, and the careers and opportunities available beyond graduation.

Humanities disciplines currently offered at our Penryn campus are English and History.

Year 12 Summer Residentials 

Every July we contribute humanities subject strands on this Year 12 Summer Residential at both Exeter and Cornwall campuses, giving students from outside the region the opportunity to experience life as a University of Exeter student.

Lasting for 4 days and 3 nights, participants will be able to choose from a range of subject activity strands, as well as take part in extracurricular activities that complement the student experience. Find out more on our Year 12 residential webpages about this opportunity. 

For more general residential information please see the our residentials webpages.
