Freshers Week 2021

Student Stories

Exeter is an incredible place to go to University - there's so much for you to do, see and get involved with during your time here. To help you find out what students love about Exeter so much, and also for useful tips and advice before you start the year, we've worked with current students to bring you a series of blogs to help you get ready, including from our amazing Welcome Team volunteers! 

We'll be posting more throughout the summer as we head towards Freshers', so make sure you come back here to check them out! 

If you'd like to write a blog or share a tip, please get in touch with us
