Exeter Scholars

The College of Social Sciences and International Studies contributes to the University's Exeter Scholars programme. Exeter Scholars is a free programme giving you 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. The programme offers opportunities for both South West-based and national students.

As part of the South West Exeter Scholars programme for Year 12 students, the College of Social Sciences and International Studies offers a pathway at the Penryn Campus in Cornwall in Business, Law and Politics. As part of the National Exeter Scholars programme for Year 12 students, the College will offer a pathway at the Penryn Campus in History and Politics.

Day in the Life

Our Day In The Life programme brings individuals or small school groups onto campus to gain an insight into life at the University of Exeter's Penryn Campus in Cornwall by shadowing an undergraduate student for the day.

Accompanied by University of Exeter Student Ambassadors, students will attend undergraduate lectures, seminars and/or 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.

In the College of Social Sciences and International Studies, we offer Student Shadowing in the following subjects for Year 12 students, mature students and care leavers:

  • Law
  • Politics
