Supporting You at College

We are determined to give you the support and help you need while you’re at college and we are proud of our excellent record in providing a welcoming and inclusive environment where all learners have equality of opportunity.

Higher Education (HE) Adviser

Our dedicated HE Adviser can give you advice and guidance before you start at college whether you are considering applying or during your application process and will remain your first point of contact for enquiries once you are studying here.

They can help you access facilities and support in college, help you find accommodation or apply for student finance funding and answer any general queries you may have about studying at Exeter College.

Your first weeks here

During the first few weeks of your course, your tutor will take you through your induction programme, including a tour of the college that will also show you the dedicated university level areas, learning centres and student cafes.

They will also tell you about events that are taking place within the city for university level students that you can get involved with such as music performances, student lock-ins and more.

Learning Support

If you have a learning difficulty, sensory impairment or a physical disability and would like individual learning support, you can apply for Disabled Students Allowance (DSA) via Student Finance England.

The DSA can authorise access to certain software, technology and learning support. You must have applied for the standard student finance package online before applying for DSA via the paper application.Click here to find out more and apply.
