The University of Exeter offers students a wide range of support services throughout its campuses. Wellbeing Services offer counselling and other physiological therapies, and can support those with mental health issues and advise on further assistance.
Services also include a Chaplaincy Team for those of any and all faiths, and the impartial, free, and independent information service given by the Students’ Guild Advice Unit for students at the Streatham or St Luke’s Campus and the Falmouth and Exeter Students’ Union Advice Service for students at the Penryn Campus.
Starting university can be an overwhelming transition, which is where the Exeter’s 'Global Chums’ scheme comes in. Students are provided with a mentor who can make the settling in period that little bit easier and introduce them to many aspects of university life.
The university offers a free Meet and Greet Scheme for international students via coach pick up from airports direct to their university campus. If students need to self-isolate on their arrival into the UK, the university ensures support is available. Students can find out more on the University of Exeter’s dedicated webpage relating to Corona Virus. There are also support services in place for international students, including advice on setting up a UK bank account, registering with a GP or enrolling for language support.
