Information: In order to ensure that we can continue to support you with making informed decisions about your future during this difficult and stressful time, we are excited to launch to you the University of Exeter’s new online support programme – Discover University. As Realising Opportunities participants, taking part in Discover University will mean that we can still support you with developing new skills and knowledge during this time when we’re not able to run the face-to-face events we would normally be running – so we’re encouraging everyone to get involved!

Delivered through a range of different online platforms, including Facebook and YouTube, we will be offering you the chance to take part in regular live online events and explore a wide range of content in your own time; explore real-world issues, including Travel Through Technology, Mental Health & Wellbeing, Climate Change, and Brexit with experts in those fields; talk live to advisors who can answer your questions on a wide range of topics, such as choosing a course and student finance; hear from current University students about their experience of university, and much more.

Discover University is open to anyone, whether you are considering going to university in the future or whether you are looking for ways to add something a bit different to your home-learning experience, whether you are a parent / carer or a teacher / advisor, and no matter how near or far you live from the University of Exeter.

How to book a place: Some events require you to register and others do not. Please see the individual events for booking details. You can find all the events advertised here: www.facebook.com/DiscoverUniExe where you can also receive regular updates, and join in on live events as they happen!

Any steps required to confirm your attendance with the university running the event: In order to evidence your participation, you will need to ask at least one question in any event – and pre-register for any events that require it – and then email realisingopportunities@exeter.ac.uk with the event title, date, and your name to allow us to verify your attendance.
