Student life

Support

Academic tutor

All students are allocated an academic tutor who oversees your academic progress and personal and professional development. Your tutor is the first point of contact for academic support for the duration of the programme. You will change tutors each year.

In Medical Imaging (Diagnostic Radiography), in addition to your personal tutor you will also have a clinical tutor who will visit you fortnightly during your clinical placements.

Wellbeing

We offer a friendly and supportive environment from your first day with us. Our Pastoral Tutor Team can provide assistance with non-academic issues. The University also provides extensive wellbeing support through a range of services including counselling services, advice units, chaplaincy, childcare facilities and student health centres. Further information can be found on the Wellbeing pages.

Disability

Our Disability Officer is the first point of contact for applicants or students with a specific learning difficulty, disability or ongoing health condition. As a student we are able to provide you with individual support through our AccessAbility team who are able to help with screening for dyslexia and dyspraxia, and diagnostic and support needs assessments. Please contact uemsdisability@exeter.ac.uk.

You will be able to receive support and reasonable adjustments will be made both during time spent within the University or whilst on placement.

We welcome applications from students with disabilities and do all we can to ensure that your participation in both the academic and social life of the University is as successful as that of other students.

Further information is available on our disability support page.

Societies

MedSoc

Medical Society (Exeter MedSoc) is a society run for the students by the students. With socials, sports teams, educational micro-teaches and MedSoc balls, you can ensure your social life at Exeter will be thoroughly enjoyable.

Medical Sciences Society

The Medical Sciences Society provides a social environment for course members, and aims to give an opportunity for all years of the course to meet one another outside of academic activities.

Radiography society

We have a lively community of Medical Imaging students who run the Radiography Society. Social meetings and events are organized throughout the academic year and provide excellent opportunities for getting to know your fellow students and most importantly having fun!

Other academic societies

Non-academic societies

With over 200 societies to choose from, covering everything from Baking to Longboarding, and Dancing to Theatre, there really is something for everyone. Take a look at the Students' Guild website to find more societies that might interest you.

Volunteering

Charity and volunteering work

Our students are hugely active when it comes to charity and volunteering work. No matter what your interests are, we have a society that you can get involved with. Here are a few examples:

Exeter Student Volunteers

ESV is the Students' Guild’s largest student group; dedicated to facilitating volunteering within the local community, and making you more employable.

Sports

Sports Park

St Luke's Campus has its own Sports Centre which offers superb fitness and swimming facilities for students and staff on campus. The centre has recently benefited from a £45,000 investment in new gym equipment bringing state-of-the-art technology to the workout of its members. Find more information about the St Luke's Sports Centre on our Sports Park website.

Athletic Union

The Athletic Union (AU) currently boasts 50 active sports clubs, all of which are student-led by an elected Club Captain and their committee. Each club welcomes athletes of all experiences and abilities whether you are Olympic standard or simply want to try out a new sport whilst studying. For more information please see our Student Sport pages. 

I think aside from the course itself, I have most enjoyed the variety of opportunities there are for literally anything. I have always been someone who finds it difficult to say no to things, hence my extensive list of both extra and intra-curricular activities. For me, I would say the biggest highlight would be both the opportunities presented to you, and the support you receive from those around you whilst pursuing them.
