Outreach events in Cornwall

Over the years we have expanded our outreach activities to the University of Exeter Penryn campus in Cornwall, to tie in with the launch of our BSc Business degree course. We are keen to develop our programme of outreach events in Cornwall and are looking to create new partnerships with schools and colleges, so please do contact us if you would like to be involved.

Upcoming outreach events in Cornwall

Exeter Progression

As part of our Business School subject strand (Business and Management) on the Exeter Progression programme, we run a two-day residential on the Penryn campus.

For more information on this programme, please visit the Exeter Progression website.

Business School Mentoring Scheme

We are now pleased to offer our Mentoring from our Penryn campus, last year one of our Student Ambassadors delivered mentoring in BTEC Business at Helston Community College. We are looking to offer our Mentoring Scheme to even more schools in Cornwall, delivering mentoring for Year 12 students studying A level and BTEC qualifications in Business, Economics or Accounting. If you would be interested in taking part in the scheme please contact us.

Student Shadowing Scheme

We have a fantastic opportunity for your Year 12 students to experience a ‘Day in the life of a university student’ as part of the University’s Shadow a Student Scheme.

Students will spend the day (10:00 – 15:00) accompanied by current undergraduate students and will take part in a variety of activities based around their chosen subject:

  • Attend lectures and/ or seminars in their chosen subject
  • Campus tour
  • Tour of facilities e.g. library and Student's Guild

This free scheme not only allows students to find out more about studying Business at university from current students who have recently been through the process themselves, but they are also able to experience university-style learning first hand and gain a deeper understanding of what it is really like to be a university student. It is also a unique experience for students to reference in their personal statements. We can accommodate school groups or requests from individual students.

We currently offer shadowing on both the Penryn Campus in Cornwall and the Streatham Campus in Exeter. 

In-School visits

We also have a range of Business related workshops and Higher Education talks which our Business School academics are happy to deliver in your school or college. These visits can be adapted for any age group from Year 7-13.
