Student Ambassadors

Our outreach events would not be possible without the help of dedicated Exeter Student Ambassadors. Current students provide a first-hand insight into studying at the Business School, dispelling any myths and encouraging school pupils to aspire towards Higher Education. It is a great opportunity for students to develop communication and interpersonal skills, interact with young people from a wide range of backgrounds, and to add great work experience to your CV.

This is what one of our Student Ambassadors have to say about being involved in the scheme:

Working as a Student Ambassador at the University of Exeter has been a richly rewarding experience, and presented me with the opportunity to work with a diverse range of groups and individuals. 

I have particularly enjoyed working with GCSE and A Level students, to help them realise their potential and make informed decisions about their future. I have been able to take this on further through the Business School Mentoring Scheme, assisting A Level students in their preparations for their economics  exams, as well as providing them with an insight into university life.

Support for current students

We try to support students once they are with us to increase retention rates and support progression from Higher Education into employment.

The University of Exeter is committed to supporting any young person who is estranged from their family and who is studying without the support or approval of a family network and have therefore taken the Stand Alone Pledge. To find out what help and support is available please visit the estranged students pages or contact

Access to Internships (A2I) is a scheme to help Exeter students (particularly those from an under-represented background) to secure a paid internship using information, support and funding provided by the Career Zone.

We are happy to support the University of Exeter Mature Students Society - keep updated on the Mature Student ELE pages 

The Students’ Guild, supported by the generous assistance of Exeter alumni, is pleased to announce the launch of the student activities hardship fund. The fund is eligible to any student self-declaring financial hardship as a barrier to their engagement with societies and student groups in the Guild.

Progression after university - upReach

We work in partnership with upReach an organisation aimed at supporting undergraduates from less-privileged backgrounds to realise their career potential to ‘improve access to the professions’. upReach Associates (selected current University of Exeter undergraduates) are supported through regular small group sessions, workshops, mentoring, professional experience and application support with the aim to improve their employability. The Business School is proud to support upReach Associates here at the University of Exeter.
