Exeter College Expo - 20th April 2017
Unlike any of our other events this event is all under one roof!
The Expo event is open to students wishing to study at all levels and across all subjects, from those just starting to plan their career choices in years 9 and 10 through to those who are focusing on their GCSEs in year 11. This is also an ideal opportunity for our current college students who are about to finish their first year courses to find out about progression within the college.
Discover what we have to offer from our wide range of full time courses and apprenticeships all under one roof!
Lecturers, programme leaders and students from all 38 A Levels and numerous vocational courses and apprenticeships will be on hand under one roof to answer your enquiries, show you a snapshot of what the subjects are like as well as careers experts and specialists giving advice on travel, finance and how to choose the right course for your chosen careers path.
Our students will be running tours of the college's outstanding facilities if you would like to see more!
The Exeter College Expo is a great opportunity to ask any last minute questions before you make your final course choices for college or to help you get a head start before you join year 11.
Don't forget you will have the opportunity to see all of the college sites and facilities at our whole college events throughout the year.
