Help and Advice

Hi, we are the college advice team. We are trained in information, advice and guidance and work in schools across Devon giving face to face advice and help about all 16-18 and university level courses and opportunities at Exeter College!

We regularly visit a number of different schools throughout Devon, so if you would like to meet with us to discuss Exeter College then please speak to your school’s Careers Coordinator to find out if they will be able to arrange an appointment. If we aren’t available in your school then don’t worry, you can still contact us by phone on 01392 400600 or email us
