Alumni and Friends

WELCOME to our dedicated page for Exeter College Alumni. We recently launched our first ever Alumni magazine. You can pick up a copy of EXE at college city centre receptions, read some of the articles below or email us for a posted copy. If you have your own memories and photos of your time at Exeter College then we would love to hear from you. Please contact us on

John Laramy - Exeter College Principal

It is an absolute pleasure to launch our first ever alumni and friends magazine. I too am an alumnus of Exeter College. I started my higher education journey at the college, studying for a HNC in building studies on a part time basis between 1992 and 1994.

At Exeter College we are proud to be able to say that we have many thousands of alumni and friends who are part of a local, national and global community. We believe that coming to Exeter College is just the start of what is an enduring connection to our very special college. As well as being a place where lives are transformed through the power of education, our college is a place where lifelong friendships are made, and memories are formed.

    Throughout our very first magazine we have tried to feature just a small selection of our amazing and talented alumni and friends. We are delighted to have the opportunity to speak to Michael Caines MBE, our very first patron of the college. Michael has given an enormous amount back to the college.

    Elsewhere in the magazine you will be able to read insights from Julian Tagg and a particular highlight of mine – the chance to see him with long hair! There are also interviews with two exceptional brothers who are studying at the University of Oxford, the legendary Anne Oxborough and our Apprenticeship star, Abi, talks about why she chose an Apprenticeship over going to university. Some of the articles have been written by our very own students and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for their work.

    It is always a pleasure to speak to someone with a personal story and connection with our college. I do hope our magazine sparks some memories and inspires others to get back in touch. We very much hope you enjoy reading about your fellow alumni and friends in our magazine. This is just the start of us reconnecting with our alumni and friends.
