Year 12 University Student Shadowing Scheme

A day in the life of a University student…

Through this scheme, Year 12 pupils have the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a University of Exeter student. This scheme is offered by the College of Life and Environmental Sciences and includes the following subject areas:

  • Biosciences
  • Geography
  • Psychology
  • Sport and Health Sciences

By gaining a direct insight into University life, pupils are better informed about the experience, structure and lifestyle of what to expect in higher education. 

The day

Pupils will be allocated a Student Ambassador, who they will shadow for the day (10am-3pm, with flexibility depending upon travel arrangements).

Pupils will get the chance to attend and get involved in a combination of lectures, seminars, laboratory sessions and library work.

Get involved

If you are a pupil interested in getting involved, or you are a teacher or parent who would like to find out more, please contact us.
