Welcome to Exeter! We’re really excited that you’ve chosen to study at Exeter. One of the reasons Exeter is a world-leading university is because we have students from all over the world! We hope that this page will help you find opportunities to make friends and get all the support you need to make Exeter feel like home. Your Students’ Guild is here to make sure your time at Exeter is as good as it can be. We are here to give you independent advice on continuing to live and work in the UK after you’ve completed your degree, and to help you make the changes you want to see at Exeter. Have an International campaign or event you want us to support you with, celebrating your culture? Let us know how we can help!

Exeter has a number of different communities led by and for International Students:
We also have a variety of nationality and culture specific societies. We also have groups with the Inclusivity Badge and the Diversity Badge. The University also has the International Staff and PG Students Network and the BME Network for staff and students.
Here are some local services and support options for International Students.
University International Student Support.
The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) provides support to international students by providing information, guidance, and advice.
Contact Global Chums – a buddy up scheme for newly arriving International Students across all degree programmes. Support is pastoral, focusing on supporting the transition to a new country and culture. If you have an idea for a new peer support scheme, contact ASSET.
University Wellbeing support for International Students. The University Wellbeing Service offers BAME counselling.
Talk to the Community Representation Team who can work with you and your Officers to campaign for solutions for your community’s experience at university – whether you need small adjustments or systematic changes!

NUS Liberation Conference
This year’s Liberation Conference will be a high-energy, impactful campaigning space - moving away from reacting to the symptoms, and going after the root causes instead.
