Students of Colour @ Exeter

Student Communities / Students of Colour

Exeter is proud to have a growing community of Students of Colour.  We hope that this page helps you find your community so you can making the most of every opportunity to succeed and make life-long friends along the way. Your Students’ Guild is working with Students of Colour to campaign for positive change – challenging the award gap, bringing safety to our streets, and being authentically represented within the University’s spaces and curriculum. We will continue to call out racism and discrimination to ensure Exeter is a safe and inclusive place for all Students of Colour. We’ll be updating this page with the progress we make, and with how you can join with us. Have an idea for a campaign – talk to us and we can help!

Exeter has a number of different communities led by and for Students of Colour:

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 BME Network for staff and students.


Here are some local services and support options for Students of Colour.  

The University Wellbeing Service offers BAME counselling.   

Contact Maisha Reza (Academic Skills and Student Engagement Team) if you’re interested in the CMH BAME Buddy Up peer support scheme for BAME students within the Medical School. Support is predominantly pastoral and often centres on supporting students during their medical placements. If you have an idea for a new peer support scheme, contact ASSET.  

Talk to the Community Representation Team who can work with you and your Officers to campaign for solutions for your community’s experience– whether you need small adjustments or systemic changes!
