       I have found the transition back
       into education to be an eye
       opening, brilliant experience and I
       am thoroughly enjoying my course.
       The staff and support available
       at Exeter College have been
       excellent. My tutor is always ready
       to help if I have any queries and
       is extremely knowledgeable. The
       learning environment has been
       tailored to suit an adult learner.

Exeter School of Art
At Exeter School of Art we aim to inspire
each individual, and support you in growing
both personally and professionally as we
prepare you for your next steps in the arts.

       Having already studied my A Levels and Diploma in
       Graphic Design at Exeter College, I was fully aware of
       how good the quality of​teaching is. Having lecturers
       be able to help progress my skills​week in and week out
       is something I’ve rarely come across in my​education.
       All lecturers have had experience in the field which I’m​
       studying, so I learn a lot from them and get a closer
       grasp of what​the industry is really like before I go into
       it myself.​
       Being surrounded by people who are thinking in the
       same way as me and can relate to my interests has
       definitely been one of the​best parts about my courses.
       Having knowledgeable teachers and​great facilities,
       such as darkrooms and large Learning Resource
       Centres, has meant my time at Exeter College has been
       full of new experiences and opportunities.​
       Exeter College has helped me find who I am and what I
       want to do​in the future.​

Business and IT
The faculty of Business and IT is based in
Victoria House on Queen Street. With a city
centre location, the provision thrives on the
links and interaction with the local business
community, and allows students from near
and far to engage in university level study that
supports the region.

            I progressed on from A Levels at Exeter
            College to the HNC, then HND in Business
            and I'm now progressing on to the
            University of Exeter for the Top Up year - a
            BA in Business Studies. I chose to progress
            on to study the HNC at Exeter College
            because I was already used to the learning
            environment and I knew my way around
            the college. I'm excited about the future -
            I'm currently looking at Graduate Schemes
            and employers for next year.
