Exeter College

Exeter College is a large tertiary college which places teaching, learning and student success as our top priority. The College was judged as outstanding by Ofsted.

School leavers can study at Entry Level, Level 1, 2 or 3. The level you start at depends on your current abilities and school results. You can move your way up through the levels until you have completed Level 3, then you can progress on to higher education at college or university or find employment.

Learning support - If you have a specific learning difficulty, physical disability or suffer from mental ill health and this impacts on your learning, we understand the pressures you may be under.  To make sure we fully understand the support you may need at Exeter College, you will have a course interview with the teaching team and a Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) interview with one of the Learning Support Team. The Support Team will talk through your needs with you so that we have a complete picture of your needs before you start college. This is to help you make the best start to college life as possible.

The Centre for University Level Studies offers a suite of qualifications at university level including Foundation Degrees (FdA, FdEng and FdSc), BTEC Higher National Certificate (HNC) and Higher National Diploma (HND), Bachelor of Arts Ordinary Degree (BA Ord), Bachelor of Science Honours Degree (BSc Hons) and Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) – incorporating a Diploma in Education and Training.

Apprenticeships at Exeter College. An Apprenticeship is for people of all ages, 16+, to help kick-start a career in a job that suits their skills and interests, to facilitate a career change, or for people who would like to progress in their current role. Apprenticeships are in a wide variety of sectors and roles, and at different levels.

Adult Learning - For nearly fifty years, Exeter College has been successfully providing professional and accredited courses for adults living in Exeter and the wider area. We offer a wide range of courses and apprenticeships from entry level to degree level, so whether it is progressing in your career, returning to work, improving your Maths and English, working toward a degree or taking up a new interest.

Exeter College has various sites in the city centre and others on the outskirts. 

Devon County Council uses an SEND flag to list services which define themselves as suitable for children and young people with SEND. These are part of Devon's SEND Local Offer. We recommend that you contact the service provider to make sure the service is suitable for your child or young person.
