Exeter is the only Oxford College to boast it’s own dedicated Careers Office, for both undergraduates and postgraduates.
Throughout the year, the Careers Office puts on a variety of events ranging from one-of-a-kind lectures in College to subject-themed seminars over lunch. The Careers Office is a great aspect of College to get to know well, if anything because of the brilliant people you’ll meet!
