Speak to a current student

Each year, a group of current students contact alumni across the world via telephone.

Calls from our students are a chance for alumni to hear about Exeter’s latest news and compare their own University experiences to today’s students. For those currently studying, a call is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about what life after graduating from Exeter is like, getting an insight into possible career choices.

As part of the conversation, our students will also talk to you about the ways that donations can change the lives of both current and future students. We were delighted by the incredible response from so many alumni to our most recent campaign in Spring 2023, which resulted in £106,000 raised to support students at Exeter.

We now look forward to speaking to many more alumni as part of our Autumn 2023 Telethon. which will run from Monday 31 October to Sunday 3 December 2023. Our callers will be calling in the evenings on Monday to Thursday, during the day on Saturdays, and in the afternoons and evening on Sundays. We do not call on Fridays. 

Please note we want to ensure that we contact you in your preferred manner. Should you wish not to be called, please email
