The College of Humanities Taught Student Handbook 2021/22

Welcome to the College of Humanities. This Handbook provides you with the information you will need as you pursue your studies with us – so please feel free to book-mark this page! The sections below cover everything from assessment policies to student representation. Where necessary, we have provided a link to detailed University-level guidance. Your own department or programme may also provide subject-specific guidance (see Subject Handbooks). The resources on the University's Study Zone and Library pages will also be helpful. 

If your query isn’t answered here, or if you would like to discuss your studies with someone in person, there are various other sources of help:

For Streatham Programmes

Staff in the Student Info Points and Hubs for Queens, Amory and Peter Chalk are available to advise students.

You can also contact the Student Infomation Desk (SID) online here or on 0300 555 0444.  

For Penryn Programmes

Staff in the Penryn Info Point and Hub are available to advise students.

You can contact or on 01326 371800.

Via your personal tutor

If you are not sure who your personal tutor is, please check your student record via iExeter. You can email your tutor for an appointment, or drop-in during their regular office hours, which may be online or on campus. For more infomation on personal tutoring see our Academic Personal Tutoring Guide.

Via the Director of Education and other academics 

For certain enquiries, the Director for Education, Senior Tutor, or Assessment Officer in your Department will be able to help (see your Subject Handbook for a list, or contact one of the Hubs listed above).

Via your Student Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC)

Your Student Staff Liaision Committee will take note of queries, concerns and suggestions from students and will raise these with academics. Further information and contact details are on the SSLC ELE pages. 


We hope that you enjoy your studies at Exeter and we look forward to working with you.
