Welcome 2022 is set to be the biggest and most exciting welcome in the history of Falmouth and Exeter Students’ Union. Join your elected presidents and other representatives in celebrating the start of your university experience.
The Falmouth and Exeter Students’ Union is a student-led organisation for students at Falmouth University and the University of Exeter Cornwall. You are in charge of what we do and we want to hear from you.
You are represented by your presidents – you'll be seeing a lot of them over the year. Find out more about their promises on what they will deliver for you this year.
Whether you are living at home while studying, are starting or continuing your postgraduate journey, living in a totally new country or trying something new to you, you can come to us for help, advice and connection.
We’re here together at the SU and look forward to helping you get settled into your new home.
What to do in Welcome
Take a look at all the sports and societies
available to you. You will need to fit activities around your studies so think about how much time you want to spend as you look through the lists of groups and events.
Share student ideas and opinions
Join in with the students’ union and make real change on your course and campuses as a course rep
or Part Time Officer
. Each course has reps in every year who work together with the universities to make sure courses include exactly what students want. Some Part Time Officers represent students in Student Council, while others work together as part of the Liberation Committee
and Green Committee
Sign up to volunteer
on a project or with an organisation. You can choose what you want to do as well as suggesting organisations you want us to get in touch with.
Plan your next event and get it funded by the SU! £500 of funding is available for projects and ideas that are student-led. If your idea is focused on tackling student loneliness – we want to hear from you. Applications open in October.
Budget now, save yourself the stress. Getting your money in line now will benefit you when it comes to planning out the things you want to do this year, whether that looks like travelling over the winter break or comfortably ordering a special celebratory drink when your assignment results come up. You can get free budgeting help from our Advice team.
Finally, have fun and enjoy meeting lots of people at these events:
Taking care of yourself
New place, new housemates, new course, new people: this is a busy time that can be overwhelming. You don’t have to make friends and feel sparkly the whole time. There will be lots of opportunities to meet new people throughout your entire time of studying and once you’ve graduated too.
It’s ok to put yourself first if you need to chill out instead of keeping on going.
You can find lots of helpful platforms and links in our mental health resources but if you need more help, you might want to talk to the student support team.
