Partner Colleges

Module main decoration

In addition to our on-site Academy courses we have long-standing and successful partnerships with local colleges.

This means students can access a very broad range of courses while benefiting from the full support of Exeter Deaf Academy staff, enabling them to achieve their individual ambitions. We work closely in partnership with these organisations to ensure they are Deaf aware and provide the appropriate level of support our students need.
