Your photo should be:

  • A recent resemblance of you on your own.
  • A head and shoulders shot with you looking at the camera.
  • A good quality photo, e.g not a photo of a photo.

Continuing Students

If you are a current student continuing on to a new course, you do not need to apply for a new UniCard. You will be issued a new UniCard using the photograph we already have on file for you ready for your course start date.

If you would like to update the photograph on your UniCard, please send a photograph adhering to the above guidelines to cornwall-cardoffice@exeter.ac.uk, with the title "Updated UniCard Photo For New Course."


Collecting your Unicard

You can collect your Unicard from when you arrive in Cornwall - please visit https://www.exeter.ac.uk/newstudents/whenyouarrive/ for information on latest opening times and collection arrangements.
