Description

The University of Exeter is a public research university based in Exeter, South West England. A member of the Russell Group of UK universities, it combines excellence in teaching and research. It was awarded gold in the first Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in recognition of the high quality of its teaching. 98% of its research was rated as international quality in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF). Its motto is Lucem sequimur (we follow the light). 

It has its origins in the Exeter School of Art and Exeter School of Science, founded in 1855 and 1863 respectively. The schools merged, becoming the Royal Albert Memorial College, then the University College of the South West of England and finally in 1955 the University of Exeter, when it received its Royal Charter. 

The University is spread across four campuses: Streatham and St Luke’s in Exeter, and Penryn and Truro in Cornwall. In 1993, Camborne School of Mines was merged into the University of Exeter. 

The University of Exeter is organised into six academic colleges. Their many research institutes and centres include the Centre for Leadership Studies, the Bill Douglas Centre for the History of Cinema and Popular Culture, the Living Systems Institute and the Environment and Sustainability Institute. Its research themes are often interdisciplinary, and include climate change, translational medicine and exoplanets

University of Exeter alumni include J. K. Rowling – who studied a BA in French and Classics – and politicians Sajid Javid and Caroline Lucas

I had a fantastic time studying my undergraduate degree at this university. There is a lot of care that is put into supporting students and giving advice, plus a great social scene of clubs and societies to participate in!

This university has one of the largest campuses in the UK which one can clearly notice in the first few days of freshman year. The university is split into 3 campuses in fact with the main one being Streatham campus. It is a very beautiful campus full of greenery in a small yet beautiful British town. The only downside is that the campus was constructed on a hill so for people walking from their accommodations to classes and back is quite a tiresome trek. However, as it’s located in a typical British town it has several classic pubs to relax in. It has a very large student population however, at first sight, it does not look very diverse as you will primarily bump into mainly British and Asian students. Eventually, in a few weeks you will find your own group of friends to connect with whether it be in your course or accommodations.

Exeter is great, the facilities and lectures are good and the atmosphere too. The first year accomodation was very nice for me in catered accommodation, also the sports facilities are excellent especially for hockey.

Exeter University seems to have a reputation of controversy surrounding it every single year, however, speaking as a minority student, I have found that there are many positives to coming here. My Law course has been challenging, but a thoroughly enjoyable one and the friends I have made on my course, and from societies I have joined throughout my time here, are ones I will keep for life. However, I will remark that the jump from first year Law to second year is quite startling and I realised I needed to be more organised to continue getting the grades I expected from myself. The facilities on campus are great, with many study spaces you can enjoy either on your own or in groups - though the library seems to be busy 24/7 so it's recommended you get a seat early on! On the whole I would recommend this University - it is situated in a city that is small enough you could walk everywhere, but not so small you would be bored all the time as there are bigger cities nearby which are just a train ride away! My learning experience has been great so far and the people I have met have been amazing.

Good university and friendly professors. Many of the professors take a personal interest in the student and are available during office hours to solve any questions. Accommodation and market place is good and city itself is great too.

I studied French and Italian at Exeter for four years and after graduating last year I can already say I miss uni life and my overall experience there! Exeter is a great uni to be at, the campus is lovely - there are lots of quiet places for walks in nature and the facilities are great, especially the library. There are many study spaces for both independent and group studying too. For language students, the year abroad is probably the most exciting year and Exeter really do everything they can to make the transition easy and they provide excellent and constant support when you are in your country of choice. I met wonderful people, have made friends for life, and if I could I would go back tomorrow! Good luck to all future students ?

They provide great support for students in terms of career. The professors are generally very knowledgeable and helpful. Although location is not ideal if you're not physically fit as they have hills everywhere.
