A Picturesque Safe Campus

The Streatham Campus, which is the home to the majority of the university's 10, 500 students is built around a former country estate and overlooks the city, which is only a short walk away. The grounds are noted for the collection of rare trees and other plant species, which flourish in the milder climate of the South West region. In fact the University is reputed to have one of the most beautiful campuses in the United Kingdom. The teaching buildings, the Library, Postgraduate centre, Sports Halls and the student amenity buildings are all conveniently situated within walking distance of each other. The halls of residence and most of the University flats are only a short walk away so you will not have to waste time and money on travelling.


Our second site in Exeter, the St. LUnited Kingdome's Campus, is just over a mile across the city. You will study here if you belong to the school of Education or if you are studying exercise and sports sciences. The campus is compact and attractive with its own Hall of residence and self catering flats.


If you plan to study mining or environmental science you will be based at CSM, Cornwall. This is a modern purpose built site, midway between the towns of Camborne and Redruth. Please see the CSM web page for further information. Top Ten for Employability

Exeter graduates continue to be highly successful in obtaining top quality graduate employment. A survey published in the Times, showed Exeter as ninth in a league table for graduate recruitment by Britain's top 200 employers. These are companies like Proctor and Gamble, HSBC, Esso and Boots. The University offers a careers advice service which runs a comprehensive programme of events, including guidance interviews, employer presentations, skills events, practice job interviews with employers and guidance on preparing your CV and making applications. So when you return to your home country you will be equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to apply for any employment.

We also work with employers in the region to give students work experience, both during their study and after graduation as part of our Student Business Projects scheme.

Quality of Teaching

Exeter has an excellent reputation for its teaching and research and we are are committed to maintaining our high standards. The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) reviews individual subjects on an on going basis . Under these reviews, fifteen schools at Exeter University have scored an "excellent" (22+points) rating.

We also aim for students to have as much choice as possible in their studies. This could involve taking modules outside your own main subject area, or studying for up to one year in a University in Europe.

Situated close to National Parks and beautiful coastline

Some of the most stunning countryside in Britain is right on the doorstep. The national parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and the heritage coastline of Devon and Cornwall provide not only spectacular scenery, but also plentiful opportunities for the outdoor enthusiast including cycling, hiking, sailing, surfing, canoeing and climbing. Of course, you can enjoy the countryside and beaches in a more relaxed fashion. The coastal town of Exmouth with its sandy beaches is only 20 minutes away on the train. Many students venture there to enjoy the legendary ice creams!
