About The University of Exeter
Home of world-class research, teaching and facilities, Exeter is one of the top universities in the world.
Our students tell us that what sets us apart from other universities is our approach. Our aim is to put you first in everything we do, helping you to become a graduate with the knowledge, skills and attitude to excel.
With 22,500 students including around 18,000 undergraduates, we are large enough to offer the academic excellence and facilities you’d expect but small enough to feel friendly and welcoming. Our beautiful campuses in Exeter and Cornwall are ideal places to study and live.
Creating an outstanding learning and teaching environment with students at the heart of everything we do is at our core. Our commitment to your learning experience has been recognised through the awarding of a Gold rating in the UK Government’s first national Teaching Excellence Framework in 2017.
As well as outstanding teaching and high student engagement in learning, the world-leading research of our academics underpins everything we do. Undergraduate students are taught by passionate experts working at the frontiers of their discipline, with many students having the opportunity to take part in cutting-edge research projects alongside these academics during their final year. This gives you an insight into what further study is like at Masters and PhD level, and equips you with the self-directed, problem-solving and investigative skills that will help you succeed in your career.
As a Russell Group university our research makes a difference across the world. We bring together research in science, engineering, mathematics, medicine, humanities and social sciences, breaking down barriers between disciplines to explore the biggest problems of our times.
