The University of Exeter was founded in 1955, although its complete history dates back as far as 1900. At present around 20,000 students from over 140 countries study at the University’s three campuses in the South West of England. Despite being relatively young, Exeter is a member of the UK’s elite Russell Group and is considered one of the best universities in the world.
Six academic colleges offer study opportunities at undergraduate, masters and research level in a wide range of subjects across science, humanities and social sciences. The University of Exeter has a longstanding international approach, with many courses offering the opportunity to study abroad. All students are offered foreign language tuition, either as part of their chosen degree or as a separate evening class. Graduate prospects are further improved by a focus on career management skills and the possibility of work placements and internships as part of the degree programme.
