The University of Exeter

A School of Art was founded in Exeter in 1855; by 1922 it had become the University College of the South West and was given part of the present-day Streatham Campus. The Royal Charter, under which we became the University of Exeter, was granted in 1955. Recent developments include the launch of the University of Exeter Medical School, following a successful 10 year partnership with Plymouth University in the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry and the completion of a £380 million investment in our campus facilities. . The University has around 18,500 students, of which 14,200 are undergraduates. This means it’s large enough to offer the academic excellence and facilities you’d expect to find in a major university, but also offers a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The University has three main sites - two in Exeter and one at Penryn, near Falmouth in Cornwall. Exeter is ranked 7th in the UK in The Sunday Times University Guide 2013 and 10th in The Guardian and The Times league tables. We are ranked in the top one per cent of universities in the world according to the Times Higher Education international rankings, have recently joined the prestigious Russell Group of research intensive universities and of course have been named University of the Year by The Sunday Times. We are also in The Times top 10 research-intensive universities: nearly 90 per cent of our research was rated as internationally recognised in the latest (2008) Research Assessment Exercise. Every subject was assessed as including world-leading (4*) research. The University is once again in the top 10 for student satisfaction, according to the 2012 National Student Survey (NSS). We rank sixth out of 121 UK higher education institutions for overall satisfaction and we’ve maintained our top 10 position every year since the survey was launched eight years ago. We now rank third in the country for student satisfaction with the quality of our teaching, up one place from last year. Exeter’s main Streatham Campus is one of the most attractive settings of any university, and has benefitted from a £380-million investment programme . This ambitious programme includes £130 million for student residences, substantial investment in the Business School, a new Mood Disorders Centre and new facilities for biosciences and the Law School. The jewel in the crown of the new developments is the Forum, a new £50-million development which creates a central hub and features an extended library, new student services centre, technology-rich learning spaces, a new auditorium and additional social and retail facilities. Our £100-million Cornwall Campus near Falmouth has helped boost applications. Shared with Falmouth University, the campus offers distinctive degrees in biosciences, geography, geology, renewable energy, English, history, politics and mining engineering. The latest development is a £30-million Environment and Sustainability Institute that will help put the university at the fore-front of environmental and climate change research. The University of Exeter Cornwall Campus beats every other university in the UK for student satisfaction.
