Available programs

Our suite of flexible undergraduate programmes encompass all areas of business and they have been developed in consultation with industry partners and professional accreditation bodies to remain cutting-edge and ensure you stand out from the crowd. 

With all our degree programmes you have the opportunity to add a year abroad. Studying or working abroad gives you great experience of international cultures, values and languages which can enhance your professional skill set.

You can also choose to spend a year gaining industrial experience. This allows you to put into practice some of the things you have learnt on your course, gain employment experience and give you extra confidence when you set out to find your first graduate role. Many graduate employers now use industrial placements as a pathway to permanent roles, so you may even get a graduate job offer from your placement provider. 

We also offer students the opportunity to build entrepreneurial or leadership skills with our unique ‘With Proficiency in Entrepreneurship’ or ‘With Proficiency in Leadership’ degree pathways. 

Visiting us at one of our Open Days is a great way to help decide if Exeter is the right place for you. If you would like to chat with a current student or a member of academic staff, you can also get in touch to set up a time that is convenient for you.
