I think I picked the wrong uni.... Im from London and i love the buzz you have from nights out and Exeter doesnt really do this for me. There are lots of places to go to and even though its all new to me, just hasnt got the same spark as what I have in London. All my uni mates hate that they sometimes have to go back to their home towns, where I am the opposite, I want to go back home to london all the time. Lectures are pretty good, nothing to exciting, but then again am I meant to enjoy myself?!!?
Woo Freshers! The course I am on doesn’t actually have many scheduled hours and it’s so weird considering I used to be in class all the time because of A levels. I have so much free time i love it! Although I know I will have to spend some time on work very soon! I haven’t stayed in halls, but I have been there for pre-drinks and they seem quite basic. Basically, this university is the one to go too!
Being a fresher here is actually so much fun, there is lots going on and I’ve only just been to freshers fair - where you get to find out loads about it. Coming to this university was a good choice as I love my course. Thats what is so great about this university. Always think about the Accommodation here is a little expensive and I think they should really think through what they are charging students, even though they don’t really charge that different from others around the area, but I feel that this could change as I feel like I never have any money.
Here at Exeter there are various sports on offer and it seems that there is something for everyone, so I do recommend going to the student union to have a look. My top tip is to come here and try it for yourself.
The university is quite small and the town itself is also small coming from london i was very surprised of how small it was but i feel this makes the whole university life.
Everyone one knows everyone, if your in a sports society then your going to be in for such a fun time. socials are amazing and I'm talking on behalf of most of the sports teams, seeing them on nights out they all mix together and the nights turn out to be a memorable one.
Exeter is a lovely uni, if your looking to study hard and take a lot of interest with your course.
I left university with a first, leaving me in good stead to get a job which I'm now applying for, the university also helped me with job interviews and getting me prepared.
The library is open 24/7 which is obviously a bonus if you like studying at night or your down on your work and need to do all nighters.
I would recommend to study hard in your first year though as this puts you in the right frame of mind when going into the 2nd and 3rd years, which count.
I have just finished my first year, before i moved to Exeter i wasn't sure if this was the place for me, i felt that the city in itself was to laid back and boring. This was until i experienced the culture of vibe of that the city gives of.
If you love the sea and love surfing, this is very much the place for you, surfing is a big part Exeter and Cornwall as a lot of you may of heard.
If your a bit of a romantic like myself i recommend taking your partner of date to the beach with a picnic, trust me it will work!
Cornwall campus is very nice, the buildings are fairly new, making the accommodation modern and up to a high standard. I have friends at other universities and they always comment on how nice our halls are.
The student lounge is massive! they entertain regular gigs and shows, making the night life experience very enjoyable, the only thing i would say about the town in itself is the fact that its not a place where everything is going on, it is very laid back but don't let this put you off, you need to understand the culture of the city to understand how everyone parties! and it is good!
The library is the big down point in my eyes, not with the building but with the rule of having the library shut at 12 pm every night (not including during exam periods) I feel this put me under a bit of pressure when the time came to wanting to study long periods in the evening.
Apart from that I'm loving my time here in Exeter and would recommend it!
Good campus, decent accommodation, and good tutors, actually tutors that are bothered about what you learn and try to make you understand their way of thinking, rather than, their way or the highway in assignments, which trust me, can be annoying!
Accommodation, well there is so many options all on campus which gives it a great vibe for all the students. Some of my mates that went to other universities, their campus’s we’re all over the place. My halls were reasonably out-dated but the room was good. Not cheap, but it was pretty much full-board? I think it would be called?
The city, it’s massive, but you will run out of places to go, not a proper ‘city’ like London or Manchester. Lots of clubs, lots of society not one thing you couldn’t do.
