University of Exeter Experience

(5)·By Morgan S·Mathematics· Jun 2023
My experience at the university of Exeter was overwhelmingly positive. The academic experience itself was really good as I had support throughout my studies. The campus was really nice and it encouraged me to work pretty consistently. Not only this but the town itself is great and condusive to a positive student experience.

Medicine, Year 2

(5)·By Max M·Medicine· Jul 2021
I really enjoyed freshers week during 1st year as it was actually a freshers fortnight. This meant I had a lot of time to meet new people and have a lot of fun. Furthermore it gave me time to get to know exeter before the real work started. I lived in old lafrowda, and I really loved it and miss it now. I had a 10 person flat so was always something going on. Also being next to the student club is so ideal for nights out. The facilities are all very modern and easy to access. The sports facilities in exeter are world class and incredible to play on. The student bar is a bit small but it's on campus so very convenient Medicine at exeter is very self directed so you have to do a lot of the work yourself which is good as I find that more engaging than sitting in lectures all the time. Also allows me to do more of the things I want to do like play sport. The city isn't too big but not too small so is easy to get around. It has a large range of shops and is all very picturesque and quant

University of Exeter review

(5)·By Lucy M·History· Jun 2023
I've had the most brilliant time at the university of Exeter. The history course has had a diverse range of assignments and areas to study, the staff are encouraging and have your best interests at heart. I've been able to take part in a range of extra curriculars such as student action for refugees. On top of this the campus and city are very walkable, and living in Devon is beautiful!

Computer Science, raduate

(5)·By Jamie G·Computing· Mar 2019
Really enjoyed it, got taught some basics about programming and the hardware and software of computers. It's my kind of thing so I decided to continue with it and now I graduated. I don't regret it at all, I also made some very close friends who I still talk to on a daily basis.

My first thought when I walked in was how clean it is. It didn't smell bad either. The room is nicely sized and came with everything I needed, I have no complaints.

The library is huge and has a large selection of books of every genre. Classrooms are tidy and are never usually left in a mess after lessons. Sport areas are great, I used them often.

I love computer science so I enjoyed everything about the course. It was entertaining because there was always something new I needed to learn. The lectures were perfect, I never got bored and I made sure to take notes and it helped a lot.

City is great, after moving here a couple years ago I have no complaints. There's everything I need up on the high street. People are usually really nice too, you don't run into many rude people which is a plus. I really enjoy living here!

Make sure to take a lot of notes because it's a lot to take in and learn. Can be overwhelming if you don't. Bringing a drink with you helps a lot too. It's a course that can be hard if not taken seriously, I found it hard myself but I really enjoyed it and I still gave it my all and ended up graduating.

University of Exeter

(5)·By Jessica B·History· Jun 2023
Exeter's campus is one of the main reasons I chose it as my first choice. It has really nice views and the buildings are very well funded so there's plenty of facilities. The humanities department is very good and the lecturers are extremely helpful with anything you might need. The accomodation is very nice, and good value for what you're paying for.

Marketing, Year 2

(5)·By Julia S·Marketing· Jul 2021
Freshers week was amazing. Every single night for the entire week, each club had a different themed event so there was plenty to choose from. The uni as well as the local town did a lot to welcome new students. I have had the opportunity to visit many friends at different accomodations, all of which were really nice and I never heard any complaints. All in face areas whether on or off campus. Library had endless resources and you can get help whenever you need it, all classrooms are fitted with the newest technology, sports facilities are up to date and have amazing machines and there are a loooooot of societies to choose from whether sporty or not. Student Union always keeps up to date with students across all matter whether academic or not. The lectures were amazing because some I got to experience in groups of 500 in big lecture theatres, and some in small classrooms of 30 where learning was more focused and creative. Had the Opportunity to be thought by some great and well known professors which made me feel special. City life is amazing, not only the town centre has everything you need in a walking distance, it is very beautiful with a lot of history itself, and the local restaurants and cafes are the best. The night life is amazing too, every night a couple of different clubs were open so there was never a time where you would be stuck at home bored.

Environmental Science, Graduate

(5)·By Keavy M·Environmental Science· Jul 2021
2 weeks It was really nice! The campus was beautiful. I lived on the top floor and had a great view. Could definetly tell you were studying near the coast. The facilities were brilliant. The campus was user friendly and very clean. It was quite a new campus and you could tell it was well funded. You could see that all the lecturers loved the field they were in. All assignments and tasks set were really enjoyable and didnt feel like work. I really loved my course. It was in a small town so very quiet. I loved it as we had access to the beach but also could go to the pub and clubbing if we wanted.

You'll have a great social life at Exeter

(5)·By max l·Asian Studies· Oct 2018
,The Exeter experience gives you beautiful surroundings and a great mixture of city and countryside life - the weather is actually lovely here too! I've really enjoyed how they teach here and thought the facilities were almost like an American-style campus. If you're into partying, you won't be disappointed, as there's always something on.

I never want to leave!

(5)·By megan j·Psychology· Jun 2023
As a small-town girl, who always wanted to stay at home and go to her local university, I naturally fell in love with The University of Exeter; The furthest possible uni from my home by the Scottish border.
Firstly finding the perfect course, offering so many clinical benefits over other generic psychology courses, followed by a quick Instagram search soon had me in love with Exeter, and set on studying at the University.
Over the past two years, not once have I felt alone or unsupported by the university with the countless safety, mental health and academic support services.
I honestly feel that I get to live in a movie, with gorgeous architectural buildings, hundreds of societies and activities every week and events like varsity, the summer garden ball and beach BBQs Exeter has it all.
The academic staff really do care about each individual student, with personal tutors, college well-being officers and Individual learning plans for students with extra challenges (such as dyslexia), I feel that I am supported throughout every stage in my degree and there is always support available if I need it.
