I've had a great experience so far. Good selection of societies, good Student Guild, lots of career services, good wifi. Pretty campus - love how close it is to Exmouth beach and cornwall. Plenty of opportunity to explore the beauty of the South West of England. Had no issues with teaching and have enjoyed my first and second year studying English. Plenty of opportunities to get involved in societies and meet likeminded people!
The clubs and societies have made me feel at home and included
Great University. The Cornwall campus is absolutely stunning, as beautiful as the Duchy.
The university and resources provided are very good
Very beautiful University in England .
The penryn campus and some departments are a lot worse at dealing with racist issues, also the SU did basically nothing for BHM. The Exeter & Falmouth ACS protested against their own SU and their President had to write a statement addressing the issues. Overall, if your black the chances of you experiencing racism is very high in Cornwall, particularly the Exeter Penryn campus. And when you report it the procedures in place suck.
it's not perfect but nothing is. most beautiful campus ever for sure, lots of mh support
I have loved my time at Exeter, especially the extracurricular work experience, sports clubs and societies that I have had the chance to get involved with!
Really am enjoying my time here as a student so far!
The university is amazing. I am an INTO student so I personally know less about the uni. But I find INTO super great with everything they are doing right now. Love you lots xx
The university is very good in itself, the way it's run and amount of facilities and societies, help and guidance available to students is impressive. One downgrade is that it's up hill but you get used to it
Good university but lacks student diversity
Good facilities, close to the town centre
Nothing to complain about. Great university.
A university full of vibrant students! Students here at the university are always on the move whether it be to lessons, to independent study or to societies. This is what gets me excited as I know that I am surrounded by students who are full of positive energy and good vibes. This definitely helps to keep me going and motivated enough to get through the intensity and speed of the academic work.
The medicine cause is too PBL-based. I personally prefer the traditional lecture-based approach.
Great teaching and such amazing views being surrounded by the countryside, there’s also so much to do in Exeter
There are a lot of places to you could study and also have a bit of fun. Love the atmosphere here
Good place to study for postgrads
Fantastic university - love my course and the facilities.
Really good university to be in
Lovely campus, with everything you need, and a brilliant university to be a part of
A good experience all round. Given the amount of hills, I certainly don't have to stress about leg day at the gym as much as I once did!
University of Exeter is like a dream come true, perfect student town for a student to be focused towards their work and also enjoy their student life. great career zone to help find employment.
Good University, the campus is really local to city centre and loads of facilities at campus
Exeter is a great university I feel it offers the full university experience: good range of challenging courses, many societies for almost anything you can think of, good campus facilities e.t.c The only issues I have had have been with timetabling consistently each term giving me classes that overlap. Considering the amount we pay I would at least like to be able to attend my classes! Though this is more an issue with the people in timetabling rather than the university itself I thought it worth mentioning. Other than that I have had an excellent time at Exeter and really engaged with some wonderful classes and lecturers.
High quality academic and social experience
Great Uni, loved my three years there. Would recommend!
The uni is great! So helpful and facilities are great! I do not like all the hills on campus though
The university offers modern campus facilities and plenty of conveniences.
It can be a little tricky to get used to.
Exeter uni is nice as they have so many societies and the professors are so kind as they always reply students email really fast and keen to answer students questions.
Exeter university has a great campus. The teaching staff are really good and the facilities on campus are good as well.
Brilliant place to study and get your degree. Beautiful campus and great facilities.
It is a good university with the good career sevice and facilities. I did not join any clubs so I do not know how it is.
A wonderful university environment
A good university with a various amount of facilities available.
Good experience, good facilities
Amazing uni overall with great services
Great uni, nice societies , good lecturers
Great university with lots of facilities. It is a Russell Group after all
A good university contains lots of service and help to student. Really can learn a lot in this university.
I've been living at Carrick View since September and have felt welcomed, supported, and at home the entire time! My room has really been thought out from a student perspective, which makes studying and living here easy and stress free. It's lovely and quiet where I am in the building, and all the staff are super friendly as well.
I love studying at Exeter. The perfect mix of fun, societies and clubs with a really high level education. I study business and french and have found the lecturers are seminar leaders to be mostly very helpful and attentive. Unlike a lot of universities, as a campus university it is so easy to socialise and make friends as everyone is on campus. I only have one online lecture a week which is incredible in comparison to my friends in bigger unis like Leeds or Bristol who have barely met their course mates as their lectures are almost entirely online. It is such a sociable uni and so easy to meet lots of people, and the stereotypes of people in Exeter are mostly untrue in my opinion. There are a lot of Surrey people here tho. I initially thought that the campus being further away from city would be an issue, but it is literally a ten minute walk. Unlike most other unis, all the main first year acoms are less than a fifteen min walk from campus and the same distance from town.
The university offers rich resources for a good understanding of the subjects. The faculties are supportive and the state of the art facilities for class and seminars are of remarkable standards.
Love it, on st lukes campus and it’s a really nice environment to be around.
so good i love it so much its so amazing
Nothing particularly to complain about, maybe the lectures are a bit too early in the morning for me to come consistently to, but I guess that's on me.
really beautiful campus with modern facilities
I don't have a lot to say; Exeter is a reasonably good school but I do feel like it lacks a bit diversity, and I don't feel too included as an international student.
Really modern facilities and lots of clubs and societies to get involved with. A very comfortable place to be
I love being in Exeter, the university is perfect for me, the facilities are great nothing to complain about really. Also the socials are a great way to meet people.
To talk about the university, an amazing university I have ever come across. This might sound silly but when I got the list of universities to shortlist them I don’t know why but all of a sudden after reading the name university of exeter I decided the I will be going to this particular university itself. And now I think I made a best choice. The campus is amazing, the faculties are like a best friends to us, they just don’t teach also they provide us all the sources. Campus is fully packed with events and other activities every now and then. There always something to learn from the campus. I m glad enough that I chose this university for my masters❤️
As a Drama student, I am not often required to visit the campus. But, from the times that I have been there, my experience has been great.
Lovely campus, lovely people. Really nice modern feel to it. Huge campus, really green. Course is great. Lecturers really good
Good facilities and lecturers, need more accommodation on campus though
The campus is very green, and a beautiful place to work. There are outstanding facilities in each department and a staff that are clearly striving for the best in every student.
Love the greenish surroundings of the uni.
The University's social side is thriving, many clubs and societies to join, many study spaces are full to the brim on campus, the library including! The study spaces are great to work in, ample opportunity to be comfortable at your own desk with a view. Although, a downfall is that the internet connection requires a password which you have to go to IT to find out, otherwise you will be logging into the wifi system every 20-40 minutes which is quite annoying. The Careers Service is great in offering lots of opportunities for talks and events to attend about CV writing and cover letter, but a little more help on one to one meetings talking about applications wouldn't go un-appreciated. Altogether however a lovely University that is supportive and thriving with opportunity.
very amazing I am dying from opportunity to study there
A good place for masters in data science
Absolutely love the uni I’m at - so glad I came here as it’s been the best two years so far.
The university is mainly great, with good facilities
Good rugby, unfortunately on the top of a hill.
A good uni to study at, a good range of courses as well
Great University amazing campus. Great facilities
the University is great the Societys are great
It’s good, I do physics and am part of the rugby society. There’s a lot of work in physics but manageable.
Beautiful campus where there is always something to do, whether it be listening to the grand piano playing in the forum or taking part in a society event. High standard of teaching and great 1:1 support when needed.
Ok, nothing special. Nice campus but other than than nightlife is poor and academically it’s on the decline as they don’t have any projects for the future.
No SU so after a sports game there isn’t really anywhere to go
Ggg . Vvv. .
I can't be bothered to right a full review right now , but overall nice campus and good uni
I love going to uni here I find that the WiFi can be very slow at times
Great uni with nice campus, knowledgeable lecturers
Very nice main campus with plenty of plants and greenery. Bit hilly
It’s a pain to get up the hill for every lesson and the location of it means that it’s a decent walk to get to the high street. At least they have buses
a good place to study here..........
Great lecturers, lots of study spaces available.
a gorgeous campus centred just north of the main city centre, which in itself is big enough to stay interesting, but small enough to feel a part of the community and a sense of belonging. A 20 minute train to the coast is something not to be taken for granted either
Very good - involves everyone and lots of societies to get involved with
There’s a reason why it’s one of the best! Amazing facilities, the greenery in Streatham is truly amazing.
Very green university with lots of facilities.
Haven’t had too much experience on campus because of covid, but seems okay
Amazing campus, great teachers and good studying atmosphere
I would highly recommend choosing the university of Exeter.
Good uni with a lot of socials and clubs
The taught part of my course doesn't start before Monday, 27th September. So far, my experience with SID and Students' Union has been great and I look forward to meeting people on my course on Monday.
Good uni :) care for their students
Despite COVID circumstances I enjoyed my time at the University of Exeter.
It's a good university but covid has caused the facilities to decrease.
Love everything about Exeter university. Professors, career fairs, societies..everything was on high standards
Amazing Uni with a beautiful campus. Facilities available are excellent with town being only a walk away! Teaching is very professional with helpful staff!
I had a great three years at Exeter. Although there is room for improvement in the careers services, they were always proactive towards and responsive to student needs.
Excellent University facilities with great support from staff. More could have been done to support students grades throughout Covid however.
Very good staff and faculty on campus.
Uni has been good online this year. The teaching was delivered very nicely. There are many opportunities and things to do at Exeter.
I think uni has been good online this year
The lecturers from Exeter have helped me throughout my degree - always there to listen and give good advice
Great place to stay whilst at uni. Clean and comfortable!
Haven’t been here much due to the restrictions that were put in place however from the handful of times I’ve been here I’ve had a positive experience
Really enjoyable expereince, the university has tried to provide everything at the same quality
I regret coming to this university very much. It lacks sufficient support and usually does not provide advice, but only follows the rules and procedures. Students have no chance to be guided to visit the campus in a deeper way. Even so, tuition fees have not been reduced.
Great university with a very nice campus!
Nice campus facilities, great clubs and societies!
The university has a grand campus, with many stores near it. In a central location therefore everything is walking distance.
Best university for research! Especially lovely green campuses.
Excellent campus in the United Kingdom
Good first year, looking forward to the rest.
Very clean and well-kept university with so many spaces to sit and study etc
best experience , helpful staff great resources
University of Exeter has met expectations I did not even have before. Half of the lecturers for my course (Sports and Exercise Medical Science) were very knowledgable. The St Luke and Streatham campuses are not too far from the city centre. I enjoyed the societies (Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu). They allowed me to meet people from different backgrounds. My only complaint is the University Community Mental Health Team. I had 5 sessions with them for my Mixed Anxiety and Depressive Disorder. It was very unhelpful as the nurse was always unprepared and seemingly inattentive.
I love St Luke’s Campus- it has a great feeling to it, a fantastic study space!
I enjoyed the University of Exeter very much! The campus is beautiful, the people are very friendly and helpful.
I was studying remotely, so no experience at all from campus .
The campus is stunning, and the teachers are very gentle. Although there is no way to teach offline, I still had a good time.
Outstanding education. Can stay connected via social media.
Fantastic University, courses are great and couldn't recommend more.
Very good university with excellent campus
Has been good but COVID has prevented me from having a proper experience.
The University of Exeter is great and the lectures are very approachable. The facilities are good.
They don’t teach very well as I expected. Lots of self learning required.
Good University, Clean and lots of spaces to study and be social.
Covid meant that I didn't really spend much time on Campus
Hard to give a full review as have only been on campus a handful of times, however careers team have been very useful so far regarding industrial placements.
University of Exeter is an amazing university! The staff are extremely supportive, and I am enjoying the course!
haven’t had much experience on campus as everything is online and security is tough
My experience at Exeter has been great so far! I have no complaints, I haven’t experienced it to the fullest extent due to COVID but despite this I have still really enjoyed my first year
Because of COVID I have barely been on campus this year. The times I have been there it has been fine but the only reason I have been going to campus this year was for sports.
Enjoyed it and the campus is beautiful. The teaching is generally good but covid was terribleformy student experience.
Location is great and convenient
Really lovely campus and great clubs however I haven’t really used the careers services but can’t say they are very helpful
The best uni experience I could ask for!
Till now, I've not experenced many campus life due to the lockdown.
Since I arrived on my first open day, the campus was a big selling point. I feel at home there and just has a friendly vibe
offers a lot of facilities, could improve it's internet connection and projectors( really bad projectors)
I am happy to be a student at university of Exeter
Good university but there never seems enough space on campus which can be frustrating. WiFi is good but will keep cutting off. There are over 200 socities to choose from which is nice
Good teaching quality and management during lockdown
The location of the university is far away from the city, which is very suitable for study. The teachers and staff are friendly and helpful, and the school facilities are complete.
I’ve enjoyed my time at Exeter. Excellent facilities and responsive careers service. Lots of variety in societies and good internet across campus. COVID put a dampener on the societies, but that’s not the unis fault. I have never really interacted with the union but I hear they are ok.
I love my school so much! I like every class! My life here is more perfect than I ever imagined!
Not the university experience I was expecting because of Covid. Would say the university is average. Could improve on student relations and communication. Often seems that the university management is out of touch with the student base.
It’s a pretty campus and you get a nice walk to the campus
The university is great, the campus is beautiful
Staffs are helpful. There will be a regular update from uni or from student guild so you will know what is happening or what happen next. Various societies hold loads of events. So definitely will enjoy the uni life here.
University of exeter - great support for well-being
A perfect school, excellent teachers, allows students to learn a lot. Beautiful natural environment makes people happy.
Nice services, good equipments, nice environment
Great higher education experience with friends from around the world and well-rounded scholars/professors
Had such a great time studying in Exeter, meeting great people and getting to study at a brilliant university!
Evething is supberb and above expectation!!
It’s a good uni, however Exeter as a place is smaller than a lot of cities. If you like the vibe of seeing people you know often, it’s good. Close to beaches too.
This University is really beautiful and I like that it’s close to the city and lots of shops. There are lots of courses available to students which means there is a course for everyone
Love the societies and it’s just a lot of fun, very happy with my choice
Absolutely excellent university
It’s a great university with great facilities.
Lovely campus and facilities. Due to covid this year, I have been unable to use much of it but am excited to do so in the future!
Many support during COVID. The university offers free COVID test for all staff and students
Comfort is very good, the bed is very soft, very tired;Iron Bridge each room has a sofa, very soft and comfortable.Sound insulation is also very good, very quiet, can not hear the sound of other rooms.The style of the whole furniture looks very comfortable.There are many plants on the opposite side of the window. There will be white flowers in February and March. When the wind blows, the petals fall down.
It’s difficult for me to rate the aspects of the university because due to COVID I haven’t spent a lot of time on campus. As far as I can tell so far the societies are diverse and communicate with freshers very well. Same with the careers service- revaluation emails for student jobs etc. I haven’t personally heard a lot from students union or what they’re up to, but they handled issues with grading due to covid very well.
Exeter has been great so far, everyone friendly and beautiful campus
Exeter is a good place, but with its limitations. Exeter has lost something about its self that many universities have maintained through COVID. I hope Exeter can rebuild its reputation as a great university in the future
The uni is great. The staff is so supportive, the campus is amazing, the facilities are well equipped, everyone is very supportive and the societies are really fun
Have not been able to access a lot of what the uni provides this year but have enjoyed what I have been able to do!
Happy to choose Exeter :) The faculty is amazing and always available to help. I believe if COVID would not have been there the experience would have been more amazing.
Havent really been on campus just had online teaching which has not been the greatest
very nice good and convenient. And it is very close to the university.
It’s a good university with a nice social life but as fun as you will hope
The University is great at sorting out career opportunities and the campus is great with very good facilities
Very happy to live here, the environment is very good, and close to the city centre. Most important thing is our receptionists are very friendly!!
Exeter is one of a good universities that come with good location and nature. There a lot of experts, good professors and staffs who always support the learners
Good facility and good education background, With excellent teacher group
The university campus is really nice, however, it's a disappointing place to study your PhD. The lecturers are unhelpful they just scratching each other backs, regardless of students rights; it's a trap try to avoid it. I am happy that I am not there anymore.
Although the university campus is really nice, it has been a really disappointing place to study. The lecturers are chosen based on the quality of their research but definitely not their teaching, some of my lecturers are great but lots of them are just not good at lecturing despite being so intelligent. There is a disgraceful lack of student support with mental health, the isolation of covid 19 and other issues I have had with my degree. The university campus security are rude and even violent towards students (https://thetab.com/uk/exeter/2020/11/03/exeter-freshers-and-campus-security-injured-after-incident-at-holland-hall-last-night-49760 an event I genuinely witnessed) and very vindictive. The university nightlife is pretty terrible so if thats something you care about go elsewhere. Overall I am now left in debt and hating being here I would not recommend the university to anyone.
The best thing about Exeter is definitely the campus, it’s always so lively and a fun place to be
Exeter is great. Facilities are some of the best and campus is so green and beautiful
A Russell group University, a university which tops the student satisfaction levels list almost every year. Great faculty.
While my personal tutor is very supportive the university's response to COVID was quite poor. Our recorded remote lectures are not the best value compared to our course fees, there are lack of additional support and resources online. There are a lot of IT issues with ELE and lack of tutor groups.
Streatham Campus is nice, especially the forum and the library (if you can get a seat). The university themselves are terrible at organisation, especially for picking new modules or helping you solve issues. Some societies are a bit pricey to join, especially the sports ones, but mostly are worth it. The lecturers are mostly very good.
WARNING Do not booking Accommodation with Exeter one or Amber Student they are Not Refunding Students during a COVID-19
@ my international students, STAY AWAY from this university. They consistently hike up prices for int students AND the support for international students is deplorable. I cannot believe they would be so heartless to spike up fees twice as much during a pandemic where people are struggling.
the university has so many opportunities available to all students.
Such a fun and challenging experience!
Although lots of my time at Exeter has been brilliant and I wouldn't trade the friends I have made for anything the academic support is absolutely awful. The staff are unsympathetic, feedback vague and contradictory. I went to my tutor to ask for more detailed feedback or examples of how I could have improved my work and he was unable to go into more detail but considering the mark I was given there must have been a lot there to improve. If you're going to spend £9,250, spend it on somewhere that actually cares about its students. Exeter only cares about it's reputation and the lecturers are definitely chosen based on their research rather than the quality of their teaching which would be fine but again for the amount of money you would be better off elsewhere.
living and studying in exeter is good，everything you found here will be a joy to your life
really bad stuff，enter rooms for no reason，Hanna trading tenants very bad，and looks for trouble，charge extra payment. very bad Wi-Fi. bad security，no CCTV. bad noise isolation between floors.
Exeter University has been a joy to study in for three years. I couldn’t have asked for a better undergraduate experience.
Great campus, the facilities are kept in good conditions and there are many clubs/societies to choose from for whatever hobbies you may have.
Great teaching and campus facilities. A huge range of societies.
The campus is really green and nice to walk around. Although the hills are a killer to walk up! The ram is a great little pub on campus but it would be nice to have another campus bar to hang out in!
A brilliant university with excellent teaching and lots of student support. The student community really makes the experience, with fantastic student-led societies and events to take part in.
Nice University for people who do not mind living in a small city. Has great facilities. Lots of societies to join and keep busy.
You get out of university what you put into it, I would really recommend joining a sports team or society. And if you are looking for first year accommodation, I would recommend staying on campus.
The uni is nice and clean, the staffs are friendly
The University of Exeter has excellent facilities. Had my course been less time-consuming, I would have taken the opportunity to do more sport and societies. The only two things I found to be problematic were: 1. The student services team is slow, probably because they are understaffed, but also because their processes are poorly thought through. I expected a higher standard from a Russell Group university in this regard; having studied at undergraduate level with a non-Russell Group university, I was surprised when these processes were not nearly as good as my former university. 2. Student loans are released termly by Student Finance England. However, the University of Exeter seem to think it is reasonable to expect their tuition fee payments to come in per semester; so in two instalments, rather than the three they come in. As such, you have to apply to Student Services to get this changed; it just seems nonsensical. Overall, I enjoyed my time studying at the University of Exeter.
University was fine; Falmouth (Glasney) campus accommodation was awful.
There are so many clubs you can join and you'll meet some amazing people along the way! There is good wifi around the campus and lots of laptops available in the library and upstairs booths.
Good university and it has a good reputation. I have really enjoyed my course
An inclusive university with a wide array of societies available from sports clubs to subject related societies. Thoroughly enjoyed my first year and can’t wait for the years to come.
I have just finished my first year of university and have really enjoyed myself. Im doing a straight Economics course that is managed well with constant feedback and information. I have also not been affected significantly be strikes which other universities have. However, the Students union isn't great when compared to other universities such as cardiff and bath, and there are only really 3 clubs, but this isn't too bad as 2 of those are actually very good nights out and are always packed.
Great uni! Loads of food outlets and study areas on campus
The university is extremely inviting and welcoming and the lecturers on my course (Medicine) are so committed to what they do and to making us well rounded future doctors. There’s always loads to do in our albeit it somewhat limited free time and I throughly enjoy being a part of all my societies
The campus is very beautiful. So many trees and flowers. People there are friendly and kind . But I met a lecturer who can’t admit his mistake and gave wrong marks to almost all of my programme.
Good University. Very good facilities. Lovely area.
The campus services were actually great! I really benefitted from clubs and societies, which were beautifully organised and welcoming. I found really useful also the career service, which helped me to find a casual job for the term!
Convenient system for students from abroad. Fast response from student support team.
Great experiences at studying here.
Top university with many amazing facilities
Excellent facilities, good communication. ELE and iExeter could be improved
University is absolutely as good as expected, facilities and societies offered are amazing.
A great university if you find your niche and are focused. It is very much a party uni with a vibrant social life. The university is academically superb, but you'll only know that if you attend classes (attend your classes kids--it's really not that hard). The facilities are incredibly nice and the university is there to help you with anything you need.
It’s a really good University.
The quality of teaching and careers services were okay, but the support system at the University is shockingly bad. While I was a student there, they condoned a very serious bullying and stalking episode and provided no support whatsoever after I raised my concerns. I wish I left.
I am a Master student in Computer Science and I love everything about University of Exeter .High quality teaching provided by stuff with a strong academic background , intellectualy stimulating courseworks and nice facilities are amongst the few from the many things I appreciate here.
Good university with gool facilities.
Really good university and good facilities
Feel free to get access to the professors and achieve quit lot of assistance from them. Students are kind and friendly. And uni is surrounded by all kinds of restaurants that fill students with convenience and happiness.
Exeter uni is a great place to study. The staff are excellent and the campus is a really nice place to be.
Uni is so good, the grounds are really nice and green
Really good uni, so happy with my choice
Really nice uni and all students are good
Good Uni but it is a bit far out of town
Good university really enjoy it
Great university with fantastic staff and lots of resources available.
Exeter is such a good campus！
Everything is alright. Although the WiFi is not very good, I do not use it very much.
kind teachers good study atmosphere I love the environment of the University but I do not like the weather here
So far so good, I enjoy everything
Nice campus nice management nice classmates
The university of Exeter is very good. The campus is very beautiful with perfect teaching facilities. The teachers are also very kind and patient with the students. Recommend everyone to study!
good university with good teacher
really good uni glad i chose it
lovely university with lovely wild animals and lecturers. the library is excellent. while the wifi there sometimes dropped while I used it.
Everything is good. I’m satisfied with everything.
Great university with a large variety of societies.
A lovely university which keeps trying to find ways to further improve its services and facilities.
I think the study rooms and group meeting rooms are not enough. convenience store should be needed near the accommodations
nice campus！nice experience of study!
the university is very beautiful and the teachers are very kind
Really good uni - one of the top 10
Comfortable environment, beautiful, professional teachers
Basically good experiences here，a silent small city to study and live in
Everything is good and I am really satisfied with the life here.
Love Exeter Uni, it has given me the platform to excel
Good university, high quality education and a beautiful campus
University of Exeter is really nice
Good University with great reputation in UK. Quiet beautiful and friendly.
The campus is way too green and too big. The library is small but many other places you can study. The food provides is limit...
Great university for international students with motivated and helpful lecturers.
Not a great experience in Cornwall- I regret going to such a small campus rather than a bigger city one. Really don’t feel like exeter Uni has an identity there. Also the staff at the Student Desk in Peter Landon are so rude!!
Pretty good already. Very happy here.
My experience of the University of Exeter has been generally good. I find the wellbeing and careers services outstanding. My course (BA History) has been mostly enjoyable, and I have made lots of friends. I do feel more study spaces are needed.
Really good UNI beautiful location and people are so friendly
Exeter Uni is brilliant, I love being a part of the netball society and love the social side. Despite what you might here Exeter has a great night out and the city is beautiful.
I’ve only just started so there’s not much to say, but so far it’s been pleasant.
Wifi can be a bit dodgy. Careers service are amazing and have events each week and so many opportunities.
Such an amazing university with a homely feel where you can't leave your room without seeing someone you know. Couldn't recommend it more
Finished my three year undergrad at Exeter this summer and I miss it so much! I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to come to this Uni. The campus has got a luxurious vegetation and is nice to walk around, the town is reasonably sized (not too little I promise) and full of nice coffee shop and weekly events (at the Phoenix, or Thursday's Farmer's market near the cathedral for example). Nightlife is getting better and better and great artists&dj s now come very regularly to Exeter! Also each year 's freshers' week were full of interesting activities to take part in (Satursday's freshers fair is crazy packed tho). To conclude I miss it so much I cannot but recommend that you go and have a look for yourself ! I remember walking back from campus in the evening with an incredible sky and such a picturesque scenery as well as bird's singing. You won't regret it!
Love the uni here there are plenty of clubs and societies but given its position as sporting uni it can be difficult to get into some sports
This university seriously needs to pay for its OWN free shuttle bus to and from town for students. D bus is unreliable and is often slowed down by non uni passengers making people late for lectures. More shelters outside when raining would also be useful. Sports facilities need to be cheaper given the price of the fees we pay to study at university, and would certainly encourage students to take on healthier lifestyle. There needs to be more dedicated study spaces and less 'deliberately' overpriced on campus food that milks students. Please stop people walking their dogs on campus because some of them don't pick up their dog poo.
I have just completed my first year at Exeter University and I absolutely loved it. Campus/Facilities: I stayed in the St. Germans (sometimes called just Rowe house but they're not the same!) and literally could not have asked for better. I heard that they're going to tear St Germans down to build more blocks like Lafrowda :( i guess its not cost-efficient to have 36 ppl in a block, with 6 ppl per flat with double beds, en-suite, big kitchen + a nice living room area w bean bags in each flat! But it was nice for us at least so get in while you can. Gym is also new and super fresh, it can get quite busy but there are a lot of different cardio machines and stuff so its usually fine. actual campus is also nice and modern. Club/societies: there is smt for everyone, so def get involved in at least one or two, makes the year a lot of fun and you always have events to look forward to throughout the year, exeter is quite a small town after all so you need to spice your life up a bit!
Campus is alright but one thing to take note is the steep hill sometimes making it hard for students especially raining day
I’ve spent some of the best years of my life here!
Some staff are dedicated to helping you.. however, others make up their own teaching and referencing styles so you can never do it correctly! This is done by a few of my lecturers which all make up their own styles.. therefore it's affecting my grades. I have tried speaking to various people and staff about this but supposedly Exeter university all stick to one referencing style - so either way you can't win.
Truly dedicated Staff and professors plus a wonderful environment!
I am so glad with my choice of Exeter! The facilities are great, and there are so many social and academic spaces on campus! I love it!
Fantastic uni in beautiful settings in Devon
Fantastic university, which holds and develops the brightest minds.
I moved to Exeter from another Russell Group university and I have nothing but praise for Exeter. The university has been a great support to me in my studies and the support provided for mental health is exceptional. The campus is simply incredible and a very relaxing place to spend time even during stressful exam season. There is a great range of societies on offer and there is a very friendly atmosphere on campus. Lectures are excellent and some of the staff are internationally renowned experts in their field (I study Law). My only wish would be for a more diverse student body. The decision I made to move to Exeter was the best decision of my life, please don't hesitate to visit!
Awesome uni to study at with some lovely people. Unreal campus and facilities.
Unreal student experience. Quality teaching. Lovely people, staff and students. Just an incredible place to study.
Very satisified with exeter uni. Great staff and people, and also easy to have a great social life in addition to focusing on the academics
Incredible campus, such a beautiful working environment! Student Guild staff are generally very helpful, certain members are especially. The university itself is a mixed bag - certain professors are exceptionally passionate, dedicated and considerate to their students, whereas others are clearly more concerned with their own ego than the welfare and progression of their students. The overall feel of the university is extremely bureaucratic and gives the impression that it’s primary focus is to be ran as a business for making money and boosting the reputation of its senior staff members and not the students under its care.
pretty good all around, awesome city and campus and great lecturers and labs
10/10, hands down best year of my life.
Couldnt have asked for a better university, the campus spirit is like a family! Everyone loves it here. Would not change anything.
Perfect, flawless, wow, enjoyable
The university of Exeter has achieved the right balance of high-tec modern buildings and old, classy ones. The gardens around Reed Hall are stunning as are many of the other green places around campus. The society scene is vibrant and diverse and you really get a feel for Exeter’s ‘bleed green’ culture.
Our campus is absolutely stunning and I have all the resources I need!! The WiFi sometimes has blips but that’s not something I can expect to be perfect
I met the most Incredible people and had the best time with all the Societies I joined, especially the scandic soc
The best years of my life have been spent here
Such an incredible place to learn would recommend to anyone!
Where to start? Best experience imaginable! Amazing people, lectures, course content and support, never a dull moment (and even if there was that would be because you didnt make an effort to engage in the uni!)! I don’t want to leave
Absolutely Peng would uni again
Pretty spectacular university in my opinion
The Cornwall campus feels like it’s trying to be a mini main campus when really it should be celebrating all the things it has (the beach, Cornish countryside, pasties, etc) that main campus doesn’t
I studied History at the University, and worked at the Exeter campus for two years after graduation.The courses are of high quality, and the University is able to retain a high number of world-leading academics. The courses are well designed and stretch your ability. Many of the History modules were structured around the lecturer's current research, and this is the same in many programmes. The campus is lovely, very green, and with lots of facilities. Exeter city is big enough for a University town, and is in a perfect location for the Coast, Dartmoor and not too far from Bristol. Having worked at the University, I have seen how dedicated staff members are, and a lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes that students don't see. There are hundreds of student societies, and volunteer groups - honestly, and cater to a wide range of audiences. Exeter has a middle-class reputation, but there is much more than this.
Great course, great town, great atmosphere abd helpful staff
Absolutely incredible first year, students and staff alike were so helpful and friendly. The amount of societies and clubs on offer means there is something for everyone.
I have just finished first year in Exeter and have felt so welcomed. Whether it's academics, sport or social life I couldn't ask for anything better.
I couldn’t have asked for a better first year at Exeter, and I look forward to seeing what the next 2 years hold!
Excellen joihczafjmnb tuokadv gio,bàn
Highest tree to student ratio, what more can you say? Brilliant campus, nice and friendly staff
Peng ting uni, 10/10 would degree again
The campus is amazing, people are all fantastically friendly and the societies are top class
The best university in the southwest
The campus is gorgeous, there's tones of seating space, there's a million places to get food, and the library has every book ever. Everything is new. 11/10
Exeter offers competitive and rigorous courses that are relevant to the real world and I feel that the skills I have acquired will benefit me dramatically in the future. The career zone offers great support with 1:1 meetings and reviews on CVs, Application and advice on the interview process for jobs; this helped me get my first work experience placement during the Easter holidays. The campus is very green and modern, the town offers great amenities and it’s not too far from the beach! I’ve had a great time.
If you want a Uni full of rich Southerners who view themselves as superior to everyone else, then this is for you. Going to this uni genuinely ruined my life.
I could not imagine going to another University. Exeter has everything, beautiful campus, nice city, near the seaside. Very organized and well run. Spend a lot of efforts helping students find a job when the graduate. Incredible facilities, and one of the best sports complex of any university in the U.K.
Racist uni. Most of the Reviews are fake and written by the Uni themselves
Racist students. I’d stay away from here. Only action is taken if news gets out to media
Great University, beautiful campus, and dedicated teaching staff.
Arguably one of the most beautiful campus's in the world, amazing energy and great friends for life.
Great Campus and Library. I enjoyed my experience.
Probably the best university in the world I f****** love Exeter
I like my university and I like learning,
I loved Exeter, ha I'm probably biased I've only been there but having visited other friends at their unis I felt lucky to go home to Exeter. Its such a nice campus and everyone knows everyone. The city is small b and the night life isn't so good but it does mean that when you're out everyone is there, like one big family.
Wonderful campus and the Forum Is very good, good eateries etc. Teaching is no better than your average University despite what you may hear! Exeter it's self is a lovely historic city, lovely Quay area. Lots of places to eat. Plenty of bars/pubs. Good shopping centre.
library is 24/7, The campus is beautiful and spacious. The campus forum is in a central location. There is also a student pub, Costa, Pret and natwest on campus which is really convenient. Very wide range of sporting and social clubs available, many of the sporting clubs compete to a high standard. Lots of career help and advice available as well as student buisness partnerships if you're interested in obtaining some. There is free wifi all over campus too. The only negative is a small lack of diversity in food choices but thats more Exeter in general rather than just the univeristy.
Nice new campus; societies could be promoted better though
Very good environment and the blend of modern and nature. Lots of clubs to choose from, no one will be left out. Really. Sports facilities are fantastic and cant wait for the new heated pool coming this summer 2017!
Saying this university has third world standards in all facilities is an understatrement. Horrible place indeed!
I went to Exeter 2012-15. Had a fantastic time in the city. It has earnt its rah image but there's no shortage of good people either. I was in lgbt soc and joined AU jiu Jitsu. Managed to live pretty close to campus - both 2nd and 3rd in mount pleasant area.
A nice campus, very green, nice people, nice atmosphere and great facilities
Wi-Fi is rubbish in accommodation
Everything is great about Exeter, haven't had any complaints to date
The campus is really pretty and people are really lovely. Toby, Alec, Tristan, and Harry are leading the Student Guild really well!
The forum is beautiful, the grounds are beautiful, everywhere is beautiful just be prepared for hills.
All good so far. As expected. Easy to get about
Penryn Campus, part of the University of Exeter offers amazing facilities and services on a small campus which has a friendly and great feel about it... not to mention the amazing location!!
I like my campus. It's green. The lack of diversity is worrying though
Friendly atmosphere and loads of great stuff happening
Top amazing university to go to.
Campus facilties and societies are varied, and whatever you do, it'll be here.
Internet keeps turning off when using it. Campus is beautiful. Buildings - except physics, which is an eyesore - are all new, and really nice looking. The union doesn't have anything to do with me. It's too concerned about ethnic minorities and diversity. I feel very unwelcome as a white male. Failing to allow the economics society to form, and closing down the music school, was unforgivable. The clubs and societies are reasonably diverse, but the music school is not very good. It doesn't encourage people to play, and Kay House two miles away, too far to carry instruments. There are a lot of societies, but most of them aren't worth a damn. They aren't much interesting.
Probably the best university in the world.
Uni Wifi is painfully temperamental, can take 20mins to finally get signed in.
Amazing uni! Only been here two weeks but I already feel settled in. Like a home away from home
Beautiful, green, big, friendly, smart, new!
I've had no problems so far, and when you do there's a great support network lined up to help. The campus isn't too big but is filled with lots of green space so your walk in is quite scenic. The Forum has pretty much everything you need with banks, shops and eateries in a modern looking building.
Beautiful campus, amazing and wide socials, friendly people and enthusiastic lecturers! Most consistent and reliable uni I've seen
Internet sometimes drops out. Facilities are new, easily accessible & have everything you need without stepping off campus.
If you want to come to a lively atmosphere that not only focuses on your education as well as your enjoyment, this is the uni for you.
very nice campus, clean tidy and very friendly
Love this campus - its so green with trees everywhere, its not too far from the city and has good transport links. The hills surrounding the campus are hardwork but great for your fitness levels! Excellent sports facilities and very supportive SU and Careers Team.
great university- a very pleasant campus!
Wonderful university. Very well run and managed, not to mention the most beautiful campus in the U.K.
Very modern and student-friendly! competent and efficient staff
the BEST university in the world. Especially Penryn Campus.
Just finished my first year at Exeter, has been the best year of my life, despite the weather, Exeter is a lovely place to study and live, the campus feels so alive and have met so many wonderful friends. Socities are excellent as are facilities throughout the uni. So glad I turned down UCL & KCL!
Exeter is the best university. Almost went to Oxford and so glad I didn't, absolutely could not be happier!
Great place to study and have fun!
Exeter was the best University I could have wished for. The campus is beautiful, the teaching is excellent and the people made my University experience unlike no other. I'm so sad that I'm graduating as I had the best three years of my life here. I would recommend the University to anyone.
Exeter university is probably the best in the world
So glad I chose Exeter after my first year and already dreading leaving when I graduate. It has everything you could want in a university in a city with everything you could need within walking distance. Amazing campus and amazing people.
Having completed my first year at UoE, I am extremely happy with the University! This includes the campus facilities, teaching and social life. Come to Exeter!
Lovely campus. Very green. Great lecturers. Great city. Nice location. Great societies.
Possibly the best uni in the world
Great uni and student experience
I have found Exeter to be the perfect university for me. Academically, tutors care about you and know you as an individual, and the standard of teaching is superb. Socially, the student union organise brilliant events and everyone at the university is friendly. The atmosphere is lovely, the facilities are great, and I shall treasure every moment at this university.
Exeter has great facilities, such a relaxing environment with opportunities everywhere!
Best year of my life! Amazing university!
Amazing uni, my course is great and the experience so far couldn't be better. Well done Exeter
I'm going into my third year at Exeter and have had the time of my life.
Amazing lecturers and beautiful campus.
An incredible university, both academically and from a personal development perspective.
The facilities in Exeter are unbelievable, great study spaces, loads of places to grab some food and fantastic for sport. The societies are so welcoming and incredibly inclusive. With a huge variety, they cater for everyone and there are always opportunities to get involved. Being next to such a lovely city and only a few miles from the beach comes in handy during post exam periods. My only criticism would be of the prices of facilities in the university. The gym membership is extortionate and the cost of joining a sports team, which often you won't be picked for unless you're friends with the captians, is almost disrespectful. Besides that little moan at the end, I could not much complain about Exeter.
Beautiful campus, the forum is great. More constructive feedback on assessments and knowing exactly what lecturers expect from you in essays and exams would be good, but I guess that's similar at many universities. Plenty of societies to get involved in, with great facilities across campus.
Fabulous academic and social life
Brilliant courses, friendly staff, lots of societies and a beautiful modern campus. Can't ask for more!
Such an amazing university, so many opportunities accessible to everyone. The friendly atmosphere makes you feel right at home. Facilities are excellent, for example the gym is a really great place to let off some steam/ get fit with a range of classes and personal trainers available.
Exeter is a great university with lots of different backgrounds, I am from the north from a under privileged background mixing in with students who have parents as CEO's in companies and they are all friends as they all respect each other and how they have got into university.
Beautiful and modern campus with a good range of places to eat and a shop which stocks a huge variety of things! town is lovely and accommodation whether halls or private is very good!
Amazing university in terms of facilities, opportunities and the student community. One of the only issues is that it's so far away from anywhere else!
I've had the best 3 years of my life at Exeter. I love it so much I'm going back next year to do a masters!
The most friendly relaxed university, excellent social life and it's in a beautiful part of the country
Exeter Uni could not feel more like home. The lecturers are outstanding, the campus is lively, friendly and very beautiful and there are so many societies to get involved with. I wish I could stay here forever.
Going to Exeter was probably the best decision I have ever made. Many of the amazing people I met in my halls in first year and through societies are now my best friends. My course was very interesting, well structured and staff was extremely helpful. I would say campus has a very family-like atmosphere, which is something I loved. I would highly recommend Exeter to all prospective students!
Exeter is an incredible experience of community and friendship. It is beautiful and often sunny, allowing students to fully enjoy the campus and the surrounding area. There is also a great variety of courses which are very interesting and a lot of nice and helpful professors.
Everything about UoE oozes modernity, confidence and pride. The new buildings demonstrate Exeter's advancement into the future and its desire to provide its students with everything they need for a degree in the new 21st century. Societies both academic and vocational are well-run, charismatic and thoughtful, encouraging everyone to participate and have fun. Extra-curricular activities such as help with careers is easy to find, use and learn from, providing vast resources to those who truly need it. In essence, UoE has set the standards for pedigree in the university world.
Exeter is such a welcoming place to be
Amazing uni with great opportunities and great people. Always willing to help you with any problem.
The university offers amazing opportunities and provides amazing standards of education and enjoyment
Great Uni experience with such a beautiful campus. It also has the best Yak.
Could not be enjoying Exeter more - huge range of societies, beautiful campus, quality teaching and lively city centre.
The campus is beautiful, the people are amazing and the courses are super flexible so you can study whatever you want. Plus, the facilities are incredible, the sports and society opportunities are endless and the university offers more advice and support for you than you can shake a stick at.
Wouldn't imagine being anywhere else.
Best year of my entire life. I wish I could go and do it all again.
Most amazing campus, amazing helpful staff and great course content - I absolutely love it here!
A fabulous time compared to my old uni.
Fantastic student union, amazing sports facilities. Although could do with a decent swimming pool.
Honestly the best University in the world! Beautiful campus, amazing staff, very student orientated, so many opportunities within and outside of your department. Did I mention the campus is amazing? They bring in puppies and micro pigs during exam season to relieve stress...I mean c'mon! I have never heard anybody talk about their University the way Exeter us Exeter students do! Love this city and University! Exetah forever!!
A beautiful city with wonderful people.
Incredible uni, whatever your personality you will love it here!
Sports facilities are improving enormously!
My chief complaint is with the business school, who systematically sabotage their own students' degrees with woefully under-prepared lecturers who are chosen for the quality of their research and not their ability to teach any quantity of their area of supposed expertise. 90% of my lecturers have been spectacularly incompetent. Inaccurate and unseen exam topics are another issue, with 4 stages of complaints being reached, still nothing has been done about it. If you want to go to exeter business school, think very very hard and decide not to go.
Best uni going, beautiful campus, great people
Exeter is an amazing place to study: one can make the most of those beloved university years
Exeter is an amazing university full of opportunities both on a professional and on a social level! The community aspects mean you are able to meet a large variety of people and make friends from around the world!
Absolutely amazing, have loved my first year, couldn't think of a better place to be
Great university with a good social scene and life
My experience on the Penryn Campus so far has been excellent, I love the area mostly due to friendly locals, lots to do and a decent night out. The facilities are great although in busier rooms it gets hella sweaty. Halls were much nicer than alot of the places I looked at and really good value too. The teaching staff on my course have been really good, entertaining and obviously knowledgeable, they were really helpful and most of them actually knew my name which was impressive with a course of 200+. This review has been a bit ravey but I love everything about the university of Exeter and would highly recommend it to anyone.
A really fun university with great teaching and facilities
Despite a very difficult start at Exeter due to being placed in a postgrad international students halls Which made my first year a struggle! However as time has gone on I've found my feet and the last term of third year has been the best yet so I'll be finishing on a high
Amazing sport facilities and friendly atmosphere. The SU is new and spacious. However not many places to sit in the library at busy times.
My first year at Exeter has been one of the best of my life. Both campuses are incredible and the environment of the university is welcoming and safe. With a city full of character and a university full of opportunities, Exeter is one of the best universities to attend in the UK.
Been at Exeter Uni for 2 years now and I've loved every minute of it
A lot of pressure is put on career opportunities, there are lots of different societies. Internet is a bit temperamental but there is a good democratic student union. However the standard of teaching is quite average and the events are focused on select groups, it's hard to fit in if you're not sporty.
Great university, amazing facilities and beautiful campus.
Campus is beautiful! There's a wide range of societies and sports but it's not 100% inclusive. Career support is great as long as you are proactive about it. Student union is quite small and needs more awareness. Wifi is good but can be a bit temperamental.
Exeter offers the best in every single respect. It has a beautiful campus but the centre of town is a short walk away. There is a huge range of societies and sports clubs to join. You are never short on support on either an academic level or a personal level. Your needs are always looked after! My experience at Exeter has been unbelievably rewarding and enjoyable. I cannot imagine that I could have grown so much as an individual, learnt so much as a student and had so much fun as a person anywhere else.
One of my lecturers is a PhD student who cares more about looking good to his superiors and colleagues than he does about giving us a good education. Overall, the support has been very good though.
Probably the best university in the world
Students union is not exactly "bringing prices down" orientated, however the university it fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone but the biggest party animals, as Exeter is in no way big for its nights out...
This uni will leech your money by any means possible. It is a heartless company that takes in idealistic young men and women and turns out Exeter rahs with degrees. Come for the campus, stay for the women.
just needs more working space on campus. Past 12 it is impossible to find somewhere to work
Settling into Exeter University is so easy; with its beautiful settings and great facilities, you couldn't ask for more.
Beautiful campus in idealic location. Lost if facilities open to all students.
My course is in Steatham campus, which is amazing and beautiful. I have been witnessing it getting better and better from day to day. However, it could have been more complete if the internet in the forum could be improved. It was corrupted while I was listening to my recorded lecture sometimes - not sure if its because of the internet or any fault of Echo360. Furthermore, I think we should have more shops selling health food such as more choice in term of salad, smoothies, and low-in-calories snack and meal simply because many people are having healthier lives. Afterall, choosing UoE has been one of the best decisions of my life.
Amazing, Beautiful and supportive
Exeter is always welcoming, efficient student/staff liaison, the communication between departments and students for exams, results and module changes/problems is brilliant. The library is efficient and 'well-stocked', and the campus is all around beautiful. I feel like I'm in a bubble of paradise here.
Absolutely love it here! Such a great vibe and atmosphere on campus!
So much love, support and encouragement, plus a truly beautiful campus!
Absolutely love Exeter. Have had the most fantastic year, it feels like home and I would not want to be anywhere else!
Exeter is a great place to study, as well as a great place for socialising
Brilliant university. Home away from home.
Great university with great opportunities!
Exeter is a great uni! Everything you need is available and it's a great city.
Brilliant university; beautiful campus; active, happy and helpful students; great lecturers; considering there are three main clubs the night life isn't half bad
Sport membership is very expensive
It is great! But there should be a swimming pool in Streatham Campus
ITS AMAZING! I love my university and wouldn't ever go anywhere else.
