At the University of Exeter we combine teaching excellence and high levels of student satisfaction with world class research at our campuses in Exeter and Cornwall. We are a member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities. Our success is built on a strong partnership with our students and a clear focus on high performance.


We offer first-class employability services, contributing to our outstanding graduate employment rate: 95.2% of our graduates are in work or further study six months after graduation. Exeter excels in both national and international league tables – 26 of the subjects we offer are in the UK top 10 (Complete University Guide 2019). The university is ranked in the top 150 universities worldwide according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

98 per cent of the University of Exeter’s research is of international quality (Research Excellence Framework 2014), and nine research areas at Exeter are in the top 10 nationally for world-leading or internationally excellent research with four in the top five: Theology (2nd), Area Studies, Archaeology (3rd), Politics (5th), Sociology, Education, Sport and Exercise Sciences, Public Health, Biological Sciences.

In a recent Student Crowd survey, Exeter was voted second in the top 20 best campus environments in the UK, and our students have the second highest levels of student satisfaction in the Russell Group (National Student Survey 2018).
