Research at the
University of Exeter
There are more than 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans. An estimated 10 per cent of the plastics we produce end up in the sea. Researchers from the University of Exeter are leading the way in investigating the effect this has on the health of humans and wildlife.

Not only is Exeter a beautiful place to live, but it's also such a great learning environment. I find it really easy to talk to my lecturers about the course content or even just things that interest me and the University is constantly improving facilities to supplement our learning. There is so much support available to aid your studies and future career as well as your general wellbeing. I feel like, when I leave, I will be well-rounded and ready for what the world has to throw at me.
Studying Materials Engineering
My decision to study on Penryn Campus and adjust to life in Cornwall was a huge leap of faith. A year down the line and many smiles and laughs later, I couldn't be happier with my choice. At Penryn Campus, you don't make friends, you make family. My favourite aspect about studying here has to be the people. The size of Penryn Campus means that you belong to a closely-knit community. You get to benefit from the extremely high quality of education the University of Exeter has to offer whilst forming long-term friendships along the way.

Studying Mining Engineering
Exeter is a vibrant, regional University. Its global outlook and diversity fosters a culture of open-ness, innovation and collaboration with researchers from all backgrounds; in industry, in non-Government organisations and at other universities. Exeter's entrepreneurial research culture enables me to explore new horizons, establish enduring research partnerships and exploit the latest research technologies. Working in this way I have been able to build a multinational team focused on solving long-term problems in sustainable energy, pollution and health.
