International partnerships

Through our research and student and staff exchanges, Exeter is at the forefront of global collaboration. We engage with partners overseas on issues of global importance.

Exeter faculty have links with hundreds of universities around the world, which we support through funding from Colleges and the International Office.  In addition, our Internationalisation Strategy aims to develop parallel partnerships, underpinned by multiple 'bottom up' links, with a limited number of leading universities around the world.  We believe that by actively encouraging our students and staff to develop meaningful engagement with their overseas counterparts, we can have a worldwide impact.  This global reach gives our students and academics wide-ranging opportunities to develop their academic talents and enhances our research portfolio.

Student exchanges are a major component of our international partnership work.  We are committed to offering as many Exeter students as possible the opportunity to spend part of their degree programme abroad and offer access to a variety of opportunities including Erasmus (Opportunities Abroad).  We also welcome many international students to Exeter either for a semester, a year or longer.  They benefit not only from our academic strength and fantastic campus facilities but are also given the opportunity to develop new skills and enhance their employability.
