Student life

The University's three campuses offer a safe and welcoming environment.  In Exeter student activities are co-ordinated by the Students' Guild, in Cornwall by FXU, for further information please see our Students' Guild/FXU webpage.

Socially, the Guild/FXU co-ordinates over 180 societies and sports clubs.  From Archaeology to Skiing, from Chocolate to Badminton, there is a club or society for everyone.  There are also a number of country based societies and an International Society with branches in both Exeter and Cornwall.  They are a great way to meet new friends and enrich your experience at Exeter.

The South West of England is a top holiday destination thanks to its mild climate and beautiful surroundings.  Transport links to London and the rest of the UK and Europe are excellent.  Exeter is a historic, safe, student-friendly city with a population of around 120,000 and a thriving arts scene.  As the regional capital, students have access to a great range of shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.  For a virtual tour of the city click here.  Our Cornwall Campus is just a short distance from the lively, waterfront town of Falmouth.  With its seven beaches, beautiful rivers and the world-famous marina, it's a haven for those who love sand, sea and surf.  You can find out much more about life in Cornwall in our 24 Ours guide.
