International Summer School - why Exeter?

What is Exeter like?

Exeter is the regional capital of South-West England. It is a city steeped in history, with its famous cathedral dating back to Norman times and historic quay (above). There are lots of things to see and do – Exeter has a number of museums, theatres and galleries and a wide range of restaurants, pubs, bars, cafes and night clubs – all within walking distance of the main campus.

What is the University like?

Exeter’s Streatham Campus itself is recognised as one of the most beautiful in the UK. Based around a botanic garden, it has fantastic views to the surrounding countryside and is an ideal place for whiling away a few summer hours. It also has cafés, a bar and excellent sporting facilities. The surrounding countryside is easily accessible, with plenty to offer. The beaches of Exmouth are only 15 minutes away by train, the wild landscape of Dartmoor is less than an hour away, or for those looking for the big city atmosphere, Bristol is an hour's train journey. If you are an adventure sport enthusiast there is a wealth of options for you to try on your free days, whether this be mountain biking, kayaking or hiking. We are happy to provide you with the information you need to make the most of your time here.
