The International Summer School is based on two different University of Exeter campuses, with different courses offered from each.


The majority of the International Summer School courses are based at the Streatham Campus in Exeter, which is widely acknowledged to be one of the most beautiful in the UK.

The campus has excellent facilities to support your studies and time in Exeter which include:

  • The Forum was opened by the Queen in 2012 and is at the heart of the Streatham Campus. It houses the library, shops, cafes and learning spaces equipped with the very latest innovative technology
  • The Northcott Theatre
  • Banks and cashpoints (ATMs)
  • The Sports Park including running trails and an outdoor swimming pool
  • Student Health Centre
  • Christian and Muslim prayer rooms (please see the Chaplaincy site for more information)

Some of our Streatham based courses also offer the opportunity to visit another of our Exeter campuses, St Lukes, as some academic sessions take place in our Medical School and Medical Sciences buildings.


Some of our courses specialising in the environment or literature take place at one of our Cornwall campuses; Penryn. The campus is set in the countryside, close to the seaside town of Falmouth, in a region of the South West renowned for its natural beauty and resources.

We offer some of our courses on this campus as they link directly to the natural setting or resources of Cornwall, which allows the course to integrate with its surroundings.

Like our Streatham campus, Penryn has excellent facilities for you to enjoy during your study time in Cornwall. These include:

  • The Exchange building, which houses lecture theatres, study space and the library
  • The Science and Engineering Research Support Facility, a £5.5 million development putting the university at the forefront of research in to solutions of the problem of environmental change
  • A recently developed Sports Centre including gym facilities.
  • The Heart building, with bars, shops and cafes.

"I absolutely loved it! The campus is gorgeous, the trips were amazing and the city centre was great" - Rebekah Wade, University of South Florida, USA
