Excellence in teaching
At the University of Exeter we are committed to high quality teaching and student support, offering top quality learning resources and encouraging students to be part of our vibrant learning community. Our students are our partners in the learning process and our teaching style and ethos encourages class participation and active reflection by students. You should expect to be an active contributor in seminars, tutorials and virtual learning environments. In addition, you will be guided and supported by tutors to become increasingly independent in your learning.
Supporting and enhancing your studies
The University of Exeter offers excellent technology-enhanced learning opportunities via an interactive online learning environment which encourages blogging, online discussion forums and virtual field trips. All students have access to MyExeter – a student portal which is home to vital IT services including your email and calendar, documents saved to your own file space, online learning facilities and teaching timetables.
At Exeter we are also committed to a system of personal tutoring so that students receive the individual support and advice they need to succeed in their study here. All students have a personal tutor who is there to support you and help you deal with any problems or issues that arise.
Our Main Library is available to you to support your studies 24/7 throughout the academic year; we have the second largest number of e-journal downloads of any UK university; we have one of the highest UK academic library ratios of books to students with a stock in excess of 1.2 million; and we have one of Britain’s largest public collections of books, prints, artefacts and ephemera relating to the history and prehistory of cinema in the Bill Douglas Centre.

Whilst at University you’ll be encouraged to take part in a wide range of extra curricular activities which will enhance your skills and contribute to your opportunities after you graduate. We recognise this activity through the very popular Exeter Award Scheme. Details of this scheme can be found on the University website at http://www.exeter.ac.uk/exeteraward/
