Our students from the USA
There are currently around 200 US students studying full-time degrees and many others on Study Abroad programmes at the University of Exeter. Their programmes include:
LLB in Law
"I chose Exeter as I was excited about the Law program as that was my specific area of interest. I also chose it because of the beautiful campus and student town which is ideal for studying and safety. Everything is catered towards students, making campus life very easy; there are lots of student discounts and opportunities for work in town."
BA in Flexible Combined Honours in International Relations and Economics
"The main reason I chose Exeter was the structure of the degree - I have the opportunity to study two subjects that I am equally really interested in, and have the ability to get my degree in just three years. I also fell in love with the campus — you never see this much green in California! My career goal is to work for the UN, so being international is allowing me a view of a new culture, and I’m also in a better position to travel and explore all over Europe which is an opportunity I didn’t have as easily in California."
PhD in Islamic Archaeology of late Iron Age Northern Mozambique
"I came to the university from a professional background to study with one of world’s leading Islamic archaeologists and Africanists. I feel that my research so far has been an excellent application of my skill set. I look forward to expanding my professional network at conferences and abroad."
BSc in Biological Sciences
"I would definitely recommend Exeter to my friends because I love it so much. Within the 3 months that I have been living here, I already feel that I belong. Between the friendliness on campus and the tight-knit community in town, I love how welcoming this city has been to me. My course has been amazing so far, too. I have been able to go straight into what I want to study. Being in Devon is also a great bonus because you get the perks of being in an amazing area of the country"
BSc Business Economics
One of the main skills I’ve gained is learning to really prioritise the things that are meaningful to me. Before university, my parents would help me manage my time or would choose my priorities for me, but when I am here I have the freedom to choose. It’s definitely made me more disciplined.
MSc International Management
Upon arriving, I was thrilled to see the location of my new home in a lovely, quaint, safe, town. The university is beautiful, and I have felt a very warm welcome from all of the staff and students from day one.
Studying at Exeter gave me an expanded worldview. I'm based in Colorado in the United States and had only been out of the country a handful of times. While doing my PhD, not only did I have the opportunity to spend time in the UK, but when speaking at conferences, also explored Germany, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, N. Ireland and other countries. It was a very valuable time.
"The University of Exeter’s main campus is beautiful. There is a peaceful and welcoming vibe on campus, where students spread out outside in the gardens when the weather is nice. On weekdays, the campus is bustling with activity. Students are hard workers that value academics."
