Student life

As an undergraduate Natural Sciences student at Exeter you will join an exciting, hands-on, multi-disciplinary subject. We pride ourselves on providing a challenging academic experience enhanced with state-of-the-art teaching facilities. 

Social facilities

All undergraduates have unlimited access to social and library areas on campus, as well as communal study areas within each academic building. In particular, natural sciences students will use the Physics, Harrison and Geoffrey Pope buildings, for meeting and working with fellow students.

Your voice as a student

Our academics and students develop strong working relationships over the course of a degree programme, a factor we feel is important to your success.

SLC: Student-Staff Liaison Committees

Student-Staff Liaison Committees (SSLCs) are student-run forums for suggestions and feedback to and from the College staff. SSLC's are fairly informal committees, chaired by one of the student representatives, which meets about once a term to discuss a wide range of issues and developments.

SSLCs include representatives from each year and each programme. Their job is to provide a point of contact for the students on their programmes.

Accelerate: Module and course evaluation

Feedback from students is requested for every module. Module leaders receive this feedback and are required to respond to the scores and comments received via the Annual Module Review process. The responses are subsequently shared with students.

University life and student support

The University provides many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of your studies. The Students’ Guild runs clubs and societies across a whole range of activities and interests and has one of the most advanced student media networks in the country. Our sports facilities are also amongst the best in the country. We aim to make sure our students leave us with memories of their time at university that they will treasure, and benefit from, for a long time after they graduate.
