Undergraduate Study

Campus tours

If you are unable to attend one of our Open Days, a Campus tour will give you an introduction to the University and our campuses and show you the main buildings. We offer both guided tours (usually conducted by current students) and self-guided walking tour leaflets that allow you to tour the campus independently.

Tours take place weekly and give you the opportunity to see facilities, discover support services, talk to current students and meet lecturers (Penryn Campus only - subject to availability).

Which campus should I visit?

Your choice of academic programme will determine which of our campuses you should visit. In some cases we offer the same discipline on more than one campus, however the programme content and modules offered are different reflecting the expertise and specialisms of academic staff and facilities available at each campus.

Important: If your subject of interest is taught at more than one of our campuses we strongly recommend that, before booking a Campus Tour, you visit our subject and programme pages to see the latest information about our programmes.

Self-guided tours of the University of Exeter's campuses

If you would like to visit the Penryn, Streatham or St Luke’s campuses independently, you may like to use our self-guided walking tours leaflets. They can also be used as a supplement to a guided campus tour. 

Audio tours

Our downloadable audio tours are currently unavailable as we update them to take into account the new developments on our campuses, such as Living Systems at Streatham, South Cloisters at St Luke's, and the Science and Engineering Research Support facility at Penryn.

Streatham and St Luke’s campuses in Devon

The International Student Recruitment team organises around 300 campus visits each year for international students who are resident outside the UK.

If you are an International student, resident outside the UK, we can arrange campus visits on the following days and times:

Tuesdays at 10:00
Wednesdays at 13:15
Thursdays at 10:00 and 13:15

(we will try to accommodate alternative weekday requests where possible)

We can arrange for international visitors to have a Question and Answer session with one of our International Officers. This is an ideal opportunity to ask any questions students may have regarding the application and confirmation process, programme structures, accommodation, University facilities or UK student life

Campus tours take place at both the Streatham and St Luke’s campuses and can be booked online (see top of page).

However, if a Streatham campus tour is not available on the date you would like to visit then we can usually arrange for one of our International Recruitment Coordinators to take you on a shorter tour.

We can also sometimes arrange for you to meet with a College administrator or academic after your campus tour, subject to their availability.

To book an international campus visit please select ‘Events and Visits’ and ‘Campus tours’ on the enquiry form and inform us of the date and time of your visit as well as your Country of Domicile.

We look forward to welcoming you to the University of Exeter
