Opportunities on our Cornwall Campuses

The University of Exeter has two Campuses in Cornwall, Penryn and Truro.

Our Penryn Campus combines Russell Group prestige and quality, small-campus intimacy and an environment unrivalled in the UK. Students tell us they enjoy the easy access to world-class academics, the friendly atmosphere and the benefits of recent, large-scale investments. The Penryn Campus is also shared with Falmouth University. This creates a vibrant, creative mix of students with science, engineering, humanities and arts backgrounds.

Our Truro Campus is the base for the University of Exeter Medical School in Cornwall and home to the European Centre for Environment & Human Health (ECEHH).

We produce graduates from a wide range of disciplines within the four main colleges:

  • College of Life and Environmental Sciences: Physical and Human Geography, Environmental Science, Human Sciences, Evolutionary Biology, Conservation and Ecology, Animal Behaviour, Zoology, Conservation Science and Policy, and Sustainable Development (with Climate Change and Risk Management).
  • College of Engineering, Maths and Physical Sciences: Renewable Energy, Maths and the Environment; and the Camborne School of Mines specialising in Mining, Geology and Surveying.
  • College of Humanities: English and History
  • Business School
  • College of Social Sciences and International Studies: Politics and International Relations and Flexible Combined Honours.
  • European Centre for Environment and Human Health: Postgraduate taught and research students

We are always happy to hear from organisations who are interested in engaging with our students and you can be sure of a friendly, helpful and efficient service. There are many ways in which you can get involved which are outlined in the enclosed brochure sheets and we are always open to innovative suggestions.
