The University remains committed to ensuring the safety of those participating in our employability events and continue to monitor the situation surrounding COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Our services and events have been adapted so that they can be offered either online or in-person on campus. Please click on the individual sections for more information.

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 is home to the European Centre for Environment & Human Health (ECEHH).

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

  • 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.
