English language requirements
The University accepts a wide range of international qualifications. As competition for places is strong, good grades are always required, and an early application is recommended.
Undergraduate programmes 2017-18
The University of Exeter's typical offer in terms of GCE A-levels is A*AA-ABB, excluding General Studies, or 38-32 points in the International Baccalaureate Diploma (including bonus points). Each programme has slightly different requirements, both in terms of overall points and required subjects, so please check the relevant subject in the Undergraduate prospectus.
We accept the following qualifications from Mauritius for direct entry on to undergraduate courses at the University of Exeter:
- GCE A-Levels (in the range A*AA to ABB, depending on the course)
- International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma (in the range 38 to 32, depending on the course)
Students who do not quite meet these entry requirements can take a Foundation Year such as those offered by INTO Exeter (details here).
For students graduating from a university in Mauritius, the standard requirement for direct entry on to a Masters programme at Exeter is an Upper Second (2i /60% or higher) from a recognised university.
Applicants for postgraduate research programmes (MPhil, PhD, EdD) will need to demonstrate experience of research methodologies. For this reason, often, successful research applicants will have completed a Masters degree with a thesis or dissertation component.
All applications for postgraduate degrees should be made via the "Apply on-line" button on the webpage for each course. Applications can be made up to 12 months before the start date.
Taught Masters programmes have a single intake in September each year. Research students may be able to start at other times, with their supervisor's agreement.
English language requirement
All students, undergraduate or postgraduate, must also meet our English language requirements before they can receive an unconditional offer.
Your fee status will depend on where you are from. When students apply, they are classified as "Home/EU" if they are from the UK or from the European Union, and "International" if they are from elsewhere. If you are not sure whether your fee status is "Home/EU" or "International", read this advice from The Complete University Guide.
Fees vary by programme and will be detailed in the offer letter you will receive after you have applied. Fees are not fixed at the point of entry for all years of study: there may be a small increase year-on-year for courses which are over one year in duration. For more information, please see our .
The University recommends that single students allow at least £1,015 per month for living costs, which includes accommodation, food and books, but not travel to/from the UK. Students with families (a spouse and children) should allow additional resources for each dependant. You can find more details about living costs on our International Student Support webpages. If you need a visa to study in the UK, for yourself and/or your dependants, you should familiarise yourself with UK Visas and Immigration's (UKVI's) financial requirements.
There are many funding and scholarship opportunities available to international students - find out more about these on our searchable funding database. The British Council can also provide more information about funding schemes.
The International Student Support Office is here to help you with your immigration enquiries for the UK - from your initial application for a Tier 4 (General) Student visa to study your first course at Exeter, to visas for working after your studies.
Immigration is changing all the time, it is therefore extremely important that students keep up-to-date with the newest regulations when applying for their visas and access the free specialist immigration advice that we offer. See our Applying for a Visa pages for more information.
The University of Exeter offers a wide selection of university accommodation, on and off campus, to suit all tastes and budgets.
Accommodation is guaranteed for:
- new, unaccompanied first year undergraduates
- international fee-paying unaccompanied first year postgraduates
- full year Erasmus/Study Abroad students
as long as applications are received by the deadline of 31st July.
When you apply for accommodation, please note, you do NOT have to hold an Unconditional offer to submit your application: as long as your response is Firm, you will still be able to apply, even if your offer from the University of Exeter is Conditional. However, a room will not be allocated to you until all the conditions of your offer have been met.
Undergraduate students have a choice of catered or self-catered accommodation. There is a broad range of options: twin rooms, single studio bedrooms with bathroom and kitchen attached, and more. Postgraduate, Study Abroad and Erasmus students can only apply for self-catered accommodation.
For full details of the options available, as well as prices, facilities and 360-degree virtual tours of some of the rooms, visit our .
Students who would like to rent private, rather than University-run, accommodation can use the Accommodation Office's online database of privately rented accommodation. Visit the "Private Housing" section of the accommodation pages for details.
Our local representatives
The University of Exeter has agreements with the following independent representatives in your country, who would be pleased to tell you more about the University's facilities and programmes. They can also assist you in making an application. Most of our representatives offer their services to applicants for free. Those that do charge a fee must make this clear from the outset of their consultation with students and issue appropriate receipts. If you have any concerns about whether an agent is an authorised representative of the University of Exeter, please contact us. We also welcome feedback on the services offered by our local representatives.
