Your voice as a student

We are committed to enabling all students to communicate their views and to receiving suggestions to influence changes to our policies and procedures. Taught postgraduate students of Sport and Health Sciences have a voice through the College of Life and Environmental Science postgraduate Student-Staff Liaison Committee (SSLC). This single SSLC, which exists for all disciplines in the Colleges, gives you the opportunity to voice your opinions about studying with us and to comment on a wide range of issues and possible developments.

The SSLC is presided over by Subject Chairs (a student elected by the Students’ Guild) and composed of elected student representatives from each year and programme and appropriate staff representatives. The Associate Dean (Education) and Assistant College Manager (Education) for the College of Life and Environmental Sciences meet with Subject Chairs on a regular basis, and Subject Chairs are represented on College’s Education Strategy Group.

Exeter is a city with an attractive mix of vibrant culture and a safe, student-friendly environment. With its excellent shopping, including the £235 million Princesshay development, and pubs, cafes, restaurants, theatres and cinemas there is plenty to do in the city, from the popular mainstream to the quirky and unusual.

Exeter is well placed for easy access to beautiful countryside and moorland, with Dartmoor and Exmoor on your doorstep – perfect for walkers and horse riders, plus the stunning coastline provides scope for surfing, swimming, kiteboarding, sailing, diving and almost any other watersport you can think of.

St Luke's Campus

Students have studied at St Luke’s for over 150 years and although much has changed over the years, the campus has retained a vibrant, collegiate atmosphere in which everyone soon gets to know each other. As you walk through the arches of the traditional North Cloisters you will see the lawns of the quadrangle surrounded by modern teaching buildings. The campus is a short work from the town centre and student halls are located on campus.
