"Living in Exeter has been such an experience! — Intimidating at first, but one that I will remember for the rest of my life. Living with friends and meeting new people everywhere has been the highlight, and Exeter was the perfect place to explore the neighbouring areas such as Cornwall, Bristol, Oxford, and London. My favourite aspect would always be the strong sense of community."
BSc Business Economics
"What I enjoyed most about my degree programme was the exceptional flexibility it offered. Beyond studying Economics, I had the opportunity to explore various modules from other departments, such as Management, Finance, and Business Analytics. This wide range of choices allowed me to gain a comprehensive understanding of different facets within the business sectors and enriched my learning experience significantly."
BSc Conservation Biology and Ecology
"The field courses are definitely one of the best aspects of my department. I went to Scotland in my second year and it was fantastic. We managed to see plenty of wildlife as well as make many meaningful memories and friendships. I am very much looking forward to the 3rd year field course to Costa Rica next year."
BSc in Environmental Sciences
"I like the smaller cohorts at the Penryn Campus as there are more opportunities to interact with the lecturers. I am an active member of the Cheerleading Society and have been on three unforgettable field trips. My favourite part of the programme is going on field trips - we went to West Penwith in the first year, Isles of Scilly in second and California in the third year."
BSc in Economics and Finance
"University is the best time to find yourself as a person and discover what you like and enjoy the most. Keep an open mind about every experience and opportunity here as you never know what good may come out of it. Most importantly, have a balance and take time to forge memories of a lifetime with your friends, only then will Exeter be a place you can call home."
BSc Accounting and Business with Industrial Experience
"Staff support is one of the key driving factors that makes the Business School what it is today, with lecturers and seminar leads being so readily available and approachable, seeking help and getting support is accessible, as our tutors are here to help us succeed. The Business School has brilliant amenities, with tons of areas to either study silently or areas for group discussion, it really is a conducive area to work."
BSc Management and Marketing
"I think the University does a great job of providing resources to develop yourself holistically, there is a lot of career support available should you need assistance with that. I think the people at Exeter made all the difference for me, I am lucky to have met some of my best friends while here who have made the process of settling in to a new country so much easier. There is also a lot of support from the University to make international students feel more at home."

MSc Financial Economics
"The quantitative and technical elements of my degree improved transferrable skillsets and honed analytical ability. I also improved communication skills with the diverse student body."
BSc in Economics
"Reading Economics at Exeter has been an enriching experience; the curriculum combines theoretical and applied economics which is good for any aspiring economist. I also had the opportunity to delve into Leadership Studies, which has broadened my academic skillset. The flexibility to pick subjects within and beyond the Economics Department also provides the opportunity for me to broaden my knowledge."
BSc in Psychology
"I decided on Exeter as the University is part of the Russell Group and it is one of the best universities for my course. The modules are really interesting and engaging. The depth and breadth of the modules in Psychology allow me to have experiences in many different aspects of the field but also gives me the freedom to choose things I'm interested in. I enjoy the pace of life at Exeter. It gives me a nice balance between studying and socialising."
BSc in Accounting and Finance
"The environment here is peaceful which makes it conducive to study. Travelling around Exeter is also convenient as everywhere I go is of walking distance. The University was very welcoming and positive, with a very vibrant environment. I got to meet people from all walks of life."
MSc Sports and Health Science
"The St Luke’s campus exudes a note of antiquity from the outside, yet has state-of-the-art research facilities on the inside. The laboratories are bright, clean, well-equipped and great to work in. It’s a nice and quiet place that allows you to concentrate, with the presence of night life if you fancy. If there is a course here that suits your interests and career aspirations, this is an excellent place to study at."
MSc in Conservation Biodiversity
"I chose Exeter as I was really interested in the course and the modules seemed really fascinating (especially the Kenya field course!). This and the fact that Exeter is one of the best universities for ecology made the choice so much easier."
