Living expenses vary depending on lifestyle choices.  As a guide, students should budget for a minimum of £1023 a month to cover basic expenses such as food. accommodation, books etc.

Students entering the UK as a Visitor (single semester students only), must submit an Exeter English Language Proficiency Form as part of their application. This must be signed by their home university to confirm that they have the required level of English. 

If a student is applying for the Student Visa (full year or single semester) we cannot accept the English language proficiency form as evidence. The Student visa application requires students to provide official English language qualifications as listed here when applying to Exeter.
