BSc Exercise and Sport Sciences with Study Abroad

“I selected Exeter as my top choice after attending an Offer-Holder Visit Day. It’s hard to articulate why, but I just remember walking around St Luke’s and just knowing it was the place I wanted to study, even in the awful February cold and rain! I just got this feeling. Maybe some of you reading this will know what I mean!

One of the main reasons I chose Exeter was the city itself. It’s such a great place to be a student, everything you need is within walking distance from both campuses and the city offers a diverse range of experiences, from historical buildings to restaurants and bars. The city centre and cathedral area are well-maintained and beautiful in all weathers. There are also some great places to visit further away down by the Quay or along the river offering nice restaurants and leisure activities. There’s also the Exmouth-Paignton train line which runs through Exeter and means you can escape to the seaside when the weather is nice at very little cost, which as a student is always good!

What I love most about being a student at the University of Exeter, specifically at St Luke’s, is the fact that the campus really feels like it’s yours. Everyone on this campus is proud to study here and we really get the best deal; a small and friendly campus dedicated to just a few subjects that aren’t oversubscribed in terms of student population, as well as being able to walk to the Streatham Campus if we want to use the facilities there too.

The sport and health sciences department is great. The lecturers are welcoming and always want to talk to you and get to know you better. The facilities are top-class and the university really cares about our opinions. You can really throw yourself into university life here as you make some amazing friends on the course.

During my time in Exeter, I was also lucky enough to have the chance to study abroad in Colorado, USA*. This was genuinely the best decision of my life. If you get the opportunity to spend part of your degree abroad, be brave and seize it! You will be so glad you did.”
