English language requirements


Direct entry

If you have already completed your A levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma, you will be eligible for direct entry if you meet your chosen programme’s entry requirements. These are shown on the course pages of the University’s website and in the undergraduate prospectus. You can apply through UCAS.

We also accept the following Indian qualifications:

  • ICSE/CBSE Board Standard XII;
  • West Bengal Board Standard XII; and
  • Maharashtra (e.g. Mumbai or Pune) Junior Year.

For these we require minimum aggregate scores of 80%, or 70% for the West Bengal Board Standard XII. Other regional board standard XII exams can be considered on an individual basis, but we usually require an aggregate score of at least 85%.

Foundation Year entry

If you don’t quite meet any of the above requirements, you will need to take a recognised Foundation Year programme, such as INTO’s International Foundation Year, available on the Exeter campus.


For direct entry onto our Masters programmes you will be required to hold a relevant Bachelors degree with a grade equivalent to a UK Upper Second-class honours (2:1).

If you are interested in our Finance or Management Masters programmes but do not quite meet our entry requirements, you may be able to gain entry by first attaining a Graduate Diploma through INTO, which you can read more about here.

For entry onto postgraduate research programmes, you will need to hold a relevant Masters degree, supported by a strong research proposal.

For more information, please visit our postgraduate applications page.

Fee status

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.

Tuition fees

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 student finance webpage.

Living costs

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 pages. 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. Details are on our immigration advice webpage.


International students can apply for several of the University of Exeter's scholarships and bursaries. For further information please visit our scholarship search engine. 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.

Immigration advice

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 accommodation pages.

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.
