Good apart from failing to give me reasonable adjustments in my classes and telling me I’d failed and then telling that was a mistake and I’d passed. And then reading out the wrong degree at graduation and printing the wrong degree in the book.
Variety of tutors
Ok - but difficult to get hold of at busy times
I drove 2 hours each way for lectures. And then had to also find parking as none on campus
Didn’t do any
Exeter is perfect for someone who likes trying out new things- it’s full of culture and events and activities, but still feels like a community on campus! Like the marketing says, it’s “Probably the best university in the world!”
Career zone is super useful for searching for vacancies, the best ones are the Student Campus Partnerships offered by the uni and since they’re all for students, it’s student hour friendly and on campus!
Academics are always willing to do that little extra? Think something’s a silly question? No problem, drop them an email, everyone is super informal since you’re treated like an adult at this stage
The Guild is home to the best societies- there’s over 250 to choose from, but if you fancy something different, just start your own society!
10/10- can’t think of a single thing it’s missing?
Town’s only a 10/15 minute walk from campus, but if you need a bite to eat on the way to lectures or grab something last minute like some alcohol, there’s no need to leave campus- everything’s there!
There’s not a single sport you can’t do- from pole fitness to rugby, even if you don’t consider yourself sporty, there’s always something like intermural hockey, netball, football etc to get involved in!
Wellbeing is the best thing offered by Exeter
Overall, my university experience has been particularly enjoyable, allowing me to get to know my peers and academics. On the other hand, when I have tried to access counselling and other mental health services through the uni this has not been dealt with as well as I had perhaps expected.
The university makes great effort to promote employability opportunities, providing weekly newsletters describing any openings and career enhancing workshops.
I like the variety of lecturers that I have been able to encounter on my course, allowing me to gain expertise from many academics from different disciplines. I dislike the time it has taken for some of my feedback to be released.
The value of the Students' Union has improved over my time at the university, providing more outlets and opportunities to give feedback.
The university's facilities are very good, with many catering services.
The university is in a good location to some limited local amenities, being 15-20 minute walk away from a high street. However, the larger town in Falmouth is a bit more of a journey away, requiring public transportation.
There is a very large variety of societies and sports, covering all range of activities and for all abilities.
The support offered by my university could be in need of some improvement. The access to tutors is excellent, with them being easily accessible by email or office hours. However, access offered to counselling could be more improved, and this should be considered in relation to mitigation forms for example.
Fantastic. The best University I have studied at so far and I have studied at six. I absolutely recommend the University of Exeter to anyone considering studying there. The facillities are superb and the staff friendly and approachable. The fellow students are interesting people also.
I took part in the Careers Scene program, where the university give me an industry mentor. I had an excellent time taking part and my mentor was amazing and I got so much out of the program.
The course involved a range of activities to ensure that learning was retained and information was available at the appropriate time. The worst bit was the school placement. Due to circumstances beyond the school's control, I had two different Principal subject tutors and two mentors, which disrupted my learning. This was outside the remit of the university.
Excellent. Great shop with friendly staff. I have used the Student's Union for advice and they were helpful with my problem
The library is easy to access and I did so on line and in person at the St Luke's Campus. There are computer and printing facilities when you need them. The course was managed online, with everything I needed at the touch of a button. The faculty were very knowledgable and I felt that they thought my opinion was important. They were very supportive and gave me advice when I asked.
Lots of opportunities to participate. Exeter is known for it's sporting success
Superb. They did as much as possible to help, I felt valued.
Easy to make friends and socialistic. great atmosphere and sense of well-being. can feel like a bubble at times. which can be good and bad at times. nice work life balance.
Careers zone and fairs. very helpful. Already placed for an internship
Regular weekly feedback on formative work. and great feedback on summative too
+ Good staff & lecturers - Could use more grounding in real-world context / work
Not too bad, could be better
I'd say so
Pretty good. Have utilised student support before to good effect, and received considerable support from lecturers and personal tutor.
Brilliant experience so far. Really enjoyed the personal attention, and friendly, informal and intimate setting. Supports high level academia but with a relaxed and well balanced work-social lifestyle. Great external and international opportunities for travel via study abroad, field trips and as part of wider research community.
Great Careers Zone department integrated into modules and very accessible and friendly for walk-ins and appointments to give advice when needed.
Most like the variety of different modules that we can learn about and the field courses available. Least like the lack of structure to the course.
Student's Union does a great job of representation and always listens to and supports student's perspectives and problems.
Great facilities. Very modern, accessible and top of the range.
Great location in Penryn and close to Falmouth for nightlife and beaches and then Truro isn't too far for high street shopping and mainline train connections
Great variety of sports clubs and societies both academic and not. Lots of support to establish new societies and very welcoming and friendly to encourage student participation.
Excellent tutor system for academic issues supported by general pastoral care offered university wide.
Enjoyable experience Good location Very friendly staff Community feel Lifelong friends Good employment training Good extracurricular opportunities Overall an enjoyable and memorable tiem
Very focussed and successful
Placement based with teaching based around the placements PBL and anatomy teaching need significant improvement
Poor representation for medical students but good otherwise
Limited from St Lukes and in Cornwall
I've loved every second of it, so much so that I returned to Exeter to do my MA and may well return for a PhD. After struggling with study skills in first year, with the help of tutors I now am able to work at a very high level and am extremely pleased with my academic achievements.
The careerzone offers excellent help with CVs, interview preparation, cover letter writing, finding schemes and jobs to apply for, advice for industry to go into, tailored advice for your industry, and employability workshops which teach you how to e.g. create and optimise your linkedin profile
Seminars are discussion based and centred around the philosophy of research led teaching, and student led research.
Our student guild does a good job at representing us (even us postgraduate students!) But the university itself doesn't always listen, which is a shame
Very good, although they could stand to make it easier for disabled students to navigate around (especially to avoid forum hill, which is very steep. All current alternatives have stairs, inappropriate for someone in a wheelchair who can't push themselves up the steep hill)
It can feel like a bit of a trek if you're not used to the hills but it isn't a very big city, so you can easily get from one side to the other! Exeter also has a fantastic cycle network and electric bicycles which can be hired, including from right outside the university.
An excellent range for societies and sports, truly something for everyone. I have been part of the literature society, Pokémon society, friends of Israel society, climbing club, and the LGBT society.
I haven't accessed the wellbeing services but the support provided by academic and personal tutors has always been very sensitive and personable
My Experience has been very good so far. It is a good platform for getting a job in the future. Living there is good. Good connections with London and Bristol.
