University of Exeter
The University of Exeter is a Top 10 university in the United Kingdom, ranked 7th in the Sunday Times University Guide 2013. Exeter offers a wide range of research-led academic programs across its campuses and is surrounded by some of the most beautiful countryside and coastline in the United Kingdom. Although there are 3 campuses, Coastal students are only allowed to study at the Streatham campus. The majority of students are based at Streatham campus, which is compact and convenient – the teaching buildings, libraries, student accommodation and the social buildings are all close together so it is easy to find your way around – and located only a 15-minute walk or five-minute bus ride from the city of Exeter.
Located about 2.5 hours away from London, Exeter has a population of around 118,000 and is consistently rated as one of the best places to live in the UK. It is a safe, student-friendly city with a vibrant and fun culture and relaxed atmosphere. Most new students find that Exeter is not a particularly expensive city to live in, and that you can enjoy a relatively high standard of living.
Coastal students can study abroad for a full year or a semester. All undergraduate level subjects, excluding medicine, are offered by the University of Exeter provided that academic criteria and prerequisites are met.
Important Note: Academic year students should apply early (at least 12-18 months prior to departure) as visa requirements are time-consuming to meet.
