Masters study opportunities at University of Exeter

Masters and Taught Courses in South West England

Exeter University

The University of Exeter combines world-class research with excellent student satisfaction, from our campuses in the South West of England, in Exeter and Cornwall. We are one of the very few universities to be both a member of the Russell Group and have a Gold award from the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), evidence of our established international reputation for excellence in both teaching and research. Our success is built on a strong partnership with our students and a clear focus on high performance.

World-leading research

  • 98 per cent of our research is of international quality and we have world-leading research and impact in all subjects (REF 2014)
  • 9th in Europe for scientific performance by CWTS Leiden[1]
  • At the forefront of global collaboration, actively supporting our staff and students to build working relationships with counterparts overseas

Our research is incredibly diverse, but we have particular expertise in:

  • The climate emergency and sustainability
  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Identities and beliefs
  • The future of work

Scholarships available

The University of Exeter is offering scholarships to the value of over £4 million for students starting with us in September 2021. Details of scholarships, including our Global Excellence scholarships for international fee-paying students, can be found on our dedicated funding page.

A Masters degree from a top university

Our research is at the heart of what we do – it creates the textbooks you study and the lectures you attend, so you’re always engaging with the latest thinking and discoveries. You will also benefit from our excellent facilities and laboratories for science technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine as well as humanities and social sciences across all of our campuses.

Putting Masters degrees in reach of many 

The academic entry requirements for Masters degrees are often a 2:1 Honours (or equivalent) from any recognised institution. This – combined with scholarships and the Government’s Postgraduate Loan Scheme – opens up the opportunity for a University of Exeter Masters degree to many graduates.
