What our students say about Exeter


‘The Streatham campus is really beautiful and the city is small enough to get around on foot or by bike. You get to enjoy a city experience but with incredible coast and countryside nearby.’ Aleeha from Pakistan studying MA by Research in Anthropology


‘The combination of the beautiful campus, a really good department and Exeter as a city made doing my Masters here an easy decision to make. Exeter ticks all the boxes – it’s such a nice place to study and live.’ Anna from the UK studying Theology and Religion MA
