The University, City and Region

The University

The roots of the University can be traced back to the School of Art, which was founded in 1855. The University as we now know it was bestowed the Royal Charter by Queen Elizabeth II in 1955.

The university was named the Sunday Times University of the Year in 2013 and was the Times Higher Education University of the Year in 2007. Exeter has maintained a top ten position in the National Student Survey since the survey was launched in 2005. In 2011, it was considered as being one of the top 10 elite universities in England and the university is one of only eight universities to be ranked within the top 10 of all three major national league tables for 2016. Exeter is a member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive UK universities.

The Streatham Campus is considered to be one of the most beautiful in England with student housing and teaching buildings grouped closely together.
