    The nightlife does not really compare to places like London. There's only one club but there is more of a pub culture here. We also have the Stannary (student union) which holds events. Have you visited the campus?

    No not yet I am not able to attend the open days so my only time visiting will be my interview. Is there a good social life within the university ?

    Hello Alex,

    I'm going to include a link to a website which publishes stories about students' personal experiences at their universities. You might find this story helpful: http://feel.news/university-of-exeter-student-story/

    Have a great day,

    I'd definitely try and visit to get a feel for the place as it's very different to your other two choices which our cities. There's lots of societies (the student union should help you with finding out more with this http://www.fxu.org.uk ) to get involved in which have their own socials etc. Have you applied yet or are you applying next year?
