    HI,

    I just wondered if anybody has been to the Penryn campus for Exeter. Does this hinder your creditability and job prospects? Is it isolated?

    If anyone has any info, it would be much appreciated.

    I don't go there currently but i'm considering it, and I know you graduate with a degree from the University of Exeter regardless of the campus, so employers etc don't need to know you've been there

    Yeah exactly my thoughts! Aslong as it just says degree from Exeter (which is obviously an amazing uni) then I don't really mind! Just worried about if it's isolated and night life and all that!

    I wasn't planning on it as its very far but I suppose I best do! Especially as it's different and not a big city and so I don't want to be somewhere for 3 years that I don't like!

    Hi,
    My daughter just finished studying geography at the Penryn Campus and loved it. She lived in Falmouth for the second two years and the buses are excellent and plentiful for going to and from uni, think its £1 a trip. Lived on campus the first year and you can walk into Penryn easily from there. Asda is walkable and I believe there is a bus too. Falmouth is a very vibrant studenty town, loads of cafes, restaurants, and some clubs. Beautiful area of the country. She found the campus great, library excellent and good place to study. Much smaller than a lot of universities but therefore friendly.The Stannary on campus holds lots of events, the societies are good, Geo soc, Enactus etc all good. She has been offered a masters at kings college, London so has not had any disadvantage from being at Penryn and has been involved in the main campus when working in Enactus.
