Exeter seems a nice town- it's less than an hour from the coast and has quite good shops- lots of chain-store type shops- woolworths, WHSmith, Waterstones (for all for study-book needs ) etc etc etc along with clothes and bits and bobs etc...don't know if there's a seperate sort of bit with pubs and clubs etc?
Last time we went we had a quick look at the uni because my sister was considering it- some of it was nice-looking and some of it was not so nice looking but I didn't go inside anywhere...

Erm...yeah well you'll prob want to check out their site and look at a prospectus or something

Someone here'll probably have some more informatic details

Good luck with everything...

I went to the uni on an open day, v nice. Not many parking spaces if u wanna take ur car, the science blocks aren't very up to date, reminded me of my old school where the labs hadn't been updated since the 70's... Some nice equipment though. Also stayed in the uni accomodation during easter holidays with my brass band, very nice. i had an en-suite room with a double bed, kitchen shared between 6 which was huge, then a lounge which was also huge with a tv and video player. That was in Rowe house, near cornwall house on the east side of the campus as u look at the map. Ummm, not a lot else to say, lots of hills, the sports centre is on top of a hill. To make u warm up presumably! Anyway I'm sure u'll enjoy it there, one of my mates is goign to do psychology there.

I was at Uni of Plymouth, Exmouth campus and loved the whole area. Exeter is great. Not expensive and very friendly people. Lots of military men if you're into that kind of thing (it's how I met my boyfriend!). My brother has been accepted into Exeter so he's well chuffed.

If you're going there you will have a lovely time. Make sure you pop into the Warehouse and Timepiece clubs, and go to Samantha's in Exmouth for a good laugh and to pull some marines! ;-)

Wow! But I doubt that the majority of campus accomodation would be like that!?!

Warehouse is great! Cheesy 70s, as well as modern stuff in the other half!

I live in Exeter - have done for 10 years.
It's a great city!Lots to do - cinema, pubs, clubs, good selection of shops and friendly people.
The University is well placed near a favourite pub with students - The Imperial.
Also quite close to the sea and Dartmoor is beautiful if you are an outdoor person.
Exeter Uni is also well respected and the courses are meant to be good.
Hope you find it good if you come here.
