Hi everyone
I'm planning on applying to Exeter this year for politics. I'm really not a sporty person but I've heard that Exeter is a really sporty uni... Is this true? Is it imperative to be a part of sport to make friends? Is it true that the vast majority of students are heavily involved in sport, i.e is there an overwhelming 'jock' culture? Any answers would be appreciated, I'm more into the arts/ music scene, does this exist here??

Plenty of sporty people around, but I did just fine in a flat with no sporty people. Theres a smaller arts/music scene but the societies are there for it, and a range of non-sporting societies.

So you'd say it's easy to make friends without being a part of sports?

Yeah. Just make sure you check out some societies during freshers week, for me i'd say its the best way to meet a lot of new people and discover something new.

Hi,I've just finished my first year at Exeter and neither me nor the vast majority of my friends are involved in any of the sports societies! There is a huge range of sports available with good facilities, however if you're not interested there are so many other ways to make friends. I'd definitely recommend joining other societies though - I do a lot of music and have made some amazing friends through the music societies. Let me know if you have any questions!
