Hi, I applied to Exeter, Southampton, Birmingham, Sussex and Swansea back in November for Bsc Geography. I've had offers back from all but Exeter, and was wondering if anyone else is still waiting for theirs? I wouldn't be too fussed but Exeter is my top choice so now I'm starting to worry!

It took me a couple of weeks to get my offer (not for geography), but I applied in October (when there would be lots less applicants to process through)

I have had an offer from Exeter for BSc Geography (with a placement year) after a couple weeks I think when I applied in December but I shouldn't worry too much about not hearing back! It doesn't mean you are rejected, they technically still have plenty of time before they have to reply. Best of luck though, hope you get an offer soon

Hi Amy
What course are you doing? I can give you a further insight as to whether you will get an offer or not.

Also, what are your grades?

Either way, statistically speaking, you are very very likely to get an offer from Exeter. Just look at their offer rate, I believe it is a whopping ~88.7%.

Of course, this is just generally speaking, but depending on your course, odds are, you’ll get an offer if you actually meet the entry requirements.

I was a student at Exeter previously, left a few months after.

Sure I’ll provide a link. Though, again, I have to mention, this is just generally speaking, it’s not a statistic that applies to one particular course.

You have to scroll a little bit to find Exeter.

Hi HakimI just wondered, what were you studying at Exeter and what made you leave? Was it something to do with the uni (teaching standards/lack of interesting modules/student life/etc)?I have a confirmed offer for BA geography at Exeter (deferred from last year) but I'm nervous if I've made the right decision. I'd love to know what you made of it.Thanks!

I left Exeter three months after being in. Never did any exam or anything of that nature before leaving. I was studying Law, and just decided that the subject wasn’t for me.

However, I will say that the teaching I received as well as the support provided both academically and emotionally was world class. Like honestly, world class. Everything was right about Exeter apart from my actual interest in the subject area.

I’ve now taken some time off (~1 year) and decided, after some long thought and personal experience, to pursue construction engineering management (I know...really different right). Got a confirmed place at Loughborough University after a few interviews.

Based off of my experience at Exeter as well as my friends, some of whom were studying subjects in the humanities department, the teaching facilities and quality is all around excellent. I really haven’t heard anything negative from anyone I know personally who’s studied at Exeter during my time there.

I would advocate the decision you’ve made. Exeter is a brilliant choice. Assuming you actually have an interest in the subject your studying and thought long and hard about whether you actually want to pursue knowledge and a degree within this subject area, you won’t regret the choice of picking Exeter. You will receive a solid solid quality education and will go through one hell of an experience (their nightlife is great and the people there are interesting, wild and a few are mad. But there are many level headed people). I really liked the open mindedness of everyone there. Being from a black background, I was a little hesitant at first when going there, but I experienced no discrimination of any kind. Everyone, including the staff, treated me very well.

A potential disadvantage I’d say for some people is it’s a little expensive. (Accommodation and leisure wise)

Anyway, if you have more questions, please shoot me a response and il reply to the best of my ability.

Hakim
