Location & Facilities
Exeter is located in the South-West of England, two and a half hours by train from London. The South West peninsula is the warmest part of the UK, and Exeter is its regional capital.
Exeter's main Streatham campus is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the UK. It is also very well located, providing a campus environment within the city's boundary - only a 5 min bus ride from the commercial centre. The St Lukes campus is similarly central.
The student Guild (student union) is particularly active with over 130 student societies (interest clubs) and sports clubs, and boasts a fantastic social and entertainment programme. There are cafes, restaurants, bars and other shops on campus.
