Useful Information 

Local Overview
Exeter really blends the classic and modern. It’s a historic and cultural place with wonderful Gothic architecture, but it’s also contemporary and vibrant thanks to a large student population. You’ll love the traditional English appeal of landmarks and cobbled streets but will also find it easy to meet new people here.

It is situated on the River Exe in the county of Devonshire and is the capital city of Devon. The surrounding area of Devon with its sweeping countryside, its narrow hedged roads and lavished green fields are only a few miles from the centre. And with its pivotal position within the county, Exeter is also ideally placed to base a trip to branch out visiting places such as the famous Dartmoor National Park and the unspoilt beaches of the North and South Devon coastlines.
Host institution
The University of Exeter (UE) combines world class research with excellent student satisfaction at its campuses in Exeter and Cornwall. The University traces its origins to schools and colleges established in the nineteenth century as a result of the energies and visions of individual educational reformers and philanthropists. This innovative and pioneering attitude has carried through as UE is recognised as one of the fastest-rising, fastest-growing universities in the UK. It was voted Sunday Times University of the Year in 2013.

On-campus accommodation is provided as part of the program fee. Students live in dormitory flats with private bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms, and shared kitchens and communal areas.
