University of Exeter
At the University of Exeter, we combine teaching excellence and high levels of student satisfaction with world-class research at our campuses in Exeter and Cornwall. We are a member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities. Our success is built on a strong partnership with our students and a clear concentrate on high performance.
About our strategies
Our purpose is to use the power of our education and research to create a sustainable, healthy, and socially just future. A number of strategies underpin and support Strategy 2030. These supporting strategies outline how we will build on our strong interdisciplinary culture to:
- Lead meaningful action against the climate emergency and ecological crisis.
- Make key breakthroughs to transform human health and wellbeing.
- Lead the progress towards creating a fair, socially just, and inclusive society.
The University has over 25,000 students from 130 countries and over 125,000 alumni in 183 countries providing our academic community of staff, students, and visiting researchers with a truly global experience and a diverse, inclusive environment. Our strategic partnerships across the world bring together leading academics and the resources of outstanding universities to deliver transformative impact in key global challenges such as global sustainability and wellbeing.
Our research is at the heart of what we do and is making a difference across the world. We unite expertise from across our academic disciplines, breaking down barriers to create innovative solutions to complex, global challenges. Recent breakthroughs to come out of the University of Exeter’s research include using drone surveys and computer modeling to plot extreme arctic erosion, improving diagnosis and treatment for cancer and diabetes (for which we were awarded a prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize), and developing a 7-point plan to battle the climate emergency via economic reform. Our scientists and clinicians are also part of a £20 million investment to battle the spread of coronavirus utilizing the University’s state-of-the-art equipment to sequence the virus from Devon patients to help combat the disease.
