The University of Exeter is a public research university located in South West England, United Kingdom.
The university was founded and received its Royal Charter in 1955, although its predecessor institutions, the Royal Albert Memorial College and the University College of the South West of England, were established in 1900 and 1922 respectively. In post-nominals, the University of Exeter is abbreviated as Exon. (from the Latin Exoniensis), and is the suffix given to honorary and academic degrees from the university.
The university has three campuses: Streatham; St Luke’s (both of which are in Exeter); and Tremough in Cornwall. The university is centred in the city of Exeter, Devon, where it is the principal higher education institution. Streatham is the largest campus containing many of the university’s administrative buildings, and is regarded as one of the most beautiful in the country. The Tremough campus is maintained in conjunction with Falmouth University under the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) initiative.
The University of Exeter has been named The Sunday Times University of the Year 2013 and was the Times Higher Education University of the Year 2007. Exeter has maintained a top ten position in the National Student Survey since the survey was launched in 2005. In 2011, it was regarded as one of the top 12 elite universities in the United Kingdom, and has been consistently ranked as one of the top 10 UK universities in recent years.
Exeter University is a member of the Russell Group of leading research-oriented UK universities. The university is also a member of Universities UK, the European University Association, and the Association of Commonwealth Universities and is an accredited institution of the Association of MBAs (AMBA).
