We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
OUR COLLEGE Ranked 65th in the Times Higher World Subject Rankings, the College of Humanities carries out excellent research and teaching across a number of related disciplines. Our areas of expertise include Archaeology, Classics and Ancient History, Drama, English Studies, Film Studies, History, Modern Languages, Translation, and Theology and Religion. With around 370 staff, 3300 undergraduate students and 500 postgraduate students, we carry out research and teaching at the University’s campuses at Streatham, Exeter, and Penryn, Cornwall. Our research is world leading and we believe our size and quality enable us to not only develop world leading research, but to also offer a wide range of postgraduate programmes that are dynamic, flexible, and taught with a high degree of commitment and skill . With us you have the chance to study at postgraduate level in a supportive environment with excellent facilities and amenities in a strong postgraduate community. Our location offers you the security and atmosphere of a separate campus, but within walking distance of an up-and-coming city centre. A VIBRANT CITY Exeter itself is the regional capital city and has excellent transport links and amenities. There are direct trains from Exeter St. David’s to London Paddington and Birmingham New Street, both of which take approximately 3 hours journey time. Exeter has a population of 118,800 and is notable for its low crime rate. The city has a relaxed atmosphere and provides year-round entertainment to suit all tastes. Every summer Exeter plays host to a large-scale arts festival featuring many international performers from a vast range of disciplines. Our high quality of life has encouraged many major firms, most recently the Met Office, to relocate here. Devon enjoys one of the mildest climates in the UK. A BEAUTIFUL LOCATION The College of Humanities is based on the University’s Streatham and Penryn campuses. However, we currently only offer Masters programmes at our Streatham campus, Exeter. Our Streatham campus covers 250 acres of landscaped parkland. The campus is only 10 minutes walk from the train station and 15 minutes walk from the city centre. Students describe the campus’ atmosphere as “personal, friendly and safe”. The campus also houses a shopping centre, bars and Exeter’s main theatre, the Exeter Northcott Theatre. The surrounding countryside is another benefit; the university is within easy reach of areas of outstanding natural beauty, such as Dartmoor, Exmoor and the Devonshire coast.
