A Masters at the University of Exeter is a great way to gain a competitive edge in your field or gain specialist training in a particular subject area. At Exeter we combine teaching excellence and high levels of student satisfaction with world class research. A member of the Russell Group, our success is built on a strong partnership with our students and a clear focus on high performance.

We recognise the financial challenges facing masters’ students and this year we are making available more than £4 million worth of scholarships. Combined with the UK government postgraduate loan scheme, bursaries and crowdfunding opportunities, there are many ways to make studying a Masters affordable.

MAKING EXCELLENCE AND ASPIRATION OUR BUSINESS
We’ve taken just over a decade to establish the University of Exeter Business School as one of the UK’s leading institutions. We’ve achieved this by striving to be the best we can be, bringing together inspirational and internationally-respected business teachers from around the world in an environment that combines historical and intellectual heritage with modern facilities.
What we have achieved so far is already remarkable - our students at undergraduate, postgraduate and executive levels are consistently measured at the very top of performance indicators; they also rank amongst the most satisfied and most successfully employed students in the UK. Research conducted at Exeter is internationally respected, and is helping to shape the world we live in.
We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far, but we want more. Our students come here from more than 80 different countries and they choose Exeter because they aspire to achieve the best they can, and that is exactly our aim. We are as ambitious as an institution as the students and staff that come here, and we intend to become a leading business school - not just in the UK, but in Europe and across the wider world.
We’ll continue to invest in the very highest calibre teaching staff and facilities. We’ll commit ourselves to innovative research and we’ll build on our relationships with industry and society. And we’re equally committed to ensuring our students leave Exeter having had a great time, with all the skills and knowledge they need to build exciting and fulfilling careers.
