University of Exeter

A Russell Group university with outstanding teaching

At the University of Exeter, we offer exciting study opportunities in beautiful and historic surroundings in South West England. Studying a Masters with us is a great way to gain a competitive edge in your field or obtain specialist training in a particular subject area.

As a member of the prestigious Russell Group of top UK research universities, we pride ourselves on providing exceptional teaching and an excellent student experience. We were one of only a few Russell Group institutions to receive a sought-after triple gold award from the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF 2023), and at the same time ranked in the top 10 Russell Group universities for six out of seven student satisfaction themes (National Student Survey 2023).

World-class research that makes a difference across the world

The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2021 review showed that we are doing more research, of better quality, with a bigger impact on the world than ever before. Our world-leading research impact grew more than any other Russell Group university, more than 99 percent of our research was rated of international quality* and 12 of our subjects were in the Top 10 for world-leading impact.**

Our ambitious Strategy 2030 aims to use our outstanding education, research and global connections to lead meaningful action against the climate emergency and ecological crisis; make key breakthroughs to transform human health and wellbeing; and lead the progress towards creating a fair, socially just and inclusive society.

* Research rated 4* + 3* + 2* in REF 2021
