University of Exeter

The University of Exeter is an open research college in Exeter, Devon, South West England, United Kingdom. The college was established, and received its Royal Charter in 1955, in spite of the fact that its ancestor foundations, the Royal Albert Memorial College and the University College of the South West of England, were set up in 1900 and 1922 respectively.

The University of Exeter combines world-class research with excellent student satisfaction at its campuses in Exeter and Cornwall. It is a member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities.
