EXPERIENCE EXETER

PARK S T R SPO


ADVENTUROUS UNFORGETTABLE Exeter’s campus is large and diverse enough that anyone can easily find their ‘circle’ and find something to do that they enjoy. I found students to be friendly and welcoming to international students of all backgrounds. DEIRDRE SHERIDAN, KENYON COLLEGE

If you can, do it for a year instead of six months – I managed to make life-long friends during my year abroad! HARRY JORDAN, UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES

The things I am enjoying most about my semester at the Penryn Campus are all the great people I’ve met and the laid back summer-like, friendly atmosphere that this campus exudes. Oh and the volleyball, I’m about to embark on a weeklong trip to Majorca with the team! PAUL BRANDON, THE UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA
