New Students -University of Exeter

The Penryn Campus is shared and jointly managed by University of Exeter and Falmouth University in an arrangement that is unique within the UK. With over 4000 students studying here there’s a great community feel and access to state of the art facilities. The majority of University of Exeter students study at the Penryn campus, with a limited number based at Truro.
