The University of Exeter combines world-class research with excellent student satisfaction, from our campuses in the South West of England, in Exeter and Cornwall. We are one of the very few universities to be both a member of the Russell Group and have a Gold award from the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), evidence of our established international reputation for excellence in both research and teaching. Our success is built on a strong partnership with our 30,000 students – from 150 countries - and a clear focus on high performance.  Based on the vibrant St Luke’s Campus, the University of Exeter Medical School is critical part of the University’s Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, and enjoys a world-leading reputation in several areas of research. The Medical School has three departments and is home to 500 staff and almost 3,000 students.
