About the University of Exeter and Scholarship
A public research institution called the University of Exeter is located in Exeter, Devon, England, in the United Kingdom. In 1838, 1855, 1863, and 1888, respectively, St Luke’s College, Exeter School of Science, Exeter School of Art, and the Camborne School of Mines were founded. Following the University of Exeter’s 1955 royal charter, these institutions merged to establish the new university. The University of Exeter is referred to as Exon. (from the Latin Exoniensis) in post-nominals, and this is the suffix used for both academic and honorary degrees from the institution.
Streatham and St. Luke’s in Exeter, Truro and Penryn in Cornwall, and Streatham and St. Luke’s in Exeter make up the university’s four campuses. The university’s main location is in Exeter, Devon, where it serves as the primary higher education facility. The largest campus, Streatham, is home to many of the university’s administrative structures.
