INTO University of Exeter
The University of Exeter is a public research university based in Exeter, South West England. A member of the Russell Group of UK universities, it combines excellence in teaching and research. It was awarded gold in the first Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in recognition of the high quality of its teaching. 98% of its research was rated as international quality in the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF).

It has its origins in the Exeter School of Art and Exeter School of Science, founded in 1855 and 1863 respectively. The schools merged, becoming the Royal Albert Memorial College, then the University College of the South West of England and finally in 1955 the University of Exeter, when it received its Royal Charter.
The University is spread across four campuses: Streatham and St Luke’s in Exeter, and Penryn and Truro in Cornwall. In 1993, Camborne School of Mines was merged into the University of Exeter.
