“My time at the University of Exeter provided me with one of the most unique and enlightening experiences that I have ever had.

Tovah Ross
Exeter, Fall 2005

After three months I found myself with new friends that span six continents, with a new perspective on the legal realm and with a wealth of experience from not only living in Exeter but from my travels throughout Europe.

The Culture

Exeter is a pleasant provincial city of about 100,000 people located in the County of Devon, a part of England known for its attractive countryside and seacoast. Exeter’s rich history indicates both Celtic settlement on the banks of the River Exe and also Roman settlement indicated in the remains of a fortified city wall. As a major trading port in the 13th century it also became the site for a canal system used to improve trade and commerce in the 1500s.

Exeter offers a number of places to explore: historic buildings in the cathedral close, Roman walls, the Quay, remains of St. Nicholas Priory, St. Mary Steps, "The House That Moved" inch by inch, and the extremely narrow Parliament Street. There is also an ancient cable ferry, known as Butts Ferry, which takes people across the River Exe. The town center features a good number of shops and restaurants within 20-minute’s walk from the University. In past years, Connecticut students and faculty have enjoyed living in the Exeter community and exploring the countryside.  

With students from over 140 different countries, academic staff staff of 50 different nationalities, and links to several universities worldwide, the University of Exeter offers a truly international, cosmopolitan student experience, as well as a safe learning environment in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK. The University has about 18,000 students in its graduate and undergraduate programs. It has earned a deservedly good reputation as an intellectual center; besides its Faculty of Law, there are faculties in a number of academic disciplines including the arts and sciences.
