Exeter is located in the heart of Devon, surrounded by countryside and close to the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, meaning there are plenty of opportunities for adventure. Despite being a small city, Exeter is one of the most attractive and historically interesting cities in England. The city’s varied cultural scene and diverse mix of eateries means it is renowned as one of the foodie capitals of the South West. The quayside and town centre are host to a great mix of independent shops, boutiques, cafes and bars.
Offering you the best of both worlds – The University of Law’s professional legal training courses are combined with the outstanding student experience and stunning surroundings of The University of Exeter’s Streatham Campus.
You will have many opportunities to get involved in a rich sporting and social life. You can take part in activities run by tutors such as editing legal news publications, set up student-led extra-curricular societies, or join the University of Exeter Students' Guild as an associate member.
The campus has workshop rooms that are made for interactive learning and lecture theatres that are small enough to mean that students are an active part of the learning experience and can interact with our tutors. Our library allows you to have access to online resources as well as access to all the law reports and reviews you’ll need.
Our dedicated on-site employability team can guide you through applications and help you to find exciting work experience and pro bono opportunities that will boost your career prospects. Local firms regularly visit the campus to give talks explaining their recruitment cycles and what they are looking for in future employees.
At Exeter, our tutors and staff are dedicated to helping you achieve your education and career ambitions. You can benefit from our tutors’ experience as all of them are qualified lawyers, and you will be allocated a personal tutor who will support you throughout your studies.
