University of Exeter
Tremough - 70 acres The University of Exeter (usually abbreviated as Exon. for post-nominals) is a leading red brick university in the South West of England. Most of its activities are located in the city of Exeter, in Devon, where it is the principal higher education institution. It is a member of the 1994 Group, a network of smaller research-intensive universities in the United Kingdom. British newspapers currently tend to rank Exeter among the top twenty higher education institutions in the UK (see "Academic reputation", below).
Exeter has three campuses: Streatham, St Luke's (both of which are in Exeter) and Tremough in Cornwall. The Tremough campus is maintained in conjunction with the University College Falmouth under the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) initiative.

The University coat of arms symbolises the historical associations of the University with the locality. The triangular gold castle with three towers comes from Exeter's coat of arms and is thought to represent the Rougemont Castle as alluded to by the red background. The 15 gold Besants round the edge of the shield are from Cornwall's coat of arms whilst the green cross on the white background is from the Devon County Council's coat of arms. The theme of learning is symbolised by the book with gold edges and a Latin motto "lucem sequimur", translating as "we follow the light".

Coat of Arms
Ninety-eight per cent of subject areas at Exeter were rated 4, 5 or 5* (of national or international standing) in the 2001 UK Research Assessment Exercise.
Also according to The Sunday Times University Guide 2005, the University of Exeter was rated Excellent for 20 subjects, including Archeology; Business and Management; Classics and Ancient History; Computer Science; Drama, Dance and Cinematics; Economics; Education (continuing professional development); English; French; Geography; German; Italian; Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research; Molecular Biosciences; Physics and Astronomy; Politics; Psychology; Teacher Training; Theology and Religious Studies.
In the most recent university league table (Times Good University Guide 2007), Exeter was ranked joint 28th with Glasgow University.
The Sunday Times' university league table for 2006 placed Exeter 18th in the UK, up seven places from 2005. Exeter was ranked 20th in the UK in 2003.
Exeter was also runner-up for University of the Year for the third consecutive year. " Exeter's excellent record merits special recognition as runner-up this year. Students here are some of the most satisfied in the country, ranking it on the fringes of the top 10. High entry standards and low dropout rates further entrench its standing." Sunday Times, 10 September 2006
The Guardian's 2006 university rankings placed Exeter at 28th in the UK (after erroneously reporting the university at 48th place). The Times' league table also placed Exeter 18th in 2006, up 6 places from the previous year.
In the National Student Survey 2005, Exeter was ranked joint 10th nationally for overall satisfaction. The results put Exeter in the top 25 per cent of UK universities for learning resources (such as IT resources) and for course management and organisation.
In the 2006 National Student Survey, Exeter was ranked joint 11th, and the School of Business & Economics was ranked 1st in the country for Business, Accounting & Finance and Management.
For the coming academic year The University of Exeter has seen a rise of 23.8% in applications for places – one of the highest rises among universities in the country.

Students at Exeter are represented by a Guild of Students, which exists to raise money for five nominated charities, and collects in town centres around Britain every weekend. RAG events are run by students, under the co-ordination of a full-time member of staff. The main aim of these societies and activities groups is to provide opportunities for student development. The Guild of Students was renamed the Students' Guild in 2005.
There are over 100 affiliated student societies, ranging from the Theatre Company and Creative Writing to the LDYS, Conservative Future, and Socialist Students societies. There are a large number of sports clubs, although the Athletic Union (AU) is now a separate body from the Students' Guild but strong links remain. The Debating Society which predates establishment of the university, started life in 1927 as The Exeter Debating Society, with the inaugural speaker being Anthony Eden.
Students are represented by a sabbatical team consisting of a President, Deputy President (based at the St. Luke's Campus), Finance, Activities and Trading Officer (FATO, Formerly General Secretary), Education Officer, Welfare and Equal Opportunities Officer and the Athletic Union President. There are also other non sabbatical officers representing areas of the student population and student activities areas. These are elected by students in a series of elections throughout the academic year.

The University has undergone an investment programme worth more than £235 million [1] in recent years. £38 million has been invested in new student accommodation, including the new Holland Hall, named after the former vice-chancellor of the same name. £8m has been invested in sports facilities, including a professional-standard tennis centre. A £1m upgrade has been carried out to the students' union building and nightclub and £1.5m has been spent improving access for people with disabilities. In October 2002, The Peninsula Medical School, a partnership between the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, admitted its first students of medicine. In 2005, the new Xfi Centre for Finance and Investment opened, the result of a multi-million pound gift from an anonymous donor. Thanks to a donation of £650,000 from the Ruler of Sharjah, His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohamed Al-Qasimi, an extension has been added to the also recently constructed Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies Building. In 2006, the Department of Drama completed a major renovation. The Department of Drama's state-of-the-art £3 million Alexander Building was named after the former University Chancellor Lord Alexander. A new £28 million Peninsula Dental School, a partnership between the Universities of Exeter and Plymouth, will open its doors in October 2007. The dental school will have places for 62 graduate entry students each year. The South West of England Regional Development Agency is investing £9.7m in phase II of the University of Exeter Innovation Centre. The project is currently under construction and will create a 38,000 square ft building for use by new and growing businesses within the development and research sectors at the university's Streatham campus. Phase I of the Innovation Centre was finished in 2000 and houses high-tech businesses from the software, biomedical sectors to advanced manufacturing and internet firms.

New developments
For nearly 40 years Exeter was the only university in the south-west peninsula, and as such it sought to offer the maximum number of academic disciplines. By 1995 the University had nearly 50 separate departments and centres. Its Research Assessment Exercise performance in 1996 was poor, and this was widely attributed to the absence of large strong units. As a result, an internal working party recommendation a reorganisation into a smaller number of Schools (18, now reduced further to 11, though the two schools of the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry have been added), with the abolition of the traditional Faculties of Arts, Science etc.
Despite this internal reorganization, the University again entered the 2001 RAE with substantially more disciplines than most comparable universities, and consequently with smaller units. Since 2000, the University has therefore undergone a further process of restructuring in order to focus on areas of strength. In 2004, it closed two departments (chemistry and music) that had been suffering low student demand for a long period, and had failed to achieve a 5-grade in any of the RAEs. At the same time, the University stopped offering single honours degrees in Italian, also a subject with poor RAE performance and low student demand. Although similar moves elsewhere had attracted little attention, a media storm blew up around this issue at Exeter, perhaps because of the high profile that the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Steve Smith, was taking in UK university politics at the time (for example, he had just been appointed as Chair of the 1994 Group). There was also protest within the institution. The closures eliminated 130 jobs, and the AUT questioned the University's financial figures.; shortly afterwards, his own institution, the University of Sussex, made a similar proposal, though this is currently stalled.

In 2006, the University commissioned a feasibility study into the future of the St Luke's site, the location of the Schools of Education and Lifelong Learning, the School of Sports and Health Science, and the university's part of the Peninsula Medical School. The Vice-Chancellor stated that the "problem is one of success, that is if these three Schools achieve their planned expansion ... then we will simply run out of space at St Luke's.", the consultants' advice was that the middle path of moving one School was the most financially sensible, and it is likely that this is what university management had always intended.
