Våra studenter kräver en hel del av oss och vi av dem - vi strävar efter att göra vår undervisning inspirerande och din lära exceptionella.

Forskning-inspirerade undervisning

Våra lärare är mer än föreläsare undervisar från böcker. De förbinder ledande forskning inom ditt ämnesområde. Nittioåtta procent av vår forskning är klassificerat som världsledande eller internationellt erkända (Forskning Excellence Framework 2014). Du kommer att undervisas av experter och vara en del av en kultur som är inspirerad av forskning - du kommer att diskutera de allra senaste idéerna i seminarier och handledning och kan bli en aktiv medlem i en forskargrupp.

På Exeter studenter sätts i systemets hjärta och försedd med den kompetens och strukturer för att uttrycka sina egna åsikter och önskemål. Höga nivåer av tillit investeras i eleverna att forma sin egen universitet erfarenhet och konsekvenserna är mycket givande.

Studenternas Guild är där för att underlätta och styra denna, och den positiva relation vi har med universitetet ger idéer om förändringar att komma till stånd.

Denna unika kultur främst uppnås genom det arbete som våra engagerade Subject representanter och förändringsagenter systemet, men varje elev uppmuntras att återkoppling och samarbeta med samhället som omger dem. Här, Alla är välkomna att vara en del av det här samhället, och hur studenter och personal samlas på evenemang som undervisnings utmärkelser, till exempel, summor upp detta. Efter att ha röstat i tusental för personal som de vill fira, studenter sedan ombedd att gå med personal på en fantastisk prisutdelningen, se människor från hela campus och ännu längre går samman för att känna igen hårt arbete.

Vi har också en skuggning system, med studenter efter högt uppsatta medlemmar av personal för en dag och personalen ekar detta genom att skugga dem i gengäld. Jag deltog i det senaste året, delta i möten med vicerektor för utbildning, Janice Kay, som sedan kom till mina föreläsningar och seminarier senare denna vecka. Det finns inga divisioner här, vi alla arbetar tillsammans och alla känner lättillgänglig.

Historia


To celebrate the educational and scientific work of Prince Albert, and inspired by the Great Exhibition of 1851, Exeter School of Art in 1855 and the Exeter School of Science in 1863 grundades. I 1868, the Schools of Art and Science relocated to Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Queen Street, Exeter and, with support from the University of Cambridge, blev den Exeter Technical and University Extension College i 1893.

I 1900 its official title was changed to the Royal Albert Memorial College and the college moved to Bradninch Place in Gandy Street. The college was again renamed to the University College of the South West of England i 1922 after the college was incorporated under theCompanies Act and included on the list of institutions eligible to receive funds from the then University Grants Committee. As was customary for new university institutions in England in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, the college prepared students for external degrees of the University of London.

Alderman W H Reed, a former mayor of Exeter, donated Streatham Hall on the Streatham Estate to the new University College in 1922. Streatham Hall was renamed to Reed Hall after its benefactor. På samma gång, the first principal of the University College, later Sir Hector Hetherington, persuaded the Council of the College to buy a major portion of the Streatham Estate. A slow move to the Streatham Estate from the centre of the city occurred over time. The first new building erected on the Streatham Estate was the Washington Singer building; the foundation stone was laid by the Prince of Wales (later King Edward VIII), then President of the University College of the South West of England. Byggnaden öppnades 1931. The first of the purpose-built halls of residence, Mardon Hall, öppnats i 1933. The second academic building on the estate was the Roborough Library named in recognition of the interest taken in the development of the college by the first Lord Roborough, one of its early benefactors. Roborough Library was completed around 1939.

De University College of the South West of England became the University of Exeter and received its Royal Charter in 1955, exactly one hundred years after the formation of the original Exeter School of Art. Queen Elizabeth II presented the Charter to the university on a visit to Streatham the following year.

The university underwent a period of considerable expansion in the 1960s. Mellan 1963 och 1968, a period when the number of students at Exeter almost doubled, no fewer than ten major buildings were completed on the Streatham estate as well as halls of residence for around 1,000 studenter. These included homes for the Chemistry and Physics departments, the Newman, Laver and Engineering Buildings and Streatham Court. Queen’s Building had been opened for the Arts Faculty in 1959 and the Amory Building, housing Law and Social Sciences, followed in 1974. In the following two decades, considerable investment was made in developing new self-catering accommodation for students.

Gifts from the Gulf States made it possible to build a new university library in 1983 and more recently have allowed for the creation of a new Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies. A further major donation enabled the completion of the Xfi Centre for Finance and Investment. Eftersom 2009, significant further investment has been made into new student accommodation, new buildings in The Business School, and the Forum: a new development for the centre of Streatham Campus.

I 1838, the Exeter Diocesan Board of Education resolved to found an institution for the education and training of schoolmasters, the first such initiative in England. Som ett resultat, a year later, the Exeter Diocesan Training College was created in Cathedral Close, Exeter at the former house of the Archdeacon of Totnes, adjacent to Exeter Cathedral. The first Principal was appointed and the college opened in 1840.

Expansion followed, och i 1853, John Hayward (who was later responsible for the design of the Royal Albert Memorial Museum) was commissioned to design a purpose built premises for the college on Heavitree Road. Byggnaden, largely built in grey limestone from Torbaywith Bath Stone dressings, was completed by the autumn of the following year. På 18 oktober 1854, after a service in Exeter Cathedral, an opening ceremony for the new buildings was held. From this date in 1854 (St Luke’s Day), the college was unofficially known as St Luke’s. The college’s intake in 1854 var 40 studenter.

In parallel, at the Royal Albert Memorial College, an initiative within the Arts and Sciences department in 1912 eventually led to the formation of an Institute of Education (of which St Luke’s College was a constituent member) and a separate department of Extra Mural Studies for the purposes of teacher training. Exeter Diocesan Training College was formally renamed to St Luke’s College Exeter in 1930 and became co-educational in 1966.

I 1978, St Luke’s College Exeter was incorporated into the University of Exeter. A faculty was created incorporating the university’s Institute of Education and St Luke’s College Exeter into a new School of Education.

The Peninsula Medical School was established in 2000 in conjunction with the University of Plymouth and the National Health Service, based at St Luke’s and the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. The School of Dentistry opened in 2007 och, together with the Peninsula Medical School, created the Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry. St Luke’s campus is the main site for the University of Exeter Medical School, which accepted its first students in 2013.

During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Cornwall was among the most significant metalliferous mining regions in the world. Camborne School of Mines was founded in 1888 to meet the needs of this local industry.

Camborne School of Mines was located in the centre of Camborne for almost a century but, following major investment by the international mining industry and others, relocated in 1975 to purpose-built facilities mid-way between Camborne and Redruth. Significant expansion and diversification of teaching and research provision occurred during the 1980s and early 1990s, including the development of undergraduate and taught postgraduate degree programmes in geology, environmental science and surveying. I 1993, Camborne School of Mines was incorporated into the University of Exeter.

Initiatives by the University of Exeter and others to expand the provision of higher education in Cornwall resulted in the Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC) initiative in 1999. As part of this initiative, Penryn, just outside Falmouth, became the site of the Penryn Campus, a facility shared with Falmouth University. Camborne School of Mines relocated to Penryn during 2004 when the university’s new Cornwall Campus opened.
