Campus C University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Cornwall
The Penryn Campus offers the very latest academic, research and residential facilities. Made up of around 4,000 students, the campus gives you intimacy and friendliness, in an arrangement that we think is unique as we share the campus with Falmouth University; a leading specialist arts institution. This combination creates a vibrant mix of students, with a diverse range of interests and backgrounds.
Though one of the smallest top ten university campuses in the UK, we excel in tackling some of the world’s biggest challenges through our research, which then informs our teaching. We do this in a way which students positively relish: students report exceptionally high levels of satisfaction with academic staff, improved communication skills and confidence.
The environment and sustainability underpin much of the ethos of the Penryn Campus. These themes consequently recur throughout our degree programmes as well as in student societies, clubs and the running of the campus.
Our newest development, the £30 million Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI), puts the University and Cornwall at the forefront of research into the solutions to problems of environmental change. Its work complements that of the University Medical School’s European Centre for Environment and Human Health, based on The Truro Campus. The Centre conducts world-class research into the interconnections between the environment and health. Specifically, its researchers investigate the health implications posed by a range of environmental threats.
Further improvements include the new Exchange Building which encompasses lecture theatres, an extended and refurbished library plus informal study spaces.
