What do our students think?

Exeter College has allowed me to further my education when the time was right for me. It has not only offered a high standard of teaching and a welcoming environment but it also offered the social aspect of being a student. I am halfway through my BA in Business Management and enjoying every second. Lecturers go that extra mile to make you feel at ease and understand what you are doing."

Being able to study and work at the same time has not only helped in terms of earnings but has also given me a direct relationship between study and practice. I appreciate the smaller lecture groups where I can ask questions and interact with tutors and classmates."

The course allowed me to study part time and continue to work full time. The content of the course was relevant to different parts of the company I worked for and as I studied I learnt more about the organisation. I am now working as part of the management team and the company are sponsoring me with my continued studies."
