      OUR HISTORY
                We’ve been dedicated to discovery and changing lives
                through education since 1851 when the Exeter Schools
                of Art and Science were founded.
                In 1922 we became the University College
                of the South West.
                In 1955 we became the University of Exeter.
                In 1978 St Luke’s College of Education (est. 1840)
                joined us.
                In 1993 Camborne School of Mines in Cornwall
                (est. 1888) merged with us.
                In 2004 we opened the Penryn Campus, expanding
                the provision of higher education in Cornwall.
                Today we’re a member of the Russell Group, recognised
                for both our research and teaching excellence.

       We’re still dedicated to discovery.
       We’re still changing lives through education.
       We can change yours.                                             Streatham Campus, early 1970s
