About this university
Students from some 140 countries come to Exeter each year to study and the International Student Support team are available to help them with matters such as immigration inquiries and visas issues as well as organising orientation programs and events taking place both on and off campus. They also run language classes for those who need to work on their English and produce newsletters filled with help and advice about living in the UK. They start with pre-arrival information to help students before they even arrive in Exeter. The Students Guild is the representative of the students at the university and organises the over 200 societies and clubs available to those attending Exeter. It is also responsible for arranging the annual Balls, though each residence hall also holds their own. These range from theatre companies to creative writing clubs, debate societies and volunteering projects. There is a student newspaper, TV station and a radio station. In sports, the Exeter University Athletic Union is responsible for the various sports clubs and organisations as well as sorting fixture lists. There are 49 clubs run through the university with around 5000 students taking part as well as another 3000 involved with intramural sports and sport volunteering programs. Most teams take art in the British Universities and Colleges Sport leagues.
