A Masters at the University of Exeter is a great way to gain a competitive edge in your field or gain specialist training in a particular subject area. At Exeter we combine teaching excellence and high levels of student satisfaction with world class research. A member of the Russell Group, our success is built on a strong partnership with our students and a clear focus on high performance. We are the fastest growing research-intensive university in the UK and 98 per cent of our research was rated as international or world-leading quality in the last national Research Excellence Framework.
We recognise the financial challenges facing masters’ students and this year we are making available more than £1.5 million worth of scholarships. Combined with the UK government postgraduate loan scheme, bursaries and crowdfunding opportunities, there are many ways to make studying a Masters affordable. You can search for funding on our website.

The College of Life and Environmental Sciences brings together the complementary disciplines of Biosciences, Geography, Psychology and Sport and Health Sciences to provide a rich and diverse interdisciplinary teaching and research portfolio.
We are committed to pursuing world class research that impacts positively on the world. Our research is frequently interdisciplinary in nature, embracing disciplines within and outside of the College and combining expertise from across humanities, social sciences and sciences.
We play a significant role in contributing to the University’s Science Strategy, and three of the five constituent key research themes: climate change and sustainable futures; systems biology; and translational medicine, personalised healthcare and public health.
We place considerable emphasis on providing outstanding research-led teaching and to creating a learning environment that offers a rich student experience to those who study in the College. Our degrees have high academic standing and are designed to prepare students optimally for employment or further training in a wide variety of professional careers.
Through our programmes and associated opportunities, we aim to equip students with the discipline-specific and generic skills and experiences that are highly sought by employers. Support is available to students from staff throughout the College and also from services elsewhere in the University, such as the careers services.
