Is this Program Right for You?

Exeter campusThe University of Exeter gives students great academics taught by knowledgeable professors in a one-of-a-kind campus environment through this direct enrollment program. Exeter, in southwest England, has something for everyone, and the University of Exeter offers a range of courses for every interest. In fact, Exeter is one of the most popular and prestigious universities in the UK with one of the most beautiful campuses.  The University is in a small British city with a college town setting in the countryside along the beautiful coast of southwest England only a few hours from London.  AU students can now join the thriving student body at Exeter and directly enroll to take courses. 

Studying in England is very different than what you might be used to.  Students are expected to study outside of class to retain a large portion of their subject matter.  Unlike universities in the United States, the majority of each student's grades in England is based on one or two large assignments or solely on the final test - not on class participation or attendance.  This study abroad experience will provides AU students an independent experience with the opportunity to get to know students from Britain and all over the world.
