Students share their experiences of living and studying at the University of Exeter

Student life



Medical Society (Exeter MedSoc) is a society run for the students by the students. With socials, sports teams, educational micro-teaches and MedSoc balls, you can ensure your social life at Exeter will be thoroughly enjoyable.

Medical Sciences Society

The Medical Sciences Society provides a social environment for course members, and aims to give an opportunity for all years of the course to meet one another outside of academic activities.

Radiography society

We have a lively community of Medical Imaging students who run the Radiography Society. Social meetings and events are organized throughout the academic year and provide excellent opportunities for getting to know your fellow students and most importantly having fun!

Other academic societies

Non-academic societies

With over 200 societies to choose from, covering everything from Baking to Longboarding, and Dancing to Theatre, there really is something for everyone. Take a look at the Students' Guild website to find more societies that might interest you.


Charity and volunteering work

Our students are hugely active when it comes to charity and volunteering work. No matter what your interests are, we have a society that you can get involved with. Here are a few examples:

Exeter Student Volunteers

ESV is the Students' Guild’s largest student group; dedicated to facilitating volunteering within the local community, and making you more employable.


Sports Park

St Luke's Campus has its own Sports Centre which offers superb fitness and swimming facilities for students and staff on campus. The centre has recently benefited from a £45,000 investment in new gym equipment bringing state-of-the-art technology to the workout of its members. Find more information about the St Luke's Sports Centre on our Sports Park website.

Athletic Union

The Athletic Union (AU) currently boasts 50 active sports clubs, all of which are student-led by an elected Club Captain and their committee. Each club welcomes athletes of all experiences and abilities whether you are Olympic standard or simply want to try out a new sport whilst studying. For more information please see our Student Sport pages. 

I think aside from the course itself, I have most enjoyed the variety of opportunities there are for literally anything. I have always been someone who finds it difficult to say no to things, hence my extensive list of both extra and intra-curricular activities. For me, I would say the biggest highlight would be both the opportunities presented to you, and the support you receive from those around you whilst pursuing them.
