Research at Exeter
As a Russell Group University our research makes a difference across the world. We are leaders in cutting-edge science, engineering, mathematics, and medicine research, and have a world-class reputation in the humanities and social sciences.
We are constantly seeking new ways to engage with government, industry, and the community in order to build productive, sustainable partnerships and tackle some of the fundamental issues facing humankind.
We believe the future of research lies in breaking down traditional barriers between academic disciplines so the bigger problems of the 21st century can be considered from human as well as physical perspectives.
