It's the 'University of Exeter' too, not 'Exeter University' :D
Problem is the Uni colours are green and white :(


Hey! I went there many years ago and that's where I fell in love with Devon, played in the Uni teams and we were 'Exeter University' as far as I remember! Poncy rebranding, I say!

It was always officially the "University of Exeter". It certainly was in 1971 when I started there (nearly 49 years ago, bloody hell I'm old...). Though everyone called it Exeter University for short.

Man Alive! Bleddy Hell.....someone older than me! Ha ha! I started in 1977! I'll doff my hat to your greater experience but I never walked around saying I went to the 'University of Exeter'!

Nicky Law, what do you do for a living?

A. I'm a football player for Exeter City.

B. I'm a player of football for the City of Exeter.

Poncy AND bad English 😁

Definitely University of Exeter


Probably the reason there is a Guild of Students rather than a Students Union.

it’s for the next week. Pain up the backside. Aberdeen flies to nowhere and all flights are no inflated up here because of business travellers. Assume it’s a similar problem for Exeter airport.
I see you can fly with Logan Air from Aberdeen to Bristol, but you're right they are very expensive. From Bristol Airport the Falcon bus runs hourly direct to Exeter.

Flybe flights were often very good value. Usually they were significantly cheaper than the train. Not being able to get customers to pay a higher ticket price, is the reason they went bust.
