About University: One of the lesser-known recipes for happiness is to live in a place where other people choose to go on holiday. Students at Exeter are likely to have permanent smiles on their faces: it has campuses in the cathedral city and also near Falmouth, in Cornwall, as well as plenty of coastline, countryside and glorious weather. Add to that the fact that the Streatham campus is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful in the country, and that Exeter is rated one of the best universities in the UK for "ents", and it's no wonder that increases in applications far exceed the national average. Of course, you'll have to do some work, too - Exeter has an excellent academic reputation.
