Are you joining us to study?

We're looking forward to welcoming you to the University of Exeter, to Cornwall, and to your journey of discovery through law and business! On this page, we have set out some resources which we hope you will find helpful as you prepare to join us:

  • Frequently asked questions.
  • Suggested resources for you to look at before you begin your studies.

We know that different students have different experiences and expectations of university life. If you have any other questions, you're welcome to get in touch with us.

How can I get in touch if I have questions about the course?

You are welcome to e-mail us at

Am I expected to know about law and business before I come to university?

No! We don't expect you already to have studied either law or business. Apart from fulfilling the entry requirements, all you need is a healthy interest in both subjects.

Do I need any special software to take part in the course?

The University will provide you with access to all the software you need, including Microsoft Office. You do not need to buy any software for this course.

What provisions is the University making for COVID-19?

You can find out more about the University's provisions on the main website.

Where can I find out about the University's student accommodation?

The University provides accommodation both on and off campus, which you can find out about here.

Where can I find out about student societies, including sports clubs?

The Students' Union is home to over 150 student societies and sports clubs. The campus has a sports centre, including a sports hall, gym, classes, and the like.

Where can I find out more about the campus?

We don't expect you to do any reading before joining us - but if you would like to, here are some suggestions provided by staff and students (note that these are not course texts/materials - and so we don't expect you to buy them):
