Psychology ranked in world Top 100
The Department of Psychology at the University of Exeter is now ranked in the
top 100 in the recent QS World Rankings. Only 14 other UK institutions feature
in the top 100 Psychology rankings.
Exeter has one of the UK’s top Psychology departments, providing highquality programmes for highly-motivated students, whatever their background.
The Department’s teaching is inspired and informed by internationally-rated
research and is accredited by the British Psychological Society. The teaching
team comprises researchers in social, cognitive, and clinical psychology, and also
researchers in animal behaviour.
Professor Huw Williams, Co-Director of the Centre for Clinical
Neuropsychology Research commented: “This is great news as it reflects the
way in which our strength in research across key areas of psychology is increasingly
recognised as making a global impact. Such excellence in research informs and
supports our teaching, allowing our students to be at the cutting-edge in this field”.

Notice of withdrawal of ‘single’ CAS
procedure for pre-sessional students
In 2011, the University initiated a policy of providing a single CAS for those
students who were undertaking an [email protected] pre-sessional English
programme, up to a maximum of 10 weeks, followed by a Bachelors, Masters or
PhD programme at Exeter.
Please note this policy is no longer being continued. Instead, students who have
an offer for a University degree-bearing programme conditional upon successful
completion of an [email protected] programme of English will be supplied first with
a CAS only for the pre-sessional programme. They will then be issued with a
CAS for the University programme only once they have successfully completed
the INTO programme.
Only those students with an unconditional offer but who choose to spend five or
10 weeks on a pre-sessional programme will be permitted to have a single CAS.
