The Economic Impact of the University of Exeter

Economic Consulting Team

Oxford Economics

The University of Exeter is one the UK’s 24 Russell Group universities, providing education and research opportunities across its campuses throughout Devon and Cornwall. The University generates economic activity and employs thousands of academic and professional services staff in the local economy, and supports activity by spending money with suppliers across the UK.

The University also attracts expenditure to Exeter, Cornwall, and the wider community by recruiting students from around the world and other parts of the UK, while retaining local students to study at the University of Exeter. In addition, visitors of these students also spend money within the economy.

Through all these channels, the University makes an important contribution to both the local Exeter and Cornwall economies in which its campuses are located, the wider South West of England region, and the rest of the UK economy.
