About Us


Falmouth and Exeter Student’s Union is a membership-led charity; run by students, for students. We are the only Students' Union in the country to represent students from two different universities.

We aim to ensure that every student has the highest quality of education and best student experience possible during their time studying in Cornwall. We provide representation for all our students, and deliver quality services that meet the needs and interests of an ever-changing and diverse student population.

The SU represents you

The student voice is at the heart of everything we do! Although we are quite a small SU, we have one of the highest levels of student participation in the country. Your elected representatives are there to listen to you and speak on your behalf to the University and other institutional bodies. They work hard to ensure your voice is heard!

We make your student experience more enjoyable

The SU provides societies, sports clubs, volunteering opportunities and chances to be politically active and represent your coursemates and colleagues. We also organise a wide range of events and activities specifically for you. We aim to provide something for everyone – but if you can’t find what you are looking for, you can always propose something new. It’s your Union! 

The SU supports you

Life at University can sometimes be challenging. The SU offers confidential and objective support and advice on anything from financial concerns, to welfare, to accommodation and course queries, at any stage of your degree. We are here for you from the run-up to the first time you arrive here, right up until the day you graduate.

The SU is award-winning!
