President Exeter


SU President Exeter

Hey there!


My name is Joe and I’m your President Exeter. My role is to represent the voices of the University of Exeter students at our Cornwall campuses in Penryn and Truro to the highest levels of the university. My focus is to use your feedback to ensure you have the best academic experience while you’re studying here.

I graduated with a BSc in Zoology in 2019 and have loved spending three years in Cornwall studying at Penryn campus. Studying here gives you so many opportunities, especially as we share our campus with Falmouth University. This is a unique collaboration so make the most of it!

Everyone in The Students' Union is here to provide you with the best experience they can while you are studying here. We use your feedback to make the changes you want to see whether this comes from the Rep Online System or chats with me. I will take your comments and work with the university on your concerns and make it clear what you want to see more of.

The year is set to be very exciting and super busy for all of us, please make the most of The Students' Union throughout the year and never hesitate to get in touch if you have any problems, come in to the office, message me on Facebook or drop me an email.
