The Fully-funded International Ph.D. in Engineering is offered for a Ph.D. degree in Business. This scholarship is provided by the University of Exeter. The University of Exeter is a public research university in Exeter, Devon, South West England, and United Kingdom. Its predecessor institutions, St Luke’s College, Exeter School of Science, Exeter School of Art, and the Camborne School of Mines were established in 1838, 1855, 1863, and 1888 respectively.
These institutions later shaped the University of Exeter after getting its royal charter in 1955. In post-nominal, the University of Exeter is shortened as Exon. (From the Latin Exoniensis), and is the suffix given to honorary and academic degrees from the university.
Streatham is the core campus, sitting on a hillside, one side that looks down across Exeter city center. The Independent has labeled the campus environment as ‘sublime’. The campus has several galleries, including the Bill Douglas Cinema Museum. A Sculpture Walk comprises pieces by Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
There is a bar called the ‘Ram’ and a bar (previously called the ‘Ewe’) within a nightclub named the Lemon Grove (or ‘Lemmy’), both run by the Students’ Guild.

Many halls of residence and some self-catering accommodation are situated on this campus or in the near vicinity. The Northcott Theatre resides on the campus.

In the 2018/19 admission series, the university gave out offers to only 4.7% of the international applicant to the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (BMBS) program making it one of the most competitive medical schools for international applicants in the UK, in comparison, 24.7% of UK/EU applicants expected offers in the same admission cycle. In the 2016–17 academic year, the university had a residence breakdown of 75:6:19 of UK: EU: non-EU students respectively with a female to male ratio of 55:45.
