About the University of Exeter and the Scholarship

St. Luke’s College, Exeter School of Science, Exeter School of Art, and Camborne School of Mines were established in 1838, 1855, 1863, and 1888, respectively. These organizations combined to form the new university in the wake of the University of Exeter’s 1955 royal charter. Exon is the abbreviation for Exeter University (from the Latin Exoniensis) in post-nominals, and this is the suffix used for both academic and honorary degrees from the institution.
