Description

UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF THE SOUTH WEST

This visit to the University of the South West, precursor of Exeter University, will commence at RAMM (the Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery) where we will learn how education was integral to the vision of the founders. From there we will move on to visit and learn about those nearby buildings erected at the beginning of the 20th Century to provide Schools of Art and Science, the Royal Albert Memorial College, teacher training for women (men had St Lukes) and the student hostel for women. All this was the realisation of the concept to provide excellent third tier education for all in the South West.

It was not until 1955 that the college was granted full university status.
