Prospective students

We're delighted to welcome new students on to our degree programmes each year, and below you can find information that may be useful to you when preparing for the start of one of our degrees.


Personal laptops and tablets

It is worth noting that if you have a Chromebook or similar then you may not have the necessary memory and/or processing power to use this when doing work associated with our core modules. However, please note that PCs will be available to you to use on campus should you wish.



Most teaching of the Q-Step core modules are carried out in our Computational Computer Lab in the Clayden Building (pictured below). 

The Q-Step Centre can currently be found in the Clayden Building. However to support our work and encourage collaboration with other important research areas, the university is building a new purpose built facility on our Streatham Campus in Exeter. The new North Park building will provide state of the art research and teaching facilities and space to inspire stimulating interdisciplinary activity. The building will be constructed in phases. Q Step will move in to bespoke space in the building in phase three opening in July 2024.


A-Level Maths

Whilst we do believe Core Maths at A-Level is useful to all of our students, there are no requirements to hold either Maths A-Level or Core Maths A-Level in order to join our undergraduate programmes.
