      EVENT DETAILS
      UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF THE SOUTHWEST

      UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF THE SOUTH WEST This is our second visit to the South West, precursor of Exeter University.  The first, on 10 July, proved so popular that it became almost immediately fully booked.  On Thursday, 18 July, our visit will commence at 11 am 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 founders' concept of providing excellent third-tier education for all in the South West.  It was not until 1955 that the college was granted full university status. We are planning to lunch at RAMM after the walk.  If you wish to join us, there is no need to book.
