Exoniensis


Exoniensis

Exoniensis (usually abbreviated Exon.) is the post-nominal suffix given to honorary and academic degrees from the University of Exeter. The term is the anglicisation of the Latin for "of Exeter". In this way, it is equivalent to Oxon. from the University of Oxford, Cantab. from the University of Cambridge and Dunelm. from the University of Durham.

A graduate from the University of Exeter is called an Exonian, although other institutions also use this term.
