1. What has been the highlight of your time at Exeter?

It is so hard to pick one highlight, but I’d say the first year in halls was great. Meeting loads of new people, in a completely new environment with the freedom to manage your time however you want, is awesome.

2. What will you miss the most about University?

I will miss the people that I’ve met throughout the three years, from so many different backgrounds and experiences. You build relationships that will last way beyond the time at university.

3. What did you enjoy about your particular programme?

I really enjoyed the field trip to Berlin during second year. We were given the freedom to undertaken our own research in a city, which was a really great experience.

4. What advice would you give to current and future students?

I think it’s important to really get involved in life outside of academic work, especially through societies and sports. It gives you so many opportunities to meet new people and offers experiences that are unique to university.

5. What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I’m aiming to have a year out doing various things. Ideally I will use the year to gain experiences in the branding and marketing world, but I’m also considering the idea of a ski season or work at a surf camp. The hope after that is to start a graduate programme for the September 2019 entry. But we’ll see…
