BA English and History with Study Abroad (Penryn Campus)
What has been the highlight of your time at Exeter (Penryn campus)?
Co-organising the ‘Once Upon a Ball’ with the other Tremough English Society committee members. When I first came to university, I hated doing anything that involved public speaking, including managing events. Doing this event with my friends from the society made me realise how far I’ve come. The event itself was really fun too, even if we did say so ourselves!
What will you miss the most about University?
My friends; we’ve supported each other and made some great memories over the years, whether it’s been studying at the library or having a BBQ on the beach. It’s going to be hard when we all go our separate ways, but we’re definitely all coming back to visit at some point, so it’s not going to be forever.
What did you enjoy about your particular programme?
Going on study abroad to Australia was the best part of my whole degree. I got to see places like Uluru and the Great Barrier Reef, and met great friends who I’ve stayed in contact with to this day. I’d give anything to go back there again.
What advice would you give to current and future students?
Make the most of your time here! My best moments at university have come from the societies I’ve joined and the people I’ve met along the way. Throw yourself into everything you do, and you won’t regret it.
What are your plans now that you have graduated?
I’ve just been offered a job at Chambers and Partners as a writer researcher, which I’ll start at the beginning of August. Someday, I’d like to come back to university and do an MA in Creative Writing – right now, I’m looking forward to starting work and doing something I love.
