BA Classics

What has been the highlight of your time at Exeter?

What I have enjoyed most would be the opportunity to study a subject about which I am truly passionate alongside like-minded fellow students with whom I have forged friendships that will last a lifetime.

What will you miss the most about University?

When I eventually leave the main thing which I will definitely miss will be the positive environment both of my college faculty and the University as a whole which have made working at Exeter such a joy.

What did you enjoy about your particular programme?

My personal statement displayed my enthusiasm for ancient myth and literature – topics which the programme at Exeter enabled me to pursue in a manner both informative and entertaining.

What advice would you give to current and future students?

Don't be afraid to talk to your lecturers because they are always there to help. Also stay true to who you are, work hard but also try to have fun along the way.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

First of all I intend to carry on my studies to a Masters Degree, followed by a PhD in due course.
