Megan Remillard (Kenyon-Exeter programme 2014/15) shares her experiences of Exeter

I decided to come to Exeter because it has such a well-respected English department - I knew that studying abroad would be an enriching experience where I’d have to learn to operate in a new environment independently.  I really enjoy the level of immersion I’m getting in my studies as I feel like I can really focus on delving deeper into my courses and interests.

My typical day at Exeter would involve going to a seminar and lecture, getting a coffee from Queen’s Café, read/ do work for class, go to the Streatham Campus gym, return home, cook dinner, hang out with my housemates and then go to bed!

At Exeter, I’m continually surprised at how beautiful the countryside is and how much fun can be had tromping around fields and muddy paths.  Also, some of the stereotypes about Americans were hilarious to me!

My advice for students considering Study Abroad is it’s best to keep an open mind. Your time abroad will never be as glamorous as you’d like to think, but it’s probably better for that! I definitely feel more confident in my ability to function in a foreign place.

I guess my biggest tip of all is to not be shy. If you’re only here for a year or a semester, you have to be more forward than you think you should!
