BSc Biological Sciences

"I had always heard such good things about the University of Exeter and when I came to the Open Day, it did not disappoint! I loved the campus; it had such a great feel to it and promoted the biological sciences department really well with welcoming current students to answer any questions. The sports opportunities are also amazing!

There is a great community vibe on my programme, on campus and throughout the sport I do. You get to know people really well and receive lots of help from the lecturers. The university as a whole is a very supportive and proud community. There are always so many opportunities to get involved in extracurricular activities, including intramural sport, supporting big games and attending large events.  

I love how you can walk everywhere in Exeter and student housing is close by. The town is ten minutes away and it makes you feel like you know the whole city inside out, and will almost always bump into someone you know. It's a lovely area with lots of greens space, and we're close to the coast and to the moorland, so have a great mix of everything.

The lecturers are a great support throughout the course. They are always quick to reply to emails and happy to chat and talk further about topics of interest.You can tell they want the very best from us and want us to be inspired to take their research further.

The time has gone so fast and I've had so many opportunities throughout my time in Exeter. I'm applying and doing things I would never have thought of when I first started university, showing how much my course and the whole experience really benefits you."
