How the University supported me during COVID-19...

Animated arrow

The pandemic is obviously a difficult situation for everyone, but it’s so clear to me, and other students, how hard our teachers are working to support us now. I did have in-person teaching in first term, and that was really good and felt really safe. We were all in a big lecture theatre spaced away from each other and the windows were open, so it was nice to have that blended with online learning.

My lecturers were very supportive of me flying back home before term ended to be safe with my family, and gave me extensions on my deadlines. There was also great provision of welfare and financial services for those in unfortunate circumstances.

One of my favourite things about student life at Exeter is the sports facilities. Last year, I joined the basketball club and found it a really good way to have fun, relax and make friends. I also love the gym and sports facilities as they are really well equipped.
