Postgraduate student life

It's a common misconception that postgraduates don't have time for socialising compared to undergraduates, and while it’s true that postgraduate study is very academically demanding, that doesn’t mean there’s no time for anything else. Managing your time effectively can help you enjoy yourself; many postgraduates find that by studying during office hours they can leave evenings and weekends completely free for sport, hobbies, and social activities.

With a little planning, you’ll find that postgraduate student life at the University of Exeter is just as rich and eventful as the undergraduate experience.
