"The staff are really friendly and the lecturers are really approachable. The course is really interesting and whatever topic I have wanted to learn, we have done at Exeter. My course will help me to find a job because the modules have been so broad I will have so many transferable skills and the links with industry are great. Being an international student is fun, I've met a lot of other international students and people are really approachable which has meant I’ve made a lot of friends and met people to study with, as well as practising my English skills."
