I never thought I’d do a Masters but I enjoyed my undergraduate degree at Exeter so much that staying here for postgraduate study was the obvious choice. The £1,000 progression scholarship was a real bonus and applying was really easy through the fast track system. Doing a Masters has not only helped build my knowledge - it’s helped with my confidence, my research skills and my communication skills. It’s set me up for my career.
