What our international students say about Exeter
Ananya from India
BA Management with Marketing
"The years spent studying in Exeter have been the best years of my life. I was able to make friends that turned into family and become more independent. Studying with students from all around the world means you get to learn about different cultures and how they think about the same topic differently. Through this experience, I have been able to develop my communication skills a lot more and have learnt to be more confident about the choices I make and the actions I take."
Chinonso from Nigeria
MSc Environment and Human Health
"I was attracted to the course as the programme was taught by experts and researchers from diverse fields (including Public Health, Environmental Epidemiology, Psychology, and Economics) at the European Centre for Environment and Human Health, thereby making the course robust and unique. My biggest highlight was when I received a report that my MSc thesis was graded as a Distinction (83%)."
Renee from China
"The University of Exeter has always been one of my top choices since high school, and the modules here are interesting. The facilities and campus are also extremely nice, while the students here are very helpful. I was always very interested in Psychology, especially about how the brain works, the different mental illnesses that people have and why. Based on these interests, I thought that studying Psychology would be appropriate for me."
Maxwell from the USA
BSc Business Economics
"One of the main skills I’ve gained is learning to really prioritise the things that are meaningful to me. Before university, my parents would help me manage my time or would choose my priorities for me, but when I am here I have the freedom to choose. It’s definitely made me more disciplined."
Sineeporn from Thailand
MA in International Relations
"Exeter has contributed to fulfilling my dream as it provides a Career Zone to help students seek job opportunities in the UK and oversees. There is a wonderful campus environment and great atmosphere that is suitable for studying a Masters degree."
Daria from Russia
BSc Medical Sciences (Pharmacology & Therapeutics)
"The Medical Sciences degree was challenging, but I thoroughly enjoyed learning so much about science and human health. I’ve made wonderful friends along the way and done a myriad of fun things with them from Christmas Balls and End of [Sport] Season Dinners to Exmouth beach trips and Varsity rugby matches. I am extremely sad that my time in Exeter has come to an end, but I am wholeheartedly looking forward to using acquired knowledge and skills in the new chapter of my life! #bleedgreen #exeteruni #exeterforever"
Alston from Hong Kong
"The University is famous for its excellence in teaching. There are lots of senior and experienced lecturers. I like it as it is a campus based University, which means that many resources and buildings are easily accessible. It is also very quiet, yet an exciting city with passionate students and teachers. I believe that this can provide me with a relaxing university experience that I will never forget. Exeter may be small, but there is always good food everywhere. Not only local cuisine, but Chinese, Japanese and Thai cuisine."
Vanessa from Colombia
"I decided to come to the University of Exeter because it was the only university that offered me such a great variety of optional modules so I could study what I am really passionate about. Having the Colfuturo-Ayudar scholarship means I do not have worry about having a part-time job or paying for accommodation, food, etc. It means I can focus on my studies, extracurricular activities and travelling."
