Why did you decide that Exeter was the best place to study? 

Exeter was my first choice for postgraduate study due to its beautiful campus, prestigious academic reputation, and value for international students when compared with other Russell Group universities.  

What are the best aspects of studying within your department?

Having a designated space for students attending the University of Exeter Business School makes it easy to network with students on similar courses. Most of my lectures and tutorials are within the same building and there is plenty of support from staff at the front desk.

How would you describe the vibe on campus? 

The vibe on campus is relaxed yet engaged. People are constantly heading to and from spaces, but they are smiling and mingling along the way. It is hard to feel stressed with so much greenery and open space on campus. 

What activities are you taking part in?  Which clubs/societies or facilities/activities do you enjoy the most? 

I am very involved with the Business and Finance society as well as the Canoe Club. Every week there is at least one social event or organised trip available to me so meeting new people is a constant and enjoyable process. Attending a society is an incredible way to meet new people and there are so many at the University that there is bound to be a place that suits everyone.  

What particular skills are you gaining from this experience, will this help you in your choice if career? 

Communication is definitely the most important skill I have been developing here. Communicating properly with lecturers, in the way I form my arguments, in the way I network with new people. 

How have you dealt with any challenges/difficulties during your time at the University of Exeter?    

Practice, practice, practice! There have been so many opportunities to interact with people, explore the city and to share my story. The more I put myself out there, the more comfortable I feel. 

What’s the best thing about living in Exeter?

For me, the best thing about living in Exeter is the beauty. The rolling green hills and historical architecture makes this city feel like a small close-knit town. Being able to cycle across the city in under thirty minutes makes everything super accessible. So close to the sea too! 

Would you recommend Exeter to your friends?  


What advice would you give students planning on coming to the University of Exeter?  

Try and get in touch with your new flatmates and people on your course before you arrive. The social aspect of university is very, very important so getting a head start on it is extremely valuable. Also, look at the available clubs and societies! 

Has the University been supportive during your time here? 

Although I have not had much personal communication with some of the University services so far, I can always rely on the Maths Helpdesk when I’m struggling with new content on my course. It is lovely to have a safety net in place.
