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

  • I decided to study here because I felt I needed time away from home as I come of age and I’m in search to find what my passions are in the legal field.  
  • From an employable standpoint, coming straight from high school would give me an advantage as I return to Canada.  

What are the best aspects of studying within your department? 

  • The faculty has been very good at leading seminars and meeting one on one during time outside they have been most helpful. 
  • I’d say the resources on ELE have been very intuitive and accessible to access module content   
  • The iexeter timetable for planning your week 

How would you describe the vibe on campus?

During the day it’s usually busy with people going in and out from campus to get to lectures but I believe the vibe is immaculate during the night when everything is settled down you can hear people playing piano, dim lights and lively ambience.

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

  • The Canadian Law Society as Treasurer  
  • Peer Mentor in the Exeter PT Program  
  • The Volleyball Club as an Advanced Intermediates Player 
  • Member of the K-pop Society 
  • A fond memory was the K-Pop night @ Unit 1 where a DJ from Korea was invited and played so many memorable and iconic songs  

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

As treasurer, I’ve been learning to take more responsibilities managing under excel and the act of commerce through the act of selling tickets for revenue will be vital in the future.  

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

It was a culture shock for me when I first came but I found that being yourself and putting yourself out there, students and faculty will acknowledge you for that.   

What’s the best thing about living in Exeter? 

I think the best thing is just being able to have a work-life balance. I know some universities don’t have that luxury but at Exeter we have a very good balance between working and taking time to enjoy the things you are passionate about.  

Would you recommend Exeter to your friends?

I would highly.

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

To live in the moment and to never take things for granted because often you just don’t realise sometimes how nice the people are here and it’s important also to put yourself out there because there are people out there who definitely have the same thoughts as you.  

Has the University been supportive during your time here?  

I have found the support system here at the University very good.
