"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."

"As a PhD student, my supervisors were the main reason to come to study to the University of Exeter. Both of them have a lot of experience in my research topic and my principal supervisor has been really supportive during the application process to University and while I am starting my PhD. The University shows concern and care about their students. There is always someone or an online resource you can use in order to understand or figure it out what you need."
"The Exeter MBA was an experience that broadened my perspective to an unimaginable level. The global leading expertise of the professors and lecturers gives critical perspectives and tools from various disciplines essential for leading in a fast-changing world. The biggest highlight of the programme is its approach to responsible and caring leadership and focus on sustainability. It is about being successful businesses that, at the same time, are purposeful and responsible. "

"The Ayudar Scholarship to study at Exeter completely transformed my life: career wise and personally. Studying at Exeter opened many doors due to its excellent reputation and rich alumni network. Since finishing the course I have enjoyed a wider range of positions in research and industry in the UK, Spain and Colombia."
MSc Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture

MSc Applied Data Science (Environment & Sustainability)
"What I liked the most about the University of Exeter and specifically my programme is that it is led and supported by research institutes like the Environment and Sustainability Institute, the Institute of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, and the Centre for Environmental Mathematics, as well as the facilities, technical and technological resources, and of course the well-qualified academic staff."
MSc Exploration Geology
"I enjoy all the facilities you can find on campus. From the comfortable and well-equipped classrooms to the gym, library, and social spaces. I find it interesting to have a pub on the campus. One of the best ways for discussing geology is by drinking a pint with your classmates and professors."
MA Theatre Practice
