International students


Why did you choose to study at Exeter? 

The University is one of the best in the UK and it was a great opportunity for studying the Maitrise.

Describe a typical day

I would go to my morning lectures which include French and English law and then I would go for a bodysoc session, Zumba or body combat. I usually go home and study and then head to work at the Hole in the Wall, a local pub. I am part of the Body Society as well as UNICEF which I enjoy a lot.

What are the best aspects of studying in your department?

The Law department provides good connections and networking events with big firms and professionals in every field represented by the university and its courses.

How would you describe the vibe on campus?

Friendly and welcoming.

What particular skills are you gaining from this experience?

I am gaining confidence and self-esteem by meeting other people and welcoming new students (via my Student Ambassador role).  I am increasingly participating in university life. 

What’s the best thing about living in Exeter? 

The city is student friendly and small enough to get around easily. The shopping and facilities are good.

Was there anything about your experiences at Exeter that surprised you? What advice would you give students thinking of studying at Exeter?

I was pleasantly surprised by the kindness of the staff and people in general in Exeter and on Campus. I would recommend getting involved in something you are interested in such as sport or politics or art and don’t pressure yourself in to finding friends as Exeter is full of friendly people. I would recommend visiting campus to make sure you can see yourself living here.  Also bring a supply of cheese if you don’t enjoy cheddar!
