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

I really enjoy being in nature and Exeter’s campus is full of greenery and very beautiful. The natural beauty of the campus is one of the biggest stress busters.

Why did you choose your current programme of study?

I enjoy talking to new people and trying to understand them. I believe that for any business, understanding customers and knowing how to market what your selling and making it look attractive is the most important. I believe my current programme will help me understand consumers and people better.  I enjoy trying to find the most efficient method to sell products and trying to create new products. 

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.  It will make living in different parts of the world a bit easier.
