BSc Business and Management
"I think the best thing about my course is definitely the resources available through the University’s portals, as I can practically find anything I want there including books and articles that might be useful when writing assignments. Besides that, tutors, lecturers and seminar teachers are very open to students emailing them about concerns and are willing to meet up to further explain parts of the modules that I find hard to understand."
LLB in Law
"I highly appreciate the drop-in hours that are provided for students who need extra reassurance in their progress towards understanding concepts within the lectures. It really helps with articulating my thoughts and allows me to build a friendly relationship with my lecturers, showcasing the supportive nature that the University of Exeter has to offer. "
BSc Computer Science
"One thing that surprised me in my time here is that I didn’t experience much (if any) of a culture shock. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, I quickly made friends and built myself a little family of friends from all over the world and hey help me keep balanced and not miss home so much."
Edward says "Be constantly aware of what goes on around the world, till the point you're able to understand all perspectives and able to read between the lines" Since finishing his degree, he has been working in a green technology company and loves "the creative excitement of impacting and helping the world."

"I enjoyed that the programme was flexible in terms of modules and schedule. It allowed me time and space to explore other experiences outside of my degree. The biggest highlight was that I got to meet lifelong friends, many of whom I am still in touch with."
"The University is an extremely student friendly place. The campus is truly amazing-lots of greenery and the Sports Centre is very well developed. There are always different events for students to develop themselves."
"I enjoyed doing my Psychology degree as it allowed me to understand the complexity of the human brain and thought process. It was fascinating to be a student in this field of study as we learn how human psychology is affected by biological, social context and as we age."
PhD in Education
"Exeter is my home far away from home. It’s a peaceful city where I literally know everyone."
BSc in Psychology
"I enjoyed the extensive coverage of the Psychology programme. It covers a range of different aspects of Psychology, ranging from clinical psychology to statistics and research methods. The programme exposed me to the various potential fields in psychology and as such, this widens my future career selection options."
"The University has been the right choice for me, undoubtedly. Its healthy mix of focused study and welcoming social environments, as well as the support that the staff are willing to provide makes the process of going, surviving and thriving at university not only achievable, but relatively easy to accomplish. Going to university could very easily turn into a daunting process without the right kind of support and environment, and I have been fortunate enough to find comfort in both here."
