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

I am someone that enjoys smaller cities with lots of greenery, and found out Exeter was a place like that. The fact that the University of Exeter has one of the best business schools also further motivated me to study here.

Describe your typical day at Exeter 

After lectures and seminars, I usually participate in badminton or archery sessions almost everyday besides working on the tasks given to me.

What are the best aspects of studying within your department?

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.

How would you describe the vibe on campus?

The vibe on campus is mostly really nice, as long as you reach out first and make the first move, most people would be happy to socialize and become friends especially in the first few weeks of University. Moreover, a lot of events and booths are set up in the Forum each week to support students with mental health, women’s rights and even house hunting which is very useful.

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

I take part in the badminton and archery club , I like badminton the most because it provides me a place to socialise and meet people from different years and courses. Additionally, the badminton club hosts meet ups outside of campus every week to help people grow closer which makes the club very fun and engaging.

What skills and experiences have been most useful for your career?

Through each module I take, I get to learn more about individual topics in more detail not only from the slides and lectures but also from special guests that are invited to share their real life experience with us. I think that has helped me understand the scope my degree can bring and that there is so much out there still for me to discover. 

What’s the best thing about living in Exeter?

The fact that everything is walking distance including parks, city centre, and the University itself which makes getting to places for sports, leisure and studies easier.

Would you recommend Exeter to your friends?


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

I would advise them to ensure they are ready to be in a small city with a lot of greenery, but most importantly they must ensure the course and modules they choose are what they will enjoy studying as that would be the biggest advantage of being in the University of Exeter.

Has the University been supportive during your time here?

Yes they have, everything leading up from accommodation to studies has been supported well. Any issues and concerns I have has also been taken care of very fast by the University.
