International students


What have you been doing since leaving Exeter?

I was a non-traditional PhD student at Exeter, starting the programme age 50 and working full time throughout the program in addition to school. So no significant change in career except a shift in focus and perspective.

What did you enjoy most about your programme and what was the biggest highlight?

My two supervising professors - Dr. Mark Wilson and Dr. Martin Jones - were outstanding. They were absolutely the highlight of my experience.

What did you enjoy most about studying here?

An expanded worldview. I'm based in Colorado in the United States and had only been out of the country a handful of times. While doing my PhD, not only did I have the opportunity to spend time in the UK, but when speaking at conferences, also explored Germany, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, N. Ireland and other countries. It was a very valuable time.

Why did you choose to study at Exeter?

It's a long story, but Dr. Martin Jones' area of expertise and his kind welcoming of me and guiding me through the initial process was the deciding factor.
