I chose the University of Exeter because of its great global university ranking. The courses here are really interesting and the tutors are excellent. During my time here I have attended some interesting conferences that were suggested by my tutors and they have been really useful for my studies and have broadened my vision of Law.

The University of Exeter is not like other universities, it is a beautiful location without the noise of a big city. It is a great place for study.

You won’t regret it if you choose it!
