What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I really enjoyed the depth of teaching and opportunities to learn about different fields of mathematics and applications of the material.

Some of the students were are profiling have in addition to their degree been awarded a departmental prize or award in recognition of their exceptional achievements. If this applies to you please can you tell us about the award you have received and what this award means to you?

Institute of Mathematics and its Applications Prize & Met Office Prize.

Please tell us if you were a member of any societies, groups or sports clubs?

Yes: Evangelical Christian Union, Extunes, Jazz Orchestra, Concert Band, Footlights, Brass Ensemble.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

Meeting lots of great people, including from my local church in Exeter and the Christian Union. 

What will you miss the most about University?

Exeter had a really great culture of involvement, and great opportunities to learn.

What advice would you give to current and future students? (If you are an international student what would you like to tell future students from back home who might be thinking about applying to study in Exeter?)

 I think it’s worth ensuring that you work at your degree from the start. Staying on top of the material as you go makes it more enjoyable and means that you won’t have a mad panic coming up to deadlines and exams, and will make your life easier in the long run.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I’m volunteering part-time for a local church in Exeter and working part-time in data analytics for a company in the Science Park work to cut down the emissions of the UK transport industry.
