Type/Level of study: Undergraduate

What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

The great variety of modules to choose from, especially in my final year.

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

Surfing Society, Politics Society, European Society, Women in Business Society.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 The social events after exam season.

What will you miss the most about University?

Relaxing with my friends on the forum stairs during study breaks.

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?)

 Make use of the weekly office hours for advice on essays, look at the compulsory assignments of each module before you make your module selection! For international students: book your flights and trains home as early as possible to avoid high prices. National Express and the Stagecoach Falcon (buses) are oftentimes a lot cheaper than trains so if you have a lot of time to get to the airport look them up before booking expensive trains!

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I will move to Milan in August to complete a master’s degree at Bocconi University for which I have been granted a full merit scholarship
