What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

The array of modules on offer to you, especially in your third year of a Maths degree, made studying really enjoyable and interesting because you could relate what you were learning to real aspects of life. The lecturers also massively helped to make the programme great as they are approachable and always willing to help or answer any questions.

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?

I was awarded the Unthank Prize in Mathematics, which is given to students with the best overall performance in a Single Honours Mathematics programme. It was a real achievement to get this prize as it meant all the hard work throughout my degree had payed off and been recognised.

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

I was a member of Concert Band, Saxophone Choir and Maths Society.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

My time at Exeter has been a rollercoaster of ups and downs but it has been so rewarding being able to move away from home, make new friends, live in a beautiful city and study. The main highlight for me was being able to meet new people, come out of my shell and joins some amazing societies. 

What will you miss the most about University?

I will mainly miss the friends I have made and lived with as well as the student lifestyle!

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?)

 For future and current students I would say make the most of the fantastic opportunities on offer whether it be academic or social to fully take advantage of everything Exeter has.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am joining Allianz on their graduate programme as an Actuarial Analyst, with aspirations to become a qualified Actuary.
