What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I found most enjoyment in the academic growth experienced as a consequence of overcoming the various academically-stimulating challenges posed by my programme’s materials, professors and peers on a daily basis.

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

I was member of The University of Exeter Law Society and The Canadian Law Society.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 The highlight of my time at Exeter was interacting with professors and peers during tutorials and seminars. The lively discussions that these smaller-group interactions brought forth were conducive to fostering the academic growth necessary to flourish in Law School and develop the analytical skills required to grow as a law student.

What will you miss the most about University?

I will miss my professors and peers most as contributing members of The University of Exeter’s thriving academic and student support culture.

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?)

 The University of Exeter comprises a supportive community that prioritises student success and well-being. As a result, The University of Exeter fosters a thriving culture of student support invigorated by its staff and students. I would advise current students to contribute to The University’s supportive culture by joining societies and helping peers through the academic and personal challenges integral to undertaking a degree in law. As for prospective students, I encourage application to The University of Exeter and advise them to contribute to Exeter’s existing diversity and international culture integrated within University study.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

After graduation, I plan on undertaking the licensing process to practice law in Ontario, Canada.

I especially enjoyed being a part of the Access to Justice Clinic as one of my final-year modules during my degree. Gaining real-life experience and helping people with legal issues they otherwise wouldn’t be able to tackle was an incredibly rewarding experience.
