What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

The wide variety of modules available such as behavioural economics, game theory, econometrics and international economics.

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 asked to be an Economics Scholar in my final year. This meant teaching first year tutorials and working alongside academic staff in the department. I was also given a Dean’s Commendation for my academic performance in 2nd and 3rd year and the Ken Penney Memorial Prize for microeconomics.

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

I was part of Exeter University Concert Band and the Clarinet Choir.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 I loved the chance to get involved in so many different aspects of uni life such as teaching, societies, etc.

What will you miss the most about University?

The gorgeous campus! I’m a big fan of green spaces so loved sitting in Reed Gardens during study breaks or just being able to see trees outside the lecture room windows.

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 the most of every opportunity! Exeter has so much to offer so get involved as much as you can.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am currently taking a year to work and travel, and am interested in a career in the civil service or charity sector.

I loved the flexibility and variety of module options available, which allowed me to fully tailor my degree in whichever direction I wanted. For example, in my final year, my module choices were 100% optional, meaning I was able to choose modules I was most interested in and could also choose modules according to my strengths.
