What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

The aspect of my degree I enjoyed the most was the opportunity to go on various geological field trips and form a more practical grip on the subject. I also enjoyed the community feel of the Camborne school of mines, and how it was easy to approach any of the staff members in regard to any questions I may have had.

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

CSMSA and CSM Cricket.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 The outstanding highlight of my time at the university was meeting new people, and carrying out my mapping and research project on the geology surrounding the glorious Land’s end area.

What will you miss the most about University?

I will miss the way of life of university and having the freedom to do work when I want and use the brilliant facilities that the campus has to offer.

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 would tell other students to make the most out of all the opportunities that university provides and don’t take anything for granted, especially when everything was limited recently during the pandemic.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I have got a job for an exploration company operating in Cornwall.
