What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I loved my degree at Exeter because the Neuroscience course is quite small so you get to know most of your year group, as well as all your lecturers. This makes it a really relaxed and friendly atmosphere and it is easy to ask questions at any time. A highlight of my four years as an Exeter student was spending my third year in Cambridge working in the Neuroscience department at AstraZeneca. Completing this during the pandemic opened my eyes to the amazing work the company was doing around the world and I can’t thank Exeter enough for giving me the opportunity to take a placement year.

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

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 The highlight of my time at Exeter was seeing everybody again at graduation, it was such a fun day and the best way to celebrate 4 years of hard work. It allowed me to reminisce all my favourite memories of Exeter and the atmosphere was brilliant. All of the Exeter staff made graduation really special for me and my family and it is a day we will always remember!

What will you miss the most about University?

I will miss living with, or within a 10 minute walk of, all the amazing friends I made whilst at Exeter. I definitely made friends for life during my university experience and I couldn’t be more grateful for them. I’ll really miss them but I’m sure the distance now won’t separate us.

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 say take every opportunity you get! Whether that is going out with new friends in Fresher’s week or applying for internships you don’t think you’re qualified for, you don’t know unless you try and it might turn out to be the best thing you do.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am going to do a Masters in Neuroscience at the University of Oxford in September, and I’m still figuring out what might come after that!
