What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

Campus weeks were a brilliant experience from an educational and social perspective for connecting with fellow apprentices. My favourite modules were the ENM and RAD 002

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 received a deans commendation and an award in my third year for high marks. These awards meant so much as I felt that the hard work had really paid off. I also win at the Exeter university research awards for my 3rd year project on soft tissue foreign body detection. This was a surreal and amazing experience as it was so unexpected.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 The university staff are a very inspiring team and it gave me the drive to get into research. Winning at the research awards gave me a spot to present my work at the undergraduate research conference in Warwick. I then went on to present at multiple conferences and had the honour of collaborating with two of my lecturers to publish my work in a peer reviewed journal.

What will you miss the most about University?

I’ll miss the inspiring atmosphere and opportunities to connect with fellow apprentices.

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 your lectures and your lecturers. The teaching staff are such a brilliant source of knowledge and expertise. Make the most of it while you can and be proactive with your studies to get the best from your university experience.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am now training as a sonographer whilst practicing as a diagnostic radiographer in Cornwall. I hope to continue to build my research skills and get involved with some future research projects in imaging.

I am very proud of being part of the first cohort of radiographers to qualify from the apprenticeship route introduced by Exeter University. I have loved meeting people from across the country, making lifelong friends as we supported each other through learning and working in a pandemic whilst tackling a completely new course.
