What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

Being able to take part in fieldwork in some modules and for my dissertation.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 Being able to expand my knowledge significantly in my field, whilst being able to go to the beach at any point.

What will you miss the most about University?

Socialising with my peers in between lectures and having ease of access to many journal papers without having to pay extra.

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?)

 Enjoy yourself, don’t push yourself too hard. Do your best without compromising your well being. Talk to others and build a support base, help each other out, it is not a competition.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I will be doing an internship working in the Faroe Islands, with Ocean Rainforest. This entails helping with research and cultivation on seaweed farms. Following this, I intend on pursuing a Master’s degree.
