What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I enjoyed being able to study a variety of different modules in different areas of law that interested me the most.

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 have been awarded the IPAN prize in Intellectual Property, which is awarded to the student with the highest mark in the Intellectual Property module. This award means a lot to me as I found the IP module one of the hardest modules I picked in third year. Therefore, to find out the hard work paid off is very rewarding.

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

Throughout my time at Exeter I was a member of the trampolining club, swimming and ladies cricket.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

The highlight of my time at Exeter has definitely been attended society events such as balls and the Enchanted Garden Ball each year!

What will you miss the most about University?

I will definitely miss the lifestyle and the people I have met at Exeter the most.

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 sure to enjoy your time at Exeter as it goes by very fast! 

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

Now that I have graduated I plan to go travelling for a bit to see different areas before coming back to England to hopefully start a career in law.

I thoroughly enjoyed the variety of modules available during my final year, which allowed me to explore areas of law that I was genuinely interested in. In particular, I loved working in the Exeter Community Law Clinic as part of the Access to Justice module, as I was able to use the knowledge and skills I had acquired to provide free advice to real people facing a wide range of legal issues. I found this experience to be both rewarding and extremely beneficial for my professional development.

What I enjoyed most from my time spent studying law was the problem questions. They were fictional scenarios based around something we had studied, requiring us to apply the law to specific facts and predict the likely outcome if the situations were real. This exercise significantly enhanced my critical thinking skills and mirrored the real-world application of law, providing valuable practice for my future legal career.
