What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I liked the fact that you continuously build upon your knowledge over the course of the degree, so you will still be using skills you learnt in your first ever lectures when you sit your final exams. I enjoyed pure maths the most, understanding how numbers work and how this can be applied to other circumstances.

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

Women’s rugby.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

My highlight was playing 1st team rugby in my second year, and being able to travel all around the country every week with my friends, even if it was a bit of a struggle to manage to fit all my lectures in!

What will you miss the most about University?

I will miss living in the wonderful part of the country that Devon is, with so much on your door step. I will also miss being around like-minded people and all the friends I made at university.

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 the time while you are there as it goes by so quickly. Don’t get too caught up on a single assignment or mistake you’ve made, move on and just try to rectify the problem in future.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am planning on taking a year out to find a local job and perhaps go travelling if possible. After that I will be applying to various grad schemes, including in the police.
