Country: United Kingdom
Subject of study: Geography
Year of graduation: 2023
Type/Level of study: Undergraduate

What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

The location. Cornwall is full of rich geography – from commodification of towns, to its agricultural environment – it is the perfect place to study how people and place interact.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

My highlight has been working with staff and other students in a calm environment. We work hard, but also find time to chill. 

What will you miss the most about University?

The culture on campus – everybody is super friendly!

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?)

 Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Try new things and you might just surprise yourself!

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

Currently applying for jobs. (I hope to have one by September – so maybe this bit should be left out of a profile until I find one!?)
