What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

How interdisciplinary the course was: both Philosophy and Theology had such a wide range of modules that allowed me to narrow down my interests to what I wanted to study.

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

Publicity Officer- Philosophy Society.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

Discovering my passion for Philosophy, Theology, and Psychology (which I will be doing in September as a Masters). Exeter Uni has been the best experience, and I have loved every second of it. The modules, the lecturers, and the friends I’ve made have been absolutely wonderful and I would do it all over again if I could. 

What will you miss the most about University?

The support from the lecturers in Philosophy and Theology- both departments have been so kind, encouraging, and supportive towards me and my degree. I will miss them lots!

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 yourselves! Choose modules that appeal to you, join societies that you have a passion for, and utilise the spaces on campus- it is a beautiful campus. And never be afraid to ask the lecturers for help: they are always willing to be of help to you!

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

 I will be starting a MSc Psychology (conversion) in September at the University of Exeter.
