What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I enjoyed all the modules my degree had to offer however my favourite aspects would have to be the time spent on placement in a variety of hospitals and the Pathology and Image Interpretation module. I also enjoyed being located on St Luke’s with all the other Health Science and Medical courses.

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 received the Dean’s Commendation alongside some of my incredible peers. This award is especially meaningful to me as it represents and acknowledges the hard work and effort I put into my degree across the three years.

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

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

The highlight for me would have to be meeting so many people from a variety of different courses and backgrounds. Exeter gave me the opportunity to meet so many amazing people who have gone on to become a massive part of my life and formed a critical part of my university journey. These bonds I have created have helped support me throughout my three years at university and made the experience so memorable.

What will you miss the most about University?

There are so many answers that come to mind when asked this question which reflects how positive my experience at Exeter university was. I will miss the City of Exeter which had so much to offer all within walking distance. I will miss the learning and access to all the libraries and online literature that helped supplement my learning. Finally, I will miss the community I became part of and all the amazing people I met.

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 attend an open day before applying to ensure you have a good understanding of the course you are applying for, and the modules offered as well being able to get a feel for the city and campus and the accommodation provided. Ask as many questions as possible online or at the open day!

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I have now been working in the Royal Berkshire Hospital for two months as a HCPC registered Diagnostic Radiographer. I plan to complete my Preceptorship here and progress to the role of Senior Radiographer in the next couple of years.

The ratio of academic learning to placement and they the placements were in long block so we were able to really get to know the staff and hospital which meant that I felt apart of the radiography team.
