What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

Naturally, there are many enjoyable parts of a degree. I most enjoyed the comradery amongst the students on my course, often facing difficult problems and gruelling hours, enduring it amongst friends made it enjoyable.

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 Water and Environment Project Prize for the best individual project on this subject matter. I am honoured to receive it and glad my efforts on my third-year project produced work which is highly regarded.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

My 3 years Exeter has been such a great time, finding an example an individual highlight is difficult. I have loved the people I’ve been surrounded by, the green campus itself, and the societies which have been a big part of my life at Exeter. 

What will you miss the most about University?

The freedom of being a student surrounded by friends in the beautiful county of Devon.

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?)

 Go for it. It is an open, kind and helpful university held in esteem academically.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am working as an Audit assistant at RSM in London.
