What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

The varied nature of the course! In my second year, I was able to choose the specialism in which I was most interested. This paved the way for me to choose a dissertation topic that was aligned with my own interests and succeed! If you’re unsure, don’t worry! You’re still able to stick with the core pathway and get to choose from a larger variety of modules which best suit you and your interests/ambitions.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 There have been many highlights for me during my time at Exeter. However, the biggest for me was graduating in the presence of my family and friends! My dream since I was a kid was to one day walk up the ramp in my graduation gown and collect my degree certificate and make my parents proud. To say that becoming the first to graduate in my family was one of the proudest moments of my life would be a massive understatement!

What will you miss the most about University?

My friends! I would not have been able to make it through the rigorous hours of study or exams without the friends that I had made throughout my years in Exeter.

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?)

 The support that the university provides is incredible. The careers service in particular is phenomenal! Utilise the university’s resources to the best of your abilities whilst you can. One thing I regret is not joining more student societies as I put a lot more effort into studying. However, it is absolutely possible to find a balance between study and play!

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am currently looking to further increase my research skills as a clinical research assistant/research assistant. However, I’m seriously considering coming back to Exeter to pursue Medicine, so if you see me back on campus, chances are I’m officially a medic!
