What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

The depth of knowledge and the skills which I could develop such as critical thinking and critical reflection.

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 was the class representative of my programme, and I won an award of the exceptional contribution to the academic experience. It means a lot to me as it boosted my self-esteem and self-confidence as well as this award pushed me to work harder and harder to achieve great things in the future!

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

Rethinking society.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

I would say the people I met here and the relationships we forged all together. It is important to have a second family at university who supports you and is there for you when sometimes things do not go your way. 

What will you miss the most about University?

I am doing my PhD now in Exeter. But if I left Exeter, I would miss the student life in here which is vivid and exciting!

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 speak English, embrace the language and life in the UK as it is quite astonishing to do a degree in a foreign language, so be proud of whatever you do.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I am doing a PhD in education now.

The programme introduced me to philosophies, methodologies, designs and methods that should be adopted in any educational research. I feel it is a pre-request for any future researcher.
