What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

I enjoyed the wide variety of module selection in my final year. More importantly, leading up to the final year all the mandatory modules were interesting and insightful. Lastly, the overall difficulty of the program is something I also enjoyed.

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

Canadian Law Society / Fintech Society/ Intramural Football.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

I could produce a highlight reel with all the amazing experiences I have encountered over the years at Exeter. Outside academia, my favorite highlight would be attending the Tar Barrels in Ottery St Mary, as well as attending law firm open days. During academia, my favorite highlight is meeting everyone in my syndicate/ seminar on the first day. 

What will you miss the most about University?

I feel like this is a common problem for most graduating students- the atmosphere on and off the campus is incredible and will be missed. On-campus student societies/ food stalls fill the forum bringing it to life every day. Off-campus going out with mates and attending different social gatherings will also be missed. It is quite different from anything I have experienced back home.

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?)

 If you are thinking of applying to Exeter, do it. There are so many great opportunities Exeter provides. If you are worried about living abroad, don’t be. There is something for everyone here and the university is incredibly inclusive and welcoming. You will make some amazing friends from around the world and you will always encounter new things. Attending Exeter is a unique experience that surrounds your academic studies.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

I plan to pursue the necessary qualifications needed to become a licensed lawyer in Toronto.
