What did you enjoy most about your degree programme?

This programme included some of the world’s most advanced computer science topics. Learning those concepts and theories from textbooks is not the key point, but independent thinking is. After reading relative material, we put forward our own problems, use the knowledge we have learned, and then try our own ways to solve these problems. These problems could be quite familiar, however, we consider them from a novel and distinct perspective. As a consequence, we are motivated well and improve ourselves in such a heuristic way.

What was the highlight of your time at Exeter?

 In August I finished my last project, which meant one-year intense study life came to the end. Though I majored in Mathematics as my undergraduate and at that moment I proved that I could also succeed in computer science. I lay on the lawn and enjoyed the clear sky, the rainbow and the sunset. I had missed them for a long time, but now they came to me and celebrated. Beauty may be late but never absent.

What will you miss the most about University?

I love the beauty and peace of campus, where I feel calm and energetic. The atmosphere here is suitable for studying and analysing.

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?)

 In Exeter, you can not only receive world-top education but also enjoy the beauty and peace of the campus. Meanwhile, Modern facilities will meet your various learning and living needs. Our staffs and students are very nice. You can always trust them whenever you need help. On our campus, you can have a very high study efficiency. In your spare time, there is also beautiful scenery in the towns nearby to relax. If you prefer a peaceful environment and a good learning atmosphere, welcome to Exeter.

What are your plans now that you have graduated?

In my master’s life, I was immersed in my master’s project. Network science deeply fascinated me. I will continue to further study and research in this field.
