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

I didn’t join any clubs at school.

In the process of learning, I think the most enjoyable thing is that I can discuss with many classmates, exchange questions about education together, and learn a lot of experience and opinions about education.

What did you enjoy most about studying here?

During the study in Exeter, what I enjoyed most was that the school environment was very good. The teachers were very kind and excellent, and they were very willing to answer the questions raised by the students. I really appreciate the help of the teachers, especially Stentiford Lauren and George Koutsouris.

Exeter’s learning environment and overall learning atmosphere attracted me.

What skills and experiences have been most useful for your career?

I think the discussions and presentations in the course are very valuable to me.

I suggest that students communicate fully with their classmates and teachers and have practical experience.

What are your plans for the future?

In the future, I may engage in a career related to education, but I may also choose other industries. My current plan is to learn more things to improve myself.
