Kimberley

Hi! My name is Kimberley, but most people call me Kim. I'm in my second year studying Economics and Politics. I'm from a small town in Malaysia where I would go kayaking in the rainforest and jungle trekking. I packed my bags and left to England when I was 15, which was quite daunting. So I have been through the whole international student experience and have now adapted to the British lifestyle. Since being in Exeter I've been part of a diverse community and I hope to share my experiences and journey here with you all!

With about 5 weeks of holiday or more (depending on when your exams start), how do you organise it to get the balance of both work and down time?

This is something I’m still figuring out as I go along this Easter break but I think I’ve gotten a pretty good idea of how I probably should’ve spent the earlier weeks and how to make the best out of the remaining weeks. (more…)

Why I chose Exeter for my degree (BSc Economics and Politics)

The panic was starting to set in and I decided to look up the ranking tables for Economics which was the A-level subject I really enjoyed. Universities like Warwick, Durham, St. Andrews and Exeter popped up and after all the train journeys, brochures and getting lost at Open Days – I put the University of Exeter down as my firm choice in UCAS.
