I am sure you all have heard about the political situation between Russia and the UK. As a result a lot of Russian students as well as their parents are unsure whether it is a good idea to study in the UK or not. Here I am talking about my personal experience, sharing my thoughts on student life at the University of Exeter, explaining how studying over here can help students in real life as well as what kind of support the university can offer to the international students.
Разногласия между Россией и Англией: как это может повлиять на русских студентов за границей?
Как всем нам известно, политическая ситуация между Россией и Англией вызвала некие споры насчет того стоит ли обучаться в английских школах и вузах. Сложилось впечатление, что к русским ребятам будут относиться с презрением со стороны общества. По своему собственному опыту я могу с полной уверенностью сказать, что это абсолютно не так. (more…)
More than two years ago, I had to make one of the most important decisions in my life – choosing a university.
I was not familiar with the whole English system, how it works, what UCAS is and what factors to look at while choosing universities – I didn’t know where to start.
As I was looking at Business or Economics degrees, I found out that the University of Exeter Business School was one of the Top 10 Business schools in the UK. I also noticed that the BSc Business programme requires students to do a work placement every year while doing the degree, which I thought was a great opportunity to enhance my employability.

My week of taking over the Exeter student-run Instagram account – @ExeterUniLife.
My first day of the week. I’m really excited to look after the Instagram account and inspired to make the most out of the next 7 days.
I spent most of my day on campus – went to the Finance lecture and seminars and stayed in the library.

On the last day of winter, Falmouth and the whole country turned into a Winter Wonderland. As I am from a country (Russia) where snow is something completely normal, I was very excited to see the reaction of people who have never seen snow before. I was one of the of the people in my house who woke up early and saw the magical snow outside my window. (more…)
