Dear UCAS applicants,
How’s it going? I have to admit that I’ve erased most of my UCAS time from my mind. It was NOT FUN. Ultimately, it just becomes a short period of time in your memories. All you can really do is your best, submit and then drop it all out of your mind. There is a point where it’s out of your hands and that’s the point where (for most of you) this is your final year, and you need to focus on your work.
However, there is a bit of advice I’d like to give you.

I didn’t really decide to come to Cornwall – I originally applied for Streatham campus. I received an alternative offer between trips to visit family in Europe and a holiday in Scotland.
I did, luckily, find the time to come spend a night during the few days reserved for clearing students to come have a look. My brother and I grabbed a late train to the South West (by the skin of our teeth) and watched the countryside speed by with a mix of anticipation and anxiety. We landed in this strange land of rolling hills that dip into the ocean and bright yellow dairy only slightly ambivalent anymore about whether I should accept this offer or not. I know I made the right decision: Cornwall grows on you. (more…)
Hi! I’m Nicola, a second year student studying Management with Marketing from Hong Kong. This is a day in my life!
I’m up bright and early at 7:30am, as I like to take my time to make breakfast and watch the news in the Morning. Today, like most days, my breakfast of choice is Porridge because it warms me up on a cold morning. After breakfast, I’m off to attend my lecture. I actually really enjoy walking to school, I get to appreciate how beautiful the campus is. (If I’m lucky, I even get to spot a few squirrels on my way to campus!) (more…)
Hi, nice to meet you! My name is Katya and I am a 4th-year student at the University of Exeter, studying International Relations and Business management with proficiency in Italian. I know it is a long title, but I certainly enjoy my course!
Today I’ll walk you through my day at the university. It is Thursday morning now. I normally wake up quite early and try to get most of my studying done in the first half of the day (but it never happens…:). My day starts with a plate of porridge, a healthy and traditional breakfast at home.
I’ve got some reading to do for my two modules, plus preparing a report. The deadline is tomorrow and the topic is “Resistance to change at Nokia”. It’s a groupwork task in one of the Bus iness Management modules (in Business you always do little group assignments). (more…)
It’s International Students’ Day, so I thought it would be fun to show you what one of my typical days is like so you can get a sense of what to expect as an international student in Exeter.
In case you haven’t read my profile, let me dedicate a few lines to introduce myself. I’m Niki, 21, from Hungary, a second-year undergraduate at the beautiful Streatham Campus. After having changed my course 1… 2… 3 times (that’s right!), I’m now on track to get a degree title of something like ’Sustainability with French with Work Experience Abroad’. I feel that I really did find my passion in this course and I absolutely love my modules. I’m the Social Secretary of the Hungarian Society and I was part of the International Welcome Team this year, so you might have bumped into me in my bright pink T-shirt throughout Freshers’ Week. I’ve recently got the role of International Social Media Assistant at the University, which I’m incredibly excited about. (more…)
Have you ever dreamed of going to a beach after a lecture? Have you ever thought it could be possible to have a group meeting with a sea view? That is what life at the University of Exeter can be like!
Studying at the University of Exeter will give you a chance to experience a lot of new opportunities. One of the advantages of being a student on the Penryn Campus is being only several minutes away from the sea. A big variety of clubs and societies, that can only be found here, helps students to broaden their horizons as well as gives an opportunity to meet people form different parts of the world. (more…)
