My name is Thesia and I am a second-year student at the University of Exeter studying Business Economics. I am originally from Indonesia and flew 16-hours to study here at Exeter, but I can truly say that it was worth it. My favourite part of the University is the fact that it is in Exeter! It is the perfect location for university life that offers everything you need. In the past year, I've learned to adapt and live on my own, so I hope sharing my experiences on this blog can help some of you international students who are thinking of studying here.

Why I chose BSc Business Economics at Exeter

A year ago I endured the long process of choosing and applying to universities, which you may be experiencing right now. I found it very overwhelming as there are countless universities that I could consider. But, in the end there could only be one that was perfect for me. What I found very helpful was to consider all possible aspects about the universities I’d applied for – ranging from the reputation of the University to available food! The result was me deciding to take BSc Business Economics at the University of Exeter. I could list many reasons for why I chose Exeter, but here are four primary reasons why:

Travelling to Mainland Europe from Exeter

Before I decided to study at Exeter, I wondered how difficult it would be to travel from Exeter. I worried that I might not be able to take advantage of living so close to Mainland Europe because of how far I thought I was going to be. But I was completely wrong, traveling to Mainland Europe from Exeter is just as easy as traveling from London. So if you are an international student worried about how Exeter may be “in the middle of nowhere”, I’m about to prove you wrong!

A day trip to Teignmouth

What if I told you that you are only 40 minutes away from this beautiful view?

Yes, go ahead, go buy your £5 return tickets to Teignmouth now! Before I moved to Exeter, I never expected to be so close to so many amazing hidden gems in the UK. Teignmouth is a small (but stunning) coastal town in Devon with long sandy beaches and great local food. It’s the perfect weekend getaway for those who need a break from deadlines.
