What is your favourite memory of Exeter?

Everything, the whole experience! My most vivid memory is probably visiting the campus on the Open Day - I just knew that this was where I wanted to go. But I've got too many happy memories to pick one. The year abroad would be up there, but so would the years I've spent in Exeter. I'm going to miss it a lot.

Do you have any advice for future students?

Try to enjoy every aspect of it. Not just going out partying - try to enjoy studying too. If you don't enjoy the academic side of it you won't enjoy that much else, so it's all about balance. You have to get what you want out of it, make the most of it, and take the opportunities that come your way. Remember why you're here in the first place - to get a good degree - and try to enjoy that part of it.

What are your plans now that you've graduated?

I'm going abroad again to use my languages - firstly to Paris, next week. What I don't know is what I'm doing when I get there, or where I'm living; it's all still up in the air. So it will be an adventure sorting everything out, but I'm looking forward to it!
