I most enjoy... The fact that I can still stay interested in what I’m learning about, unlike many friends I know in other disciplines. I think that’s down to the close relationships between lecturers and students. I am a nerd and love archaeology but I also like sport and within half an hour can be playing tennis or netball or go to the gym or even go for a hike. Living in Exeter is great because you are always so close to everything. Find out about Amy's typical week.
BSc Archaeology with Forensic Science
The Archaeology department is full of really enthusiastic students and staff, making it so easy to get caught up in the passion for the subject. I’m really enjoying the ability to study cultures and periods I’ve never looked at before, and also to attend guest seminars to further broaden my interests into such a vast topic as the human past. Doing Forensic Science alongside the Archaeology has meant I can also do some practical lab work in first year and look at different skill sets which is really enjoyable for me.
