Awards and Achievements

The city of Exeter is a really great area for student living. It is safe and friendly, and has lots of good restaurants and pubs. My favourite place is the Quay, as I enjoy jogging there. The Career Zone was particularly useful when I applied for my Industrial Placement. The consultants helped me with my CV, interview practice and tips for group discussion. The University is really diverse and international, and I have made friends with lots of people from different backgrounds.
