After I started to my MSc, everything proved that my original choice to study at the University of Exeter was a wise decision: the incredibly beautiful campus, the convenient and comfortable accommodation, the state of the art study facilities, the professional and friendly staff and the reputation for excellence in research. Exeter is the exactly right place for me to do the MSc and I really enjoy my study and life at Exeter.
