Student Profile(s)


I ultimately decided to go to Exeter after meeting the faculty here who genuinely care about their students and how we use our time here to prepare for what comes after grad school. That, combined with Exeter’s amazing campus and student societies have only served to reinforce my belief that my decision to go to Exeter was the right one. Exeter also has a great employability program that focusses on preparing students for the job market. Whatever stage you are at in the process, the career consultants in the career zone are always sure to be able to help point you to the resources you need or provide career counselling if you are stuck.

The Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Exeter has shown me, through lecture, debate, and discussion, that my career lies in engaging with people about issues I care about. Investing in renewable energies, revitalizing local government, harnessing the power of technology to decrease rather than widen the gap between developing countries and their developed counterparts will be essential to developing a world worthy of the ideas and lessons we have inherited from the past. My experience pursuing my MA in International Relations at Exeter has shown me that my career and future lies in engaging with these questions and involving as many people as possible in the conversation that these questions generate.
