What our students say
Current students and alumni share their experiences of studying Management at University of Exeter Business School.
Alex - BSc Business
I thoroughly enjoyed the BSc Business course, not only did we have fantastic lecturers who were so attentive to individual needs, but I genuinely feel I have developed skills that will really set me apart moving forward. The size, location and content of the degree really worked for me on a personal level, and I think it much better reflects a workplace team environment, particularly when it came to group work at the university. I also feel that the structure of the modules, and the variety of content was fantastic. I have friends who studied business elsewhere and they didn’t get close to the variety of modules we enjoyed.
Alizee - BSc Business
What I enjoyed most about the BSc Business degree was the first year boot camp. It was really important for bonding, and it was lots of fun. The other two boot camps were also great fun activities to do all together as a cohort – but that first one was my favourite.
Carla - BSc Business with International study
Our taught sessions are a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials which is a really nice mix as it teaches key ideas in a varied way. The way we are assessed is also very diverse and includes presentations, essays, reports and work experience which is helping to develop my skillset in a variety of areas. My favourite module at the moment is ‘Business Practise and Analysis’, the content is relevant to the real world and it has a focus on employability and work experience which will be useful for our future careers. BSc Business students have a dedicated careers adviser specifically for our course and I’ve had 1:1 appointments with the career zone which has been invaluable.
My favourite thing about the Cornwall campus is the location, we are never far from beaches and beautiful scenery. I was also drawn here because whilst it is a good-sized campus it is more intimate than most universities and the support services are fantastic. I am currently living in Glasney Student Village, only a 2 minute walk from the Business School. Staying in halls has definitely helped me settle in, all your flatmates are in the same boat so this made the move far less daunting as you always see some friendly faces around campus. The range of societies on offer at the Cornwall campus is huge, I am part of the Expedition, Enactus and Business Societies. All Societies offer taster sessions during Freshers’ Week which are really useful as they’re free and give you an idea of the activities and a chance to meet new friends.
Emily - BSc Business
My advice for others who are considering studying in Penryn would be to make the most of the opportunities that are presented to you, including enjoying the beautiful landscape that Cornwall has to offer. The campus is shared with Falmouth University which provides such a great environment to socialise with students from a range of courses.”
“Penryn Campus offered me everything I wanted from my time at university. It’s a great location, a great course and I made the most amazing friends. The size of the course made sure that the learning was really tailored to our needs and with less students, we were able to spend more time one-on-one with our careers advisor. I have managed to graduate with a First Class Honours degree and have secured a position as an HR analyst at a top American Bank, all thanks to the support at the Penryn Campus.
Isaac - BSc Business
I really enjoyed how intimate the course was, in the sense we got so much time to engage with our lecturers and peers – and there was freedom to really explore your areas of interest.
The best highlights for me though, were the location, the people and the programme’s focus on sustainability. I couldn’t choose just one! You’re in an amazing space and part of an internationally diverse community. Contribute to it, learn from it and grow with it.
Olly - BSc Business
It’s been three of the best years of my life studying at the University of Exeter in Cornwall and I am more than happy to announce that I will be graduating with a high 1:1 in BSc Business.
I can’t thank my friends and lecturers enough and am looking forward to exploring the next chapter in my life!
Matthew - BSc Business with Industrial Experience
One of my favourite parts about being on placement is the travel opportunities. Within the first two months I had visited Warsaw and Amsterdam to attend trade shows, allowing me to meet key customers and members of the team based around Europe. The team at Sony have been very supportive and always get me involved in any opportunities that arise, whether it be putting me on training courses or allowing me to take on extra responsibilities. I have really enjoyed my year in industry, not only have I developed my workplace skills, but I have made some great friends. I would highly recommend taking a year in industry.
