Meet our undergraduate students
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."
"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."
"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."
"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 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."
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."
"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!"
BSc Economics and Politics
"I’m studying a combination of Economics and Politics in my degree, and what I like most about my course is that it explores the interplay between the two.
I’ve always been someone who has lots of ideas and isn’t worried about putting them forward. What’s been fantastic is that the Business School has been very receptive to that."
BA Management with Marketing with European Study
"Before coming to the University of Exeter, I visited several UK universities, but as soon as I arrived in Exeter, I fell in love with the university. The green campus, the Forum, sports facilities and student accommodation were all incredible compared to other universities I visited. On top of that, it was well ranked in the UK."
BSc Accounting and Finance with Proficiency in Spanish
"I chose Exeter because it offered the exact course I wanted to do and I was passionate about all of the compulsory modules. Accounting and Finance has just the right mix of modules from both areas. Apart from academic-related reasons, I chose Exeter because of its campus – it’s a beautiful green campus in a smaller city."
BA Business and Management with Industrial Experience
"I have always been entrepreneurial and I’ve always had a business career in mind so I knew that I wanted to study Business.
A degree in Business and Management offers a great scope for application in a wide range of careers, including accounting, finance, economics, management, marketing and more."
BSc Business Economics
"What’s great about the Business School is that it offers a wide variety of courses, which are mostly very flexible, whereas at the other top 10 universities I looked at, the course structures were generally quite rigid.
At Exeter, I have been able to tailor my course to fit my needs and this is something which has motivated me to work at my best throughout my course."
BA Management with Marketing with Industrial Experience
"I chose to study at the University of Exeter Business School because the opportunities to enhance employability and career prospects set Exeter apart from other universities.
When I attended an Offer-Holder Visit Day, I was particularly impressed by the superb facilities, the warm atmosphere and the passion of the lecturers and current students."
BSc in Economics
"After studying at an international school in India, I wanted to come to the UK to learn more about business.
After I graduate, my plan is to pursue a Masters in Economics before returning to India to join my family’s manufacturing business and take it forward."
INTO Business Foundation, BSc Economics and Finance
"I had always wanted to go abroad and change my environment, so after I graduated from high school in China, I began looking around at universities overseas.
As Exeter is ranked as one of the top ten universities in the UK, and has high student satisfaction rates, it seemed like a good place for me to improve my English and to learn more about economics and finance."
BSc Accounting and Finance with Industrial Experience
"I started off on the Foundation programme INTO Exeter, as I had not completed A Levels in the UK.
It offered all the fundamental courses leading to my subject degree, and also gave me the opportunity to gain useful skills such as how to write academic essays and how to make use of the University’s facilities. I also had time to get to know what life is like here."
