University of Exeter students on Postgraduate Search say:
I've loved every second of it, so much so that I returned to Exeter to do my MA and may well return for a PhD. After struggling with study skills in first year, with the help of tutors I now am able to work at a very high level and am extremely pleased with my academic achievements.
