Very professional culture but tough assignments.
Tips: Sufficient knowledge of respective courses before joining because assignments are very tough here and along with the lectures, it is mostly self-studies. There is not much time for assignments, which need to complete in a short period of time. Therefore, sufficient knowledge should be there before coming here.
Likes (Value for money): Excellent student life here. Good educational environment, a beautiful city, and nice and correlative local residents. Assignments are very tough but you can gain knowledge as well, and you will get exposure to programming, and good exposure to research.
Dislikes (Internships): It's tough to get internships here because the interview structure is different than in India. Along with technical skills, they also test many situational-based games to check your presence of mind and adaptivity. Most interviews are online. The first round of technical tests is always a coding test.

Love the university experience so far!
Tips: Know your modules and prepare accordingly. The assignments are essay based which can be new to some of us, so look onto them. Also, do not slack off after getting here, search for jobs as soon as possible as they get filled. I have loved the university experience here.
Likes (Quality of faculty): The faculty here understands that we are from a different academic models and help us through our assignments and they are very helpful. You can mail them anytime and fix an appointment to talk and get your doubts cleared, and discuss your ideas as well. I have found this very helpful and supportive.
Dislikes (Permanent Immigration): I have no idea about immigration or settlement here but as far as I know, the harder you try and work to get a job after your course, you will have good chances. It totally depends on you and your hard work. So start applying for graduate programmes and internships from the beginning.

Best decision to choose Exeter!
Tips: The city is small and not big like London or Manchester, so if you like big cities then you might find it boring but other than that, I think everything is nice. The weather here is very moody, and it rains mostly as it is in the south near the coast, so for people who don’t like rain it can be hard to adjust.
Likes (Student Life): The student life is amazing here, the city is very safe and has good places to buy foods or eat out. The city is very green and peaceful. There are number of societies to join in the university and the campus is huge and has everything necessary for the students.
Dislikes (Part time work): The faculty is amazing, their classes are very interactive and interesting. The academic material provided is also adept and engaging to read. The courses are regularly updated and it’s mapped to equip students to cultivate transferable skills that the employer would want students to have after the graduation.
