Nazik, BSc Accounting and Finance with Proficiency in Spanish

ACCOUNTING

Accounting and Finance has a great mix of modules from both areas, and the transition between years is very smooth. The modules I did in my first year gave me the skills to help me perform well in my final year. All my lecturers have been extremely helpful when I needed support, and I’ve found the campus is ideal for my studies as it has everything you need – lecture rooms, cafes, shops, gym and the library.

I chose Exeter due to the highly ranked Economics discipline, and Business Economics because of the flexibility it offers. You study mostly compulsory modules in the first year, however in your third year you are able to pick all your modules including some outside the Business School. This is great because you can tailor your degree to suit your interests; I chose to study Japanese for beginners which I found really engaging. Adeline, BSc Business Economics

MANAGEMENT

I had my heart set on Exeter after visiting on an open day during my sixth form. There was an introductory lecture from David Boughey which I still remember for its high energy. I also appreciated the fact that Exeter is a campus uni where the firstyear accommodation is connected making it feel part of the university. My course has been great in terms of choosing modules to suit me, and now that I’ve received a graduate job offer from my placement employer, I can focus on finishing my degree.

A DAY IN THE LIFE

Every day at university is different, but here’s a typical day from Olya, a third-year BSc Business student studying on the Penryn Campus.

It took 30–40 mins to get ready and have breakfast, and 20 mins to get to uni. It’s so convenient that the bus stop is only three mins away from my house.

I love sports and being active. In my first year I was part ofC the Volleyball society. I try to join a new gym each year so I had a look at the different options nearby and some of them look amazing.

I had a quick catch-up with my coursemates and lecturers at a campus coffee shop, Koofi. Went to my first lecture of the day, where our employability advisor told us what this module, Practice-Based Consultancy project, will include. This year I have to consult a business of my choice, so at the lecture I learnt how to approach a business and the benefits and disadvantages of the consultancy industry. Had an hour-long break after my first lecture. Went to the Stannary, the campus canteen, to have lunch with friends. Arrived at my Small Business Management lecture. Had a chance to talk about my business idea with the other students. As I am a part of the Entrepreneurs Society committee, I had a chat with the committee after class. It was amazing to plan our future events – I hope we will do a great job! Olya, 3rd year BSc Business student (Penryn Campus)

Started working on my presentation for the Small Business Management tutorial. Had to talk about myself, my plans and about my business idea.  Once I finished my homework, I had dinner with my flatmates. We cooked together and talked about what everyone has been up to. Went to help my friend to unpack as he just moved into a new house. After, we just spent some time on their balcony, which has an amazing view. In the evening, had a chance to spend more time with my flatmates. Everyone was at home and we were happy to be back together.

Exeter is a lovely place to live. It is safe and friendly, and has loads of good restaurants and pubs. My favourite place in Exeter is the Quayside by the river – I enjoy jogging there and there are loads of places to eat. Exeter is also close to several beaches and parks if you fancy a day out.

MODULES WITH OTHER COLLEGES

‘With Proficiency in (language)’ To have this added to your degree title, you need to successfully complete a minimum of 60 credits in one language from the University of Exeter Foreign Language Centre (FLC). Your degree must therefore offer you at least 60 credits of optional modules. Find out more at exeter.ac.uk/flc/undergraduate/languages

Many of the Business School undergraduate programmes offer the opportunity to undertake modules from another department at the University, for example Politics or Geography. This can benefit you academically and enhance your employability. Find out more at exeter.ac.uk/students/ administration/rulesandregulations/ug-pgt/ modulechoice

Foreign Language Evening Classes If your degree does not offer 60 credits of optional modules, or you prefer to use those available credits in another way (to achieve ‘with Proficiency in Entrepreneurship’ for example), you can still make the most of foreign language evening classes at the FLC. Find out more at exeter.ac.uk/flc/evening/ languages

WORK EXPERIENCE OPTIONS 12 MONTH PLACEMENTS – WITH INDUSTRIAL EXPERIENCE

BUSINESS INTERNSHIPS AND PLACEMENTS MODULE

If you choose not to do the four year ‘with Industrial Experience’ programme, you can still secure valuable paid work experience with top graduate employers. Competition for these internships can be intense, so our Careers Team have designed the Business Internships and Placements module to provide guidance through seminars, online resources and one-to-one support.

Salaries vary depending on employer, but typically range from £19,000 to £23,000, although can extend from £15,000 up to £52,000. We support you every step of the way, from finding and applying for a placement through to making the most of your work experience.

HOW TO APPLY With Industrial Experience (WIE) is available on all our undergraduate programmes. You can apply through UCAS or ask to transfer onto WIE in the first term of your first year. Find out more about how to apply to all work experience options online.

STUDY ABROAD OPTIONS Your experience at the University of Exeter Business School can reach far beyond South West England and help set you apart in the graduate job market. All Business School students have the opportunity to study abroad by taking the ‘with Year Abroad’ pathway. We currently have over 60 partner universities in 26 different countries, so choosing to study abroad really does open up a world of opportunities. It is now more important than ever to demonstrate a global outlook to graduate employers. A report by Universities UK International shows that graduates who were mobile during their degree were more likely to be in a graduate level job and earn more than their non-mobile peers.

Studying abroad is a unique experience. You can immerse yourself in a new culture and a different university life. It is a great opportunity to meet new people and improve existing language skills or pick up new ones. It also allows you to broaden your perspectives, visit new places and experience new challenges all of which will be beneficial to you in the future. Tashana, BA Management with Marketing with European Study and Proficiency in Spanish

‘With Year Abroad’ is open to all Business School students regardless of language abilities. The majority of our partner universities offer a full range of modules taught in English, but you may like to study a foreign language at the University of Exeter’s Foreign Language Centre (FLC) to help you make the most of your time abroad.

Since graduating from the University of Exeter Business School, I have gone on to start my own company, KOMPAS. We’ve been able to raise significant funding to grow, partner with leading financial institutions and develop a company recognised as one of the world’s leading artificial intelligence start-ups. The best thing about studying at the Business School was being given the opportunity to try new things and meet people from all over the world. It developed my cultural understanding and gave me ideas when starting a business. Tom, BSc Economics and Politics with European Study 2016. (Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, KOMPAS)
