It seems like yesterday when I was looking through the internet for some information and interviews about Exeter University student life. At the time (2013), I didn’t find anything. Even today, the choices are limited.

In this blog post, I show you most of the interviews I have been doing of Exeter University‘s students. You can find more if you dig through my other blog posts such as the diversity themed one and if you go explore my YouTube Channel. But for now, please find below a few of my most random interviews.


In the videos below, I go around the Forum, on Streatham Campus, and ask a few questions to the student community. Not a lot of people accepted to be on camera (such a shame!) but the few that accepted made up for it!

These are some of my oldest videos but since I worked with the XTV Society, which is the society dedicated to film makers in Exeter, I managed to have excellent quality in both video and sound.


One of my favorite activities is to interview drunk students! They come up with the funniest jokes and the most honest opinion about their student life. The interview of Josh and Sam is by far one of my favorite videos and I wish I did more of these!

Luckily I had enough material that one night to make another video about University Halls. I did not include this in my Accommodation at Exeter University blog post because it was not 100% about accommodation.


This was one of my most researched topics back in 2013: I was craving for more information about University and I ended up watching the same 30 seconds of that same lame 2009 video that wasn’t even up to date! Luckily these interviews help you have a better understanding of your expectations.

Finally I have one more different opinion my an international fresher from Belgium who lived in an en-suite studio in Birks Grange. Disclaimer: Carla ended up dropping out from Exeter university therefore if you feel that you agree with her on every single aspects, then maybe do a bit more research about Exeter University before firming it!

I really hope these interviews help you get a better understanding of what is coming up! As you can notice, people have different perceptions and different opinions. I highly recommend you all reflect on your mindset and the kind of vibe and energy you want to bring to your university experience. Mindset is everything: you want to see the positive, it will all be positive, and vice versa.
