Obtaining an EdD in TESOL from the University of Exeter is a dream which has vividly come true. In fact, the whole Exeter experience is one of a kind. Starting from the carefully designed study program, to the well-ground modules, learning about and practically developing a research design, providing theoretical justification for one's research tools, selecting and applying an analytical framework, interpreting data and drawing conclusions, relating between themes, abiding by research ethics, reflecting on my own learning and teaching practice, an crowning all with defending my thesis in a viva, is undoubtedly the experience of my lifetime. I feel so blessed with such experience and I think that all future prospects are opening up for me.
