The benefits of studying at Plymouth
“I chose Plymouth due to the social work course having a good reputation and it’s great location – it’s so close to beaches and the moors, while still being large enough to provide everything you could want from a city. I never planned on staying in Plymouth, but enjoyed the location and the lifestyle so much that I came back to work and live here following my degree.
“Plymouth prepared me well for the challenges of my career. My final year placement gave me an insight into the work I would be carrying out and the course helped me develop the skills needed to succeed in an environment where you must be creative in finding solutions.
“Before my final placement I was sure I was going to work in Children’s Services, but after it I was convinced that Adult Services was where I wanted to work. My placement completely changed my career plans.
