Supportive learning environment
English and creative writing at Plymouth prides itself on its friendly and supportive learning environment. Throughout your time here you will have a personal tutor who will support you individually, and every tutor operates an open door policy, meaning you can see them outside seminars, workshops and lectures, to talk through your work one to one. At Plymouth you are assessed entirely through coursework, with no exams, and you receive free core module set texts for all three years.
“Throughout all three years at the University of Plymouth I have never experienced a lecturer who wouldn't go above and beyond for us.” Hannah Daniels, BA (Hons) English, 2013-16.
“The tutors at Plymouth are amazing, I've emailed them countless times with probably meaningless questions or queries regarding essays, and they've always responded helping as much as they possibly can. They reply quickly and are keen to help out, no matter how insignificant my questions are.” Megan Pollard, BA (Hons) English, 2013-16.
“Studying English at Plymouth turned out to be three of the most fulfilling years of my life so far. The most important thing for me was the outstanding support that the English team provided. I always felt like everyone was there on my side, ready to provide support, advice or figure a way round a problem because they all genuinely wanted me to do well. So thank you English at Plymouth for helping me achieve something that I often wasn’t sure would be possible.” Rachel Nafzger, BA (Hons) English and Creative Writing, 2009-12.
