Thomas Attree, Senior Cloud Engineer at Thomson Reuters
"I would definitely recommend undertaking a course at Plymouth University. I would do it again if I could. The wealth of knowledge is there to be tapped, and many of the lecturers are leaders in their field. The social opportunities and the study/life balance I think was spot on."
“My degree allowed me to get an internship which landed me the job I am in now. I worked throughout my final year for Cisco and went straight into a full time job the day after I finished my last exam.”
Luke Robison, IT Strategy and Architecture Consultant at IBM
“My degree helped me get a great job with IBM. My role is to work directly with clients to understand their problems and develop recommendations and solutions to solve them. I’ve worked with numerous global companies from government agencies to investment banks. Every day I use the skills I developed during my degree, as well as the knowledge I built up."
“As part of my course I did a one-year placement position with Accenture as a change analyst. During this time, I rose to the position of change manager, and subsequently a service integration manager. I was then guaranteed a position upon completion of my degree."
Rhys Froggatt, Senior ICT Support Technician at Chipping Campden School
"I work for my old school, who headhunted me after completing my work placement with them. This was only made possible by the information, expertise and experience I gained from studying at Plymouth University."
Graham Dunne, Systems Analyst at Landmark Information Group
"After graduation I interviewed for several roles, successfully securing an offer for all of them! I was lucky enough to spot a vacancy as a Systems Administrator for Goss Interactive - a web technologies company, based in Plymouth. After two successful and very happy years with them, I made the move to join Landmark Information Group as a Second Line Systems Analyst, based at their Exeter offices."
