When I started my final year of college, I had aspirations of going to university to study languages, with the ultimate goal of becoming a translator. All this changed when I began my Geology AS level on a friend’s recommendation. Within the first few weeks I developed a love for learning about how the Earth was made and what processes went into shaping the world we live in.
As such, when it came to applying for university I had a dilemma; whether to apply for languages or take the risk and apply for geology. The decision was easier than I thought when I visited the Earth Sciences department at Plymouth. The staff were friendly and helpful, the department well equipped and most importantly I felt comfortable and at home.
