Emily Prestige – current student
"After an unsuccessful time with A levels, I was given the opportunity to study at the University of Plymouth with a foundation year. When I visited the University, I was greeted by the course lecturers and I immediately felt welcome.
Within two weeks I had started the course. Completing the foundation year not only allowed me to solidify my mathematical knowledge, but also allowed me to adjust to university life.
I am now in my final year of the BSc (Hons) Mathematics and Statistics and am undertaking an MSc in Medical Statistics in September. Without the support of my lecturers, I would never have found my passion and I am so grateful for that.
Over the years I have really appreciated the environment the lecturers created. It feels like a community that students are a part of, and, because of the small class sizes, the students can build working relationships with the faculty. In addition, lecturers have an open door policy which means that we always have the opportunity to ask questions.
