Study and exchange opportunities for international students
"All of the University of Plymouth Sociology professors went above and beyond to make the international sociology pupils feel welcome and academically stimulated. We were immediately invited to participate in Sociology socials, activities and projects. This is something we were eager to do, as the company provided by the faculty and our peers was supportive and refreshing.”
Julia Kovacs, international exchange student, USA
"To me, it felt like the professors really engage with the students and help them to be as successful as possible with their studies. Especially, I learned a lot in the Gender and Society module through open discussions and a lot of reading material from which the students could choose.”
