Making the leap
I wanted to study for a degree that would allow me to travel and have flexibility in my academic choices. The University of Plymouth proved to be one of the best choices in that regard as the International Business degree gave me the choice to study or to work for a whole year anywhere in the world!
My first journey to Plymouth was unique as this was the first time I had travelled so far out of London. Prior to starting my studies, I had travelled around a considerable amount, however, arriving in Plymouth was a new experience altogether because it felt strangely familiar and welcoming.
The fear I initially experienced was evanescent because as soon as I reached my accommodation I was greeted with smiling, friendly faces and they were all eager to help me get settled in. I started chatting with my future flatmates within minutes of entering the flat.
