Our students from India talk about what it's like to study in Plymouth...

Abhishek - MA Human Resource Management

I’ve had a very productive year, despite the lockdown and very few face-to-face classes. I had very supportive lecturers who gave very detailed and helpful feedback on my work. I found the library staff very helpful.

Abhishek felt supported by his lecturers, even throughout the COVID-19 lockdowns.

Ameensha - MSc Advanced Engineering Design

The last year was very challenging for me due to the pandemic. However, I got great support from the University providing remote learning access and good student-teacher communication.

Despite studying for his masters during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ameensha felt supported by the University.
