The teaching method at the University of Plymouth was completely different to what I was used to, as it was more practical and research-based than theoretical.
Coming from Nepal, the main difference I found when I arrived in Plymouth was the weather. Apart from that, Plymouth is a good place to live as a university student! It has lots of international restaurants which is great if you are missing food from your country. I've spent a lot of time touring the region and getting to know my neighbourhood.
The University have made remote lab access and library access possible. The online exams and coursework were of excellent quality. I am grateful to the University for maintaining the same quality of education during the pandemic.
