Practical, research-based teaching helped me to grow and inspire change

"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."
MSc Mechanical Engineering Design allowed Ram Kushawaha to engage deeply with his interests and set him on a path to a PhD.

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.

Aaditya – MSc Civil Engineering

"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."
Despite studying for his masters during the COVID-19 pandemic, Aaditya felt supported by the University and his lecturers.
