Louise-Oceane Delion – BSc (Hons) Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology

“My first journey to Plymouth was when I came for an open day. I flew from Bordeaux to London and got a train from London Paddington to Plymouth

The University of Plymouth had so much to offer in terms of university life and seemed the best place to study Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology, something I couldn’t study back in France. There is so much to do at the University, with all the clubs, societies, and all your course mates that you will never feel alone.”
