Bartolome Bauza – BSc (Hons) Maritime Business and Logistics graduate

Since graduating, Bartolome Bauza has been employed by the Danish shipping company DFDS on a two year trainee programme.

"Plymouth was a very comfortable and student-friendly university that gave me every opportunity to develop. Although I still have many new skills and experiences to learn, Plymouth set the foundation for this development. It was always very useful to know that you had your lecturers to ask for advice or some kind of support. They were always very approachable and supportive."
