I’m ready to be inspired by my course
I live in Plymouth – this is my local university. I felt connected to the University even before I received my unconditional offer. Coming to the campus for maths masterclasses and work experience while still at school gave me an indication of what the teaching was like and where things were. In many ways, these were my first stepping-stones towards becoming a student here.
I have always had a real passion for numbers and having an answer for everything – mathematics is the subject I have found the most fulfilling.
Even though Plymouth was a strong option from the outset, I did look around at courses at other institutions. The most important aspect when looking at universities was the course content and the range of opportunities available.
I identified early that economics would build upon my love of mathematics and that it was important for me to find a course that would enable me to channel my interest in the humanities, having studied history and geography at A level.
After considering multiple options, Plymouth remained the best choice for me due to the quality of the BSc (Hons) Economics course content as well as the course’s flexible structure of optional modules, which will allow me to carve a personal pathway that will guide me towards graduation and beyond.
I have not decided my module specialisms or even a particular future job role yet – I am sure that as I progress through the course, a spark will ignite and point me towards a more specialised career pathway. Whether a particular module, a placement experience (another big pull for me to come here) or advice from tutors, I am ready to be inspired by my course.
