Unique experiences in Britain's Ocean City: your student life in Plymouth

Plymouth might just surprise you...

Coming from Croydon in South London, getting from point A to point B can be a long trek. So, I’m used to having to make an effort to tie down plans to go places and meet up with friends. London can feel isolated. I can’t say the same about Plymouth. There is such a great community feel. I love the campus being so central to the city. You can do so much without having to stray too far from its heart. Getting anywhere is an absolute dream and I’ve been able to explore a fair bit in my time here.
