I chose Plymouth because it had such a great atmosphere when I visited the open day. It was friendly, informative and exciting. I definitely recommend visiting.

After feeling anxious about my future plans at some other universities, it was a revelation to come to Plymouth. The warmth and friendliness of all the staff and students really made the university stand out. It felt like a family.
