When choosing a university, there were only a selected number of institutions that offered the Maritime Business and Logistics degree, as the shipping industry is not a very common subject area.I was looking for a campus close to the sea, with lots of international students and of course with an excellent nightlife. After being searching, travelling and meeting people across lots of universities, I decided that Plymouth would be the perfect place in order to meet my personal and academic requirements.

Why did you choose Plymouth University to do your degree course?

I visited Plymouth University on an Open Day, where I had the chance to speak to lots of the current students. They told me about how supportive all the staff were and the great opportunities they had been offered. I liked the University campus and thought that the library being open 24/7 was a brilliant idea, I much prefer working late at night so this really worked for me. Also, the nightlife sounded like a lot of fun! Plymouth's economics course appeared to be well rounded and included lots of the things that interest me, such as the economics in action module.
