“Why Plymouth”

published 25/03/2001

ProClose to the sea, not too expensive

ConsCampus could be better

Why come to Plymouth? Well why not? OK, it isn't the most famous university city in the UK but that doesn't mean it isn't worth coming to. I am currently a second year student and am based on the main campus in Plymouth City Centre. Since arriving in Plymouth 18 months ago, I have had the time of...

ConsNone.

Plymouth is a great city making it a good choice for a University. If you are thinking you need to get away from the busy life of the bigger cities Plymouth might be the place for you! But don't think that means Plymouth doesn't have the shops, nighlife and great surroundings you expect from your...

The trouble with studying a degree in Plymouth is not down to the layout, lecturers or library but down to the excellent nightlife and cheap alcaholic beverages that entice you to party every night of the week (probably why I'm repeating my first year!). Whether it is a Sunday and you want to...

“All work and no play?”

published 18/03/2006

ProEverything that you need is close by.

ConsPlymouth is a 2 hour drive away from Bristol!

Plymouth University is (obviously) situated in the city of Plymouth, which is right down in the depths of south-west England. It is a good place to come to if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the more larger cities, but not if you want to be close enough to go home. So what...

“Engineering at Plymouth”

published 11/12/2000

ProExcellent teaching

ConsDistance from main campus (good and bad)

Plymouth has been proven as the best place to study Civil Engineering in the whole of the UK. Along with the high teaching standards, the Technology / Engineering department is situated slightly away from the main campus, which gives a more kind of friendly feel to it. It's probably less than 1...

ProFriendly atmosphere and lovely places to drink

Consthe 50's design of plymouth city centre

Plymouth uni has done lots to throw off its old poly feel and has become a modern university. It has great links to the city and with the sea on the door step you can relax when the weather lets you.

I am also at Plymouth University, but am based on the Exmouth campus, which is approximately 40 miles away from the main site. At Rolle College, we have little or no contact with the main site, and as the student population here is very small, it sometimes feels like you're still at college, with...
