          • Testimony
            1994-1997, MA Business Management

            It is quite a few years ago now, I want to say that the tutors were brilliant. At the time public and not for profit sectors were only just starting to engage in formal management qualifications the tutors really worked hard to make the course relevant to my needs and obtain support for my dissertation.

          • Testimony
            1999-2003, Computing and Informatics

            This is a great course, I learned a lot about all areas of computing and was able to get into a good job after graduation. During my time at Plymouth university I had a rich social experience and found the university to be friendly and very well positioned in the city for great access to everything you need. As it is now expanding with more courses and better facilities I wouldn't hesitate to recommend university of Plymouth to anyone who wants to get a degree. Also, the area is very affordable with cheap housing and cost of living that will hopefully mean less debt at the end of the degree.
