What our students say
'Skills picked up on fieldwork courses are valuable in future careers and the parts of the course that were most useful to me in my current job were transferable skills, the use of various computer packages and all the statistics modules. But as much as anything, it's the staff that inspire the students; and Plymouth has plenty of good staff.'
