The benefits of University support
Without the support from all staff at the University, from the ladies that make coffee in the SU, to my lecturers who were on hand at all hours for support, I would not be where I am today. The confidence in my own abilities in my subject area, my passion for the subject and my work ethic all grew under the supervision and guidance of my lecturers.
The support systems in place at Plymouth are amazing. Between lecturers, personal tutors, and all other staff on campus, the help I received during hardship and times when I needed assistance academically was so good, something I have not experienced in other institutions.
I used library services to request books during my dissertation, which was very helpful and efficient. This dissertation is now published and without the help from the library staff and the vast amount of resources in the University library I very much doubt that would have happened.
Careers and employability helped me with my CV at one point, and advice on studying abroad. I also had help from outside organisations such as Westlaw and Lexis who carried out skills lectures which have also enhanced my CV. Things like this are invaluable when studying for an undergraduate degree and I am very lucky to have had this experience.
