I am from Wales and did some scouring before I chose which university to go to. Arts University Plymouth’s facilities and opportunities looked amazing and after having my interview and talking to Course Leader Cathryn Bishop it confirmed my decision as the correct one. I have had the most amazing three years at Arts University Plymouth and wouldn’t change anything about it. The staff are so supportive.
