The University sports teams have a lot of really great facilities and and wide range of sports. Plymouth is fantastic for water sports. As Britain's Ocean city there is a strong water sports scene. Plymouth is also well known for it's Life Centre which hosts facilities from swimming pools to climbing walls and courts for ball games too. There is a wide range of swimming sports from diving to underwater hockey. Other sports have a large amount of space in order to practise. There is a big varsity between Plymouth and other universities around the south-west.×

The university experience has opened doors that would have never been available to me. Its completely changed my perspective and allowed me to grow. That said, its very intensive at times, especially when teaching time is mixed with placement and examinations. This can be deflating so you really have to call upon your determination. Make sure you select a course you really have a passion for as you will need to remind yourself of this at times .×
