Sonya Williams, BA (Hons) Youth & Community graduate.

“I am working at the place I most enjoyed in my university placements, with a team of dedicated people who are proud to help homeless and vulnerable young people. I can only convey my gratitude to my lecturers and peers to thank you for all your help. I would not have done it without you.”

Plymouth is a buzzing student city and is close to stunning coastline, secluded beaches and the inspiring Dartmoor National Park. It's the perfect place to be!
