    Hi!
    Ive applied for a BEng in Civil and Coastal engineering with a view of studying for an MSc in Marine Renewable Energy; i just wanted to ask how much of a coastal aspect is added to the degree as appose to straight civil's and also, is there a possibility in getting involved in marine renewables whilst doing my undergrad?

    Finally, what kind of work does the engineers without borders society do at plymouth?

    Thanks Sam (sorry for the essay)

    Hey! I've confimed my place on the BSc Psychology degree, however at the applicant day I wasnt able to get a list of clubs and societies you offer. Is it possile to get an idea of what these will be? Thank you!!
    Hi MarthaMae19,

    Congratulations on confirming your place on the BSc Psychology course! :clap2:

    I've had a little look on the UPSU website, and here is a full list of societies.

    You can find out a bit more from some of our bloggers about their experiences with societies.

    Nate - "Getting Back into my DJ and radio student societies."
    Ian - "It's all about volleyball!"

    I would recommend the 'PsySoc' society and the 'Knit Fast, Die Warm' society
    is really popular on Facebook!

    I hope this helps you, and congratulations again!

    Dale

    Hi Sam,

    I've directed your queries onto the Science and Engineering faculty and here is the response from the Admissions Tutor for Civil Engineering and here is her response:

    "Hi Sam,

    Thanks for your query. I’m the admissions tutor and it’s great to hear you’ve applied for the BEng Civil and Coastal course. The coastal aspects are introduced to all students in Year 2, when everyone (i.e. those on straight civil and those on civil and coastal) takes a 20 credit module in hydraulic and coastal engineering (it’s 20 out of 120 credits). Then, if you choose to continue with the civil and coastal programme, you would take 80 credits of coastal-related modules in your final year of BEng (again out of 120 credits).

    The coastal modules are Coastal Engineering Analysis and Design (20 credits), Coastal Engineering Design Project (20 credits) and your Individual Project (dissertation), which would be in your chosen coastal topic (40 credits). Your project gives you the opportunity to pursue your interests, so if marine renewables is your thing, you could choose to undertake your project on an area such as wave energy.

    There is an active EWB group at Plymouth and you’ll be able to look them up on social media. They sometimes get involved in running outreach activities with local schools. In addition, you will take a Team Engineering module in the first year of your course and all the students are working on this year’s EWB Challenge, to provide design solutions to an urbanising community in Cameroon. I hope that helps!

    Best wishes, Liz."

    I hope this information is of help to you

    Don't hesitate to get back in touch if you have any further queries.

    Hi, thanks for the info! Would I meet the admissions tutor at the open day? Is there a deadline for applications?
    Hi dhr90,

    Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. There will be an academic lead from the course present at the Postgraduate Open Evening 9 March 2016, and also members of the PG Admissions team to talk through any specifics like qualifications, concerns about the strength of your application, etc.

    With regard to deadlines for applying, there isn't a specific date, but PG Admissions have advised that you submit your application by June to allow for enough time for your application to be processed and for the Admissions Tutor to consider your application.

    That said, applications submitted after June will also be considered as well, its up to you really.

    Don't hesitate to get back in touch if you have any further queries

    Hiya, try putting posters up in student frequent bars and maybe the library. Something might come up.

    The town is really nice, everything is really close so you don't have to go far to get from place to place. Accommodation is also nice, although I didn't see all the campuses. As for how modern it is... it depends what part of the campus you are in 😊
