Hi there!

I'm thinking about applying through clearing for a foundation year in ocean sciences this year in Plymouth. No solid plans yet but it's definitely looking like the best option for me

Thank you!! I think I should be fine applying through clearing. It's just getting accommodation which might be a bit tight

There's lots of people in Halls with posters in windows supporting NHS, or post-it note smiley faces, but I've not seen any "SOS" messages yet so don't worry, I don't think there's any students trapped in their rooms here

Hi!

Which specific course are you applying for?

You usually need biology if you're planning to take a marine biology degree, but with physics and maths you'll be able to do oceanography or another ocean science degree! Alternatively if you're set on marine bio, you could always do a foundation year!

It might be worth getting in touch with the admissions tutors at Plymouth, and other universities offering the same courses to discuss your options!

Have you any other questions?
