Comments from the recent course attendees:

‘I took the Delve Deeper distance learning course in 2010 and I just wanted to say a big thank you and to let you know that I have just finished by undergrad degree in marine biology at Plymouth University, achieving a first! I've loved the whole journey so far and am now looking at continuing my research career and applying for PhD's - from little acorns grow! A huge thanks to all who made Delve Deeper so great and inspired me to go on and do an Access course then full degree - I did it!’

‘Inspirational teachers. Their commitment is obvious from the start.’

‘I was amazed at the level of access that we got to top professors in their fields, and the quality of the field experience.’

‘It’s so enjoyable, you don’t realise you are actually learning at the same time.’

‘Great course, great tutors, great mix of activities, great people. Would recommend the course to anybody with an interest in marine biology’
