University of Plymouth
Plymouth University is a vibrant and friendly community. Consistently ranked one of the top modern universities in the UK, Plymouth has a strong record of excellence, enterprise and innovation across its teaching and research activities, and is distinguished by its long-term engagement with employers.
We are particularly proud of our environmental credentials, and consistently place highly in the annual People & Planet Green League. Plymouth University recently ranked in the top five universities in the world in the UI Greenmetric Ranking of World Universities, which measures a variety of environmental factors including the embedding of sustainability within teaching.
We are committed to delivering an outstanding student experience and enjoy a reputation for excellence in teaching and learning alongside world-class research. The University has invested more than £300 million in our facilities over the past decade to enhance the student experience and to support research activities. We are the largest provider of health education in the South West and have recently formed the independent Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry (PU PSMD) which has already performed exceptionally well in the Times University Guide, entering in the top 15 Universities for both Medicine and Dentistry.
Our students benefit from funded internships, award-winning volunteering schemes, international exchange programmes, dedicated career development advice and extensive cultural, sports and leisure programmes - all of which see our students emerge as highly employable graduates with an impressive skills base. Some 12,000 of our students undertake work experience each year and our awards are informed by leading practitioners in their fields. Together with a research-informed curriculum, we embed employability skills throughout a student's journey with us.
The campus is well-established right in the heart of the city, meaning everything you could possibly need is right on your doorstep. Plymouth’s arts scene is lively, its entertainment eclectic and its history is rich. Whatever your preference - whether clubbing in the city; perusing museums and galleries; riding on the moors; exploring the internationally acclaimed Eden Project; or windsurfing from a spectacular coast - Devon and Cornwall will cater for your taste.
