University of Portsmouth - A university to help you shine
The University of Portsmouth gives students the support they need to go beyond what they think is possible. We’re committed to helping every student, whatever their background, achieve their absolute best. Students can choose from 100s of courses in the humanities, business and law, creative and cultural industries, technology, science and health. Whether graduating career-ready or taking advantage of discounts for further study, it’s our ambition to help them go further.
Our work with schools and colleges
Best begins when we build an exciting future for young people. Of personal growth and discovery. One where they put nothing less than their best foot forward. Every time.
If you work with KS2-KS5 students, we’ll help you show them the opportunities that higher education has to offer. Whether they need a hand with big decisions after school or college, or you want to explore the latest sector updates, you can count on us. Virtually or in-person, at your campus or ours – you’re in control.
The University of Portsmouth is a new breed of university. We’re committed to helping every student, whatever their background, achieve their absolute best. Young and ambitious, we are respected for:
- the quality of our teaching, learning and student outcomes
- the all-round excellent student experience we offer
- the extensive support we provide, from wellbeing to academic skills
- our commitment to boosting student employability
Tackling the climate emergency is a priority for us – and not just through research. We have committed to becoming climate positive by 2030. This means going beyond net zero by saving more carbon than we emit. It’s one of the most ambitious targets of any UK university.
We’re proud of our 5-star rating for excellence in the QS World University Rankings 2022 and our global top 150 ranking in the Times Higher Education Young Universities 2021. We’re even prouder of our graduates’ success. With the support of our highly rated Careers and Employability Service (voted Top 20 in the UK on Student Crowd, 2021), 9 out of 10 of our students are in work or further study 15 months after graduation (HESA Graduate Outcomes, 2018/19).
