With a mission to advance knowledge and transform lives through education and research, the University of Plymouth is among the emerging global elite of modern higher education institutions. Ranked as one of the UK’s top 2 modern universities, we have a strong record of excellence, enterprise and innovation across our teaching and research activities and are distinguished by our long-term engagement with employers and the local community.
Our degrees are much more than just a passport to a career. They enrich and develop students with skills and lessons for life so that our graduates not only have an enviable employment record but also add real value to the economy and society at large, whether learning takes place in the classroom, laboratory, studio or through fieldwork, the workplace or community.
More than 4,500 of our students every year benefit from placements and work-based learning, and 89% of our graduates are in employment and/or further study within six months of graduating.
Helping school and college students into higher education
We provide a range of services to schools and colleges and organise a host of events to help inform and inspire potential students with the opportunities available in higher education.
We're here to make sure you and your students have got all the latest information and impartial advice to help students take the next steps on their personal higher education journey.
