More about the University of Plymouth

Plymouth has been the starting point for many great voyages of discovery. But few of these are better known, or have provided such a lasting international legacy, as the sailing of the Mayflower almost 400 years ago. Follow in the footsteps of the Pilgrim Fathers and start your own voyage of discovery as we lead up to the celebrations in 2020 when there will be city-wide events, ambitious projects and pioneering initiatives to enhance your experience.  

The University of Plymouth is at the centre of a vibrant coastal city, only a short drive from the local beaches and Dartmoor National Park. From the breath-taking coastal views of Plymouth seafront to the buzzing atmosphere of the Barbican there is always something to see and do here. We have a thriving student community with more than 180 sports clubs and societies, and our Students Union.  

Two-thirds of our research is recognised as being 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent' in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, and our degrees have career employability at their core. Over 4,500 University of Plymouth students benefit from placements and work-based learning every year. 

We have a dedicated International Student Advice (ISA) team who provide specialist services and guidance for international students studying at the University of Plymouth. From the day you accept an offer at Plymouth, right through to graduation, ISA offer help and advice so you can get the most out of your studies, and your time in the UK.
