  • Plymouth University offers a diverse range of innovative course programmes, both vocational and academic, which provide our graduates with a world class standard of skills.
  • There are currently more than 30,000 students studying at Plymouth University and its partner colleges spread across the whole of the South West. With the help of these colleges, we are able to widen participation and provide employers with the region’s most talented graduates.
  • The University has an excellent track record of providing outstanding levels in its teaching and enterprise activities, scoring very well across all disciplines, and gaining top 20 ratings for subjects including architecture, education and earth and marine sciences.
  • The University is a forward thinking institution, providing a high level of investment and development in new facilities, which led us to emerge as the top modern University in the UK in the 2007 Guardian league tables, and has led to a further £33 million in funding over the next five years.
  • The RAE 2008 saw Plymouth named as a top 50 research University and the 'most improved' with 80% of its research judged as being of international repute, meaning both our undergraduate and postgraduate students can be proud to be taught by, and work alongside world-class experts.
