About the University
With a mission to advance knowledge and transform Lives through education and research, Plymouth University is among the emerging global elite of modern higher education institutions.
The Times Higher Education ‘200 Young Universities’ rank us as one of the top three UK modern universities. Plymouth is distinguished by its approach to combining world-class research and teaching with a commitment to widening participation and social inclusion.
Our University campus is at the centre of a thriving, oceanfront city in one of the UK’s most beautiful regions.
Plymouth has everything you would expect from the Largest city in the South West — major high street stores, theatres, multiplex cinema, art cinemas, and a wealth of small clubs and venues.
We also enjoy easy access to the fine beaches and beautiful countryside of the South West.
