Plymouth, Britain’s Ocean City, is located on the coast in the beautiful South West of England, between the

sea, Cornwall and Dartmoor. Plymouth enjoys a combination of rural charm and modern city living.

The University is set in the heart of the city with shops, facilities and attractions on its doorstep. Plymouth is

a pedestrian friendly city and students also benefit from close proximity to the scenic Barbican harbour and the

breath taking Hoe, which looks out over the sea and has views to neighbouring Cornwall. The main campus is

within easy walking distance of the city centre, main shopping area, transports hubs and accommodation.

The location also plays a part in studies here: courses relating to marine life and the oceans are particularly

well regarded.

Plymouth has a strong record of excellence, enterprise and innovation across its teaching and research

activities. Distinguished by its long-term engagement with business and the community, the University

enjoys outstanding links with employers and plays a key role in civic and regional leadership.

It is the only university in the world to have been awarded the Social Enterprise Mark in recognition of its

work in support of the sector. Enterprising and practical, over two thirds of research were rated ‘world leading’

or of ‘international quality’ in the most recent Research Excellence Framework, Plymouth University also

ensures students leave with real skills and work experience; over 4500 students a year benefit from work-based

placements. It enjoys a high rate of graduate employment and has recently invested more than £150 million in its

estate and facilities to enhance the student experience and support world-class research.

Plymouth has embedded sustainability across its operations, and is the overall best performing university in the

People & Planet Green League. It is the first modern university to found a medical and dental school -

the Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry - and is the leading provider of

Higher Education in Cornwall.
