GO Universities in Plymouth

Universities in Plymouth The University of Plymouth [map] can trace its roots back to 1862 when it was founded as the city’s school of navigation. Since then however it has been a college and a polytechnic before gaining university status in 1992. Today it is one of the largest universities in the UK with more than 30,000 students from 100 different countries.

With an annual turnover of £110 million, six faculties, more than 300 full-time courses and 3,000 staff, this university really has influence in British academia.

But it also has the perfect mix of courses, which includes Adventure Tourism Management and Wildlife Conservation, lively nightlife, great sporting facilities and an assured friendly welcome, which attracts the thousands of students who move here every year.

Among its many achievements, the university boasts an international reputation for research, the UK’s first new medical school in 30 years, the Peninsula Medical School, and a working partnership with 17 colleges across the South West.

In addition to this, more than 4,000 students are involved in clubs and societies ranging from surfing to football, while the university’s most famous daughter is actress Pam St Clement, who plays the legendary Pat Evans in BBC1’s soap EastEnders.

The university, which has four campuses at Plymouth, Exeter, Exmouth and Seal-Haynes, is not afraid to look to the future, and a number of high value investments are currently being made to improve facilities for students. These include, a £23 million project at Portland Square on the Plymouth campus, which will house part of the Peninsula Medical School and the faculty of Health and Social Work, a new £2.1 million teaching and performance building at the Exmouth campus, and a £23.3 million improvement to student residences in Exmouth and Plymouth.
