One of a new kind of modern university that operates globally but is proudly rooted within its local community. We focus upon what we do best and are driven by what matters most – advancing knowledge and transforming lives through education and research.
It’s a commitment that we try to uphold in all that we do. Our research-informed curriculum is delivered by some of the most respected teachers in the Higher Education academy, and we work in partnership with our students, entrusting in them a shared ownership of our academic endeavour and shared authorship of our student experience. We have embedded employability into our courses and across a range of extra- and co-curricular programmes so that we can nurture entrepreneurial instincts and encourage the development of enterprising skills and behaviours.
Located on the border of Devon and Cornwall, in a city boasting a stunning natural splendour and a proud maritime tradition, Plymouth University is doing things a little differently.
