Welcome to Plymouth University

Welcome to Plymouth University, and thank you for your interest in our academic community. We are a university that takes pride in its international reputation and standing, and the warm welcome that it offers all of its students, no matter where they are from in the world. 

We are very proud of our partnership with Plymouth University International College (PUIC), which provides eligible students with a pathway into our vibrant academic community. The team's expert support and tailored programmes help international students make the transition to life here in the beautiful South West of England, and to academic study at one of the top 350 universities in the world.

We are a university defined by our world-leading research in many key areas; our research-informed teaching; our commitment to nurturing talent wherever it is found; and our benchmark-setting approach to embedding sustainability and enterprise into all that we do. We have both high hopes for, and expectations of our students, who are the custodians and co-creators of our student experience.

So, let me wish you every success with your studies at PUIC and I look forward to welcoming you to Plymouth University.
