University of Plymouth

The University of Plymouth is renowned for high quality, internationally-leading education, research and innovation.

With a mission to ‘Advance Knowledge and Transform Lives’, Plymouth is a *top 50 research university with clusters of world-class research across a wide range of disciplines including marine science and engineering, medicine, cybersecurity and psychology. A three-time winner of the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education, the university has been named as one of the top 25 institutions globally in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings 2021 for sustainable development and 1st in the world for the quality of its marine research and teaching.

The university has a strong track record for teaching and learning excellence, and has one of the highest numbers of National Teaching Fellows of any UK university. With over 18,000 students, and a further 6,000 plus studying for a Plymouth degree at partner institutions in the UK and around the world, and over 142,000 alumni pursuing their chosen careers globally, it has a growing global presence.

As a partner college student, you can access online University services, use its library, electronic resources and learning support materials through its web-based student portal (including access to the Careers Service online careers information [MyCareer]). You can link in with the Students’ Union (UPSU) and access sports clubs, societies, the advice service, volunteering opportunities, student representation and university sports facilities. Together with the services and support from Petroc, you will have the benefits of a large university with all the advantages of being taught in a smaller community atmosphere.
