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, robotics and psychology.

It 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 21,000 students, and a further 17,000 studying for a Plymouth degree at partner institutions in the UK and around the world, and more than 110,000 alumni pursuing their chosen careers internationally, the University has a growing global presence.

A twice winner of the Queen's Anniversary Prize for Higher and Further Education, and the first university in the world to be awarded a Social Enterprise Mark, Plymouth has transformed its campus and estate in recent years. This includes the opening of a Marine Building containing some of the country's most advanced wave tanks, a multi-million pound medical and biomedical research facility, a performing arts centre, and a waterfront marine research and teaching station, complete with diving centre. It also oversees an extensive regional network of business support facilities, including incubation, innovation, and science park infrastructure.
