The standard of teaching is excellent and has exceeded my expectations within the first few weeks already. The student union/societies/sports clubs are amazing. The location of a city based campus is like no other.

Q
What is preferable, University accomodation or private ones, financial and security-wise?
By member445441 On 10th February 20
Private through a good agent like Purple Lettings. Reasons are you may be a party animal but not want to listen to lough music at 4am on Tuesday morning private houses are cheaper £100 per week as opposed to £150/£200 per week. The student houses in Plymouth tend to be really nice standard a bit more covid safe than a crowded building too

The University and Plymouth as a place are passable if you enjoy being by the sea. However, the staff is where a lot of the issues reside. It takes often a week or more to get any reply from lecturers or university staff, questions are often answered with short unhelpful responses, marking feedback is so minimal I feel as though I would have no idea how to improve. Lecturers use ancient PowerPoint that they didn't even create and are riddled with mistakes. Old lecture recordings are provided from years prior, often delivered by a different lecturer. Worst of all is the enrollment staff. I was not enrolled on 2 entire modules in my final year which has lead me to months of negotiation, the University wanting me to enroll again to following academic year but that not being an option for me means I will be studying an extra 4 months longer than intended, meaning I miss my regular graduation and causing many complications for me. They also enrolled me on a module I had already completed (:

Campus and it's facilities look good (we didn't get to go onto the campus as my course was completely online). There was quite a few different societies to choose from. There was very little help with careers but I am only in my first year.

A great university with plenty of campus facilities, including a 24/7 library with a large catalogue of literature, both physical and online copies. The Students' Union is also very active and involved in the academic and non-academic experiences of students. Plenty of choice of clubs and societies to choose from.

A relatively average university but I think with anything you get out what you put in. There's a wide range of clubs and societies to join. The student union team are always really friendly and offer advice that is independent from the University which is nice. The psychology department has a bunch of really friendly staff who are always willing to help.

My Computer Science course was a mostly well-run course with good, industry-relevant content. Lecturers were nice and module content was mostly fair and engaging ... minus a few exceptions. The most common recurrent teaching issue was that they kept unfairly expecting all group members of group assignments to contribute equally to all aspects of the assignment, when in practice the assignments could usually only be completed on-time by delegating specific roles to group members. We'd get unfairly disadvantaged by this in latter stages of the course. Campus facilities were really good - well equipped and maintained. The clubs and societies in particular were EXCELLENT. Huge variety on offer and each one was well-funded, so many good experiences were had there.

Great uni, some issues which are mainly faculty based. An example is if your doing a major and a minor you will only get help from your tutor with your major and 0 help for the minor. In my experience the lectures for my minor treated us like we didn’t count of the course, so many emails were disregarded.

University of Plymouth is so often overlooked but I have settled in so well. Amazing location (city and sea!!), and the university have amazing support networks and facilities. The library, the lecture halls, labs and the SU are all of equal importance to your experience and they’re all welcoming and of Hugh standards. My course (Criminology) is enjoyable and is run by wonderful lecturers, I obviously can’t speak for all courses but I am so happy here. Campus is clean and picturesque, and is in walking distance of everything including accommodation for all year groups. Plymouth itself is friendly with a good night life. I promise you will not be disappointed when you come to UOP.

Library very clean and open long hours. Other sports facilities are nice. I find there to be a lack in the range of societies, there's a lot that are just course societies. My friends in other universities have quite fun, niche societies that this uni doesn't have. The careers service seems alright, I get a lot of emails about employment fairs and internships but I study a healthcare course so they're not really relevant to me. Eduroam works fine. A lot of people complain its slow or disconnects but not for me. Uni really seems to care alot about students well-being - lot of student support services. My biggest complaint is the fact that you're not supposed to smoke in front of the library (5 meters I believe) but there is always a lot of people smoking right outside. Nothing's ever done about it. The walkway outside the library is the central pathway within the campus so you kind of have to take that path all the time unless you want to make a long detour.

As a disabled student this university is very bad for access, lifts are constantly broken and the promise of relocating lectures to a ground floor room is not held. There are quite a few buildings that only have one lift, so when it breaks down those with the need of one can not access their lectures sometimes for weeks. The campus layout is not very good for those with wheels. Disabled toilets also have the issue of breaking down a lot.

Amazing university! everyone is very nice and friendly and the facilities are really good. I definitely feel that the careers service is doing its job in helping people with CVs, Interviews, helping them find placements and so on and so forth. I can't say a lot about societies because i didn't really get involved but friends that did, found it to be a really nice experience. Overall, I would say Plymouth is a great uni to come to!

The university campus itself is quite close together which makes it easy to get to lectures. Also the university is right opposite a lot of bars and clubs which are very popular among students. Careers advice staff have been very friendly and helpful however throughout the rest of the university you still get the unhelpful stroppy reception ladies that seem to be everywhere.

The campus is amazing as it is compact yet still contains a huge library, lots of cafes, an amazing Students Union and lots of outside seating. However, what really lets down the high standards of the University is how poor the Wifi is. Some halls barely get any and have to rely on Ethernet.

Facilities around campus are brilliant, although they can get very busy.

The University of Plymouth is without a shadow of a doubt the best educational institution I have ever experienced. Not only is its numerous facilities extensive and greatly helpful in helping my learning and education experience, but the opportunities it provides is also fantastic; the fact that I am typing this currently from Plymouth, NH in the United States of America currently on international exchange just epitomises the fantastic opportunities have at this institution, and the mutual respect and desire between students and professors to learn and fulfil a young persons potential is really what makes the University of Plymouth an ideal place of learning for those who wish to truly push themselves to their fullest capabilities.

Halls Rant: Halls overpriced. Alexandra Works in particular is pretty s*** - the reception states on the door what times it's open but no one is ever there when you need them during those times. I never got my full deposit back for "damage" which I know was already there and wasn't my fault. And I was in a flat with three Chinese third year exchange students who didn't speak much English. Finally, the lift broke and even though there is CCTV in the lift they didn't know who did it and the whole building was charged - this also happened around the time everyone was moving out and it took weeks to fix. Moving out from the fifth floor wasn't fun.

Great campus and facilities in a really nice location. Staff are helpful and really engaging. Societies and the SU are pretty good most of the time. Career planning is somewhat limited if you're not studying a buisness related degree.

Good size university, wifi is all around on campus and very good. The SU is a good place to relax and get food for a reasonable price.

really like the uni everyone is really friendly and helpful and I always few safe around campus even on a night out which is important. The only fault I can think of is the poor computer use in the library. All the computers are awfully slow with some taking an hour to log on when the library is busy

If you want to do a geography or environment related course, this is THE place to be I think. The facilities are excellent and the department has an excellent, well-deserved reputation and I'm proud to be an environmental science student there. But the uni itself? If you are okay with the management spending £100,000 on a few graduation chairs and a further £300,000 on essentially a giant photo frame and are okay with rip-off halls then you will be right at home. Also, if this is the most sustainable uni in the UK, what on earth are the least sustainable ones like!?

Lovely campus, really friendly, but there could be more societies to choose from (although there is opportunity to set up your own), as there are several things I wanted to do but haven't been able to do. The wifi is generally good across campus, but I live in the student village and am unable to get wifi in my room without plugging into the ethernet (so I can't get on my phone's internet without going into the kitchen!).

The University Football Club is awful. They take your money and then don't really care if you're not good enough for one of the main teams. The staff are quite good, not great though. The SU isn't great, not particularly well loved from what I can tell. The WiFi on campus is OK sometimes, accommodation WiFi is annoying due to going down after every 10 minutes at times, and it is often labelled as 'limited'.

Review of Plymouth university

Good placement of campus Good working facilities Amazing library and online resources Well educated and helpful lecturers My course is perfect for me Fair work load and deadlines Good nightlife for me Good town centre Range of supermarket shops

Cons?
Halls accommodation not value for money Could be more support for students More information on financial and emotional support More events could be held at the SU (got a bit quiet after freshers week) More information on public transport around the city Doctors is terrible
