An enjoyable experience all in all, there’s only two buildings off-campus really which is emdeck or cookworthy, but they’re quite close anyways. If you hate hills, invest in an electric bike. Wide range of universities where I have seen many people in them passionate about making them fun for everyone. I’ve personally never had a problem with the wifi after I was able to connect. The careers service is mainly whatever you make of it really, though they are easy to find and there’s always someone there in office hours. I studied biomed last year and would say the best resource we had was the lab plus where you can practice practical methods.

Not really been able to experience it yet due to covid! But hopefully in September I can!
Really helpful staff, great location and good lecture rooms
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.
Haven’t really taken it all in yet but hopefully within the next few years I’ll be able to do that and much more.
During divide there’s not much to say as we can’t go to the campus ourself, so there’s not much to do
University is modern and the SU is cheap for drinks. It’s also easy to get into town :)
Haven't been able to visit campus a lot due to covid
Very supportive environment. For my course (MH Nursing) lecturers are very supportive considering current situations. I love this uni!!
Absolutely have loved my first year at Plymouth - even with the difficult year we have had. I really feel part of the uni and am really looking forward to a more 'normal' academic year for year 2!
Supportive staff. Nice campus, lots of clubs and societies to choose from
Good university with nice facilities
I really like going to uni here, if only it wasn't all online this year
Very helpful people, great environment, 100% recommend
An overall solid uni, some courses are better than others however ocean science has been treating me great! Cannot say anything bad about marine sciences.
Supportive staff, Good campus facilities
Great location. Very modern library.
Plymouth university is an amazing uni with an amazing campus. Student life is great and the facilities are brilliant. Likely to be a student here.
Great SU and big campus. Library is great
Good however have been appalling with covid stuff
The university campus is a lovely place to walk through and it has a brilliant library where you can study.
Overall the university of Plymouth has been great for my first year here, and the reason for not getting all 5 stars is due to Covid I haven’t got the full experience of the facilities yet.
I love it despite not being able to go on campus much the lecturers have made it the best they could
Careers Service is great for advice and finding jobs or experience which will benefit your degree. Clubs and societies have been great in the past few years but COVID has affected this. Hopefully people will be more eager to join these societies once the pandemic is over.
Due to coronavirus I have not been able to go on campus much, however the times I have been the facilities have been great. The university has done a good job making everything accessible online as well.
Plymouth University has a very good reputation and has very understanding professors
Love the university and my course
Really good i very bappy with everything
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.
It’s alright beautiful and peaceful city I guess
Nice campus with modern buildings and lots of facilities available to students. Lots of interesting clubs and societies to choose from too.
Love the uni, great location. Great library facilities and it’s by the coast!
Great uni, the teachers are very helpful
Great very friendly and easily application process Staff friendly and very helpful
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.
This university is a good university to study. It offers good facilities on-campus, the careers service offers high quality assistance and the internet/wifi is pretty good.
Lots of societies from scuba diving to underwater hokey
Everything looked good at open day. Didn't actually go though
I love the way in which the course is structured and how the spiral curriculum allows us to build up on our prior knowledge
Excellent university with easy access to the surrounding city. This can be both a blessing and a curse however because people can appear to just disappear which can be deeply horrible when your trying to make friends
Great uni to be at, personally think it’s really underrated!!
Briliiant campus, right in city centre close to train station, bus ans coach stations also close the the hoe/barbican, every thing you want is in walking distance. Wide range of sports and societies with a lot of courses having their own socs. SU events are regular and very inclusive and SU night club is also ace.
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.
The University gave me a sense of warmth and excitement. The facilities are brilliant and so broad. It is easy to find my way around the uni which makes me feel more at ease.
Plymouth was my first option best decision of my life to choose to go to this uni
Great university, definitely a place to study
Amazing friendly atmosphere with amazing courses and lectures! Truly felt like home away from home!
Very excited to start child nursing in September.
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.
I was happy with my experience at Plymouth University, the degree was mostly as advertised with broken iPad pledge. Careers service was very helpful. There's societies for any interest. The campus network has poor bandwidth.
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.
Uni is okay, not much to say. Bog standard. Lots of social events to attend to, all so much fun. Facilities open late so always great to complete work in the evening.
Good place to stuffy if you like a small city.
Fantastic university. Amazing spirts clubs and SU
I really enjoyed my course and found the lectures interactive, with a mix of practicals rather than just all lectures.
Never had issue with the internet, the SU holds good events and the campus is quite clean and relatively easy to navigate.
Super nice uni, that's very up to date and clean. Staff are all pretty friendly and the campus / city in general is a nice green place. There's all sorts of help available, almost too much, you don't know where to go to.
Sorry parent of so cant comment but from what my daughter tells me it has been excellent
Good uni with a good SU all staff friendly
Nice university. Comprehensive offerings pertaining to study and career
sadly poor course is being discontinued, only a handful of us doing it very disapointed
would avoid Plymouth at all cost, the council are greedy and will find multiple ways steel your money plain and simple when you can't pay the overinflated prices of living CT parking and anything else they can charge you for they will pass it on to the worst DC company around well known for tactics and generally nasty behavior, had to take them to court over it as they were charging fees which were unwarranted. would never go back to this SH
Eduroam is the worst but at least it's better than the internet at my accommodation Central Park Towers
Regardless of league tables ranking, the University of Plymouth surprises many who know little about this hidden gem of a university, set in a fantastic coastal city with a vibrant student scene and excellent nightlife, it offers is one of the best modern universities in the UK. One of my best decisions to date was to come here after my grades weren't up to par, in allowing me to study my chosen subject anyway. A very unique place indeed.
If you plan to get a job with your degree, go elsewhere.
The university itself is decent wide range of courses, good number of clubs and the SU is very helpful. The wifi is terrible it is a 50/50 chance if it works. 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.
Wi-Fi everywhere, all the facilities you need, great uni library. Clubs and societies are frequent and friendly, and the SU are great
Although they could do with more society's and clubs. Besides that, its honestly such a brilliant and welcoming university.
Cracking uni a good learning environment
Eduroam......... it sucks but it's there... the SU is decent tho
It's a good uni. The wifi for me works very well and it's a good location.
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!
Lots of clubs and societies if you are that way inclined, internet is really fast!
WiFi can be a bit of a pain at times but all wired networks are ok
Been here for about a year, absolutely fantastic university, always things going on, supportive university staff and amazing city
Good range of societies and outside degree activities. Su is expensive and after a very nasty incident involving the manager couldnt get any form of apology
Lovely campus, location and variety of facilities!
Okay uni, but I wish I had looked into it more.
Lovely uni and good facilities for us to use !
The student union is really good. We have lots of clubs and societies
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.
Love Plymouth and don't think I could have landed in a better Uni!
Campus is great and in a great location in the city. There's so many societies that you can join with more being created every year too. Wifi is awful and doesn't work more than it does. Apparently the provider is belng changed though so should be improved.
Haven't started university as of yet, however on my applicant open day I was very impressed with what I had seen.
Nice campus, I don't think the SU is particularly very good
Sometimes the internet can be pretty s***, nice big library and the SU on a weekend is normally always busy and cheap.
its a university, be happy you made it this far
so glad I ended up here, couldn't imagine myself anywhere else!
We may not be the highest ranked uni in the UK but we more than make up for it with a great city, great clubs, great people and enthusiastic lecturers.
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.
Perfect location, good facilities. Small issue on green areas but thats expected in the city centre
A diverse and interesting university that has great facilities, an incredible students union and based in an amazing city.
Everything seems available and friendly .
Is a good university, a nice friendly atmosphere. However if you are an international student who will be flying home frequently, you must be prepared and organised for a long traveling routes.
Love Plymouth University, would recommend it to everyone, haven't had any issues but still had alot of support, from fundraising events to providing toast on campus during nights out
A good place to study and I'm very happy that I'm a student here
It's decent, not my first choice, or second.
Amazing University, location is great, very good experience
Great uni for both learning and socialising, everything and everyone is close and the facilities are great!
Accommodation is at pricey but alright, join societies they are amazing and all round love the plymouth campus
Good nightlife, uni is good but SU needs cleaning
