The University of Plymouth is a modern campus university ideally placed in the centre of Britain’s Ocean City. In one of the UK’s most beautiful regions, Plymouth is a thriving city located on the South West coast, nestled between picturesque Dartmoor and Cornwall. The University is always looking to develop their facilities. Not only have they recently invested into their medical and health facilities, but they have refurbished their laboratories and invested in campus buildings which include spaces for marine and art disciplines. The Uni takes the stress out of securing a place in halls by guaranteeing housing to all applicants who put Plymouth as their firm choice by the deadline stated on their website.
