Faculty of Science and Engineering
Marine Biology and Oceanic Studies are a forte subject at the University of Plymouth. They’re ideally placed and have extensive facilities to carry out research on all things sea-bound, with a COAST Lab, a wet lab, a Ship Simulator and a fleet of research boats.
Plymouth is at the fore of climate change and conservation research with its research degrees - Professor Richard Thompson and PhD student Imogen Napper alone have led ground-breaking research on microfibers and microplastics in the ocean.
The University also offer a wide range of civil engineering degrees, many of which are accredited, thus improving the employability of graduates from these courses.
Faculty of Health and Human Sciences
The faculty of Health and Human Sciences offers degree courses ranging from Psychology and Social Work, to Nursing, Midwifery and Emergency Care, covering a huge range of health and care services. Plymouth’s professional development modules add significant employment value to these Health and Human Science degrees. Plymouth’s Nursing and Midwifery School works in partnership with local NHS trusts to drive forward clinical research.
Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry
The University is renowned for its Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedicine courses. Organised within the Institute of Translational and Stratified Medicine overlapping with Healthcare Services and NHS partners, the University of Plymouth’s research brings together world class strengths and trans-disciplinary collaboration. Many students undertake training at the nearby Derriford Hospital, as well as the Royal Cornwall Hospital site in Treliske.
The University has further illustrated how it is at the forefront of ground breaking research through the Health Research Showcase, which took place in London in October 2017.
Faculty of Arts and Humanities
The addition of The House, a state of the art performing arts centre located on campus adjacent to the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery, has added value to this faculty’s courses. Opened in October 2014, The House is a 200-seat flexible studio theatre, built to the very highest technical and sustainable specification. Its facilities are world class, and it is fast attracting some of the best national and international artists.
The School of Business offers a range of courses from Economics to Business Management, with a strong focus on internationalism and employability. There are extensive workshops and facilities for the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, and students can receive help with business start-up planning and compete for seed funding. Plymouth’s links within the city provide extra opportunity for graduate employability and work experience. Plymouth pride themselves on training the scientists, engineers, policy-makers, artists, technicians and CEOs of the future, and the research they undertake contributes hugely to worldwide projects.
