University of Portsmouth

Portsmouth is the university that sees you as you are: one-of-a-kind. When you join our friendly community on the UK's only island city, you won’t be expected to fit into a mould. Instead, we’re here to help you become even more you. 

Our degrees are designed to give you the skills, knowledge and confidence you need to make your life anything you want it to be. Wherever you’re coming from, we’ll help you get to where you want to be. 

A young and ambitious university, we’re respected for the quality of our teaching, learning and student outcomes. At Portsmouth you can expect an all-round excellent student experience, with our commitment to boost your employability.

Here are a few things that make us stand out:

  • With a £400m plan for the future of our campus, we’re always improving and updating – from our Centre for Creative and Immersive XR, to our new sustainable Ravelin Sports Centre.
  • From facilities that simulate workplaces, to live projects with industry and opportunities for professional placements, you’ll learn practical skills that employers value.
  • Portsmouth achieved the full five-star rating for excellence in the internationally recognised QS World University rankings 2024.
  • With transferable skills, industry insight and professional connections, it’s no wonder 94 per cent of Portsmouth graduates are in work or further study (HESA 2020/21).
  • Portsmouth achieved a Gold rating in the most recent Teaching Excellence Framework, which means it offers some of the most outstanding teaching in the UK. 
  • Portsmouth has launched a unique approach to placements called Connected Degrees. This is a 3 year course with a 4th year paid placement. Most courses offer the freedom to choose when you take your placement: either before or after your final year.

And if you need help with anything – from wellbeing to academic skills – there’s extensive support on tap. We also offer wide-ranging financial support including scholarships and bursaries. Whatever success means to you, you’ll find it at Portsmouth.
