University of Portsmouth

The University of Portsmouth is a place where you can enjoy the best university experience and launch a successful career. We have a Gold rating in the UK Government's Teaching Excellence Framework for the quality of our teaching, our learning environment and student outcomes after university. We offer the highest quality teaching and learning opportunities in the UK - from simulated learning environments where you can get hands-on, practical experience, to exciting internships and the opportunity to enrich your study with community-based volunteering. We're recognised as a world-leader in higher education and review our curriculum every year to make sure you receive the best possible teaching. This means what you learn on your course will be the most up-to-date knowledge, shaped by our world-leading research, practiced in our state-of-the-art facilities, and guided by our strong employer partnerships. We also listen to our students - your opinions and feedback, as well as the latest knowledge, research and expertise shape our curriculum. These are some of the reasons why 89% of our students were satisfied with their course in the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS) and why 19 of our courses achieved 100% satisfaction. Within six months of graduating, more than 96% of Portsmouth graduates find jobs or continue their studies, earning an average salary of £23,000. This is higher than the sector average. A compact waterfront city with a mix of urban, historic and green spaces, Portsmouth is a great place to live and study. Finding somewhere to live is no hassle because we guarantee you a room in halls in your first year when you make us your firm choice (and meet accommodation deadlines).

Student Union

The University of Portsmouth Students' Union (UPSU) is at the heart of University life and many graduates say it was one of the highlights of their university experience. The Union offers life-changing opportunities that complement your studies. For instance, you can have fun, relax and make friends by joining one or more of our 200 student-led societies and Athletic Union sports clubs. You can also gain fantastic experience on student-led media by writing for The Galleon newspaper or Pugwash magazine or by presenting on our Pure FM radio station or UPSU TV channel. What's more, you can find your student voice and make your course the best it can be by becoming a Course Rep. Each year students elect five Sabbatical Officers who get paid to lead the charity and become trustees for a whole year. Becoming an Officer offers fantastic training and experience, which you can include on your CV.

Non financial student support

We're here to support you with dedicated services all the way through university. We offer housing, academic and personal support (including disability support), chaplaincy (including dedicated facilities for various religions), counselling, health and medical care, and childcare services.

  • Deferred entry

  • Taking a gap year gives students the opportunity to learn new skills, travel, earn some money and gain new experience. Some of the University's Schools and Departments are willing to consider applications for deferred entry. If you apply for deferred entry, e.g. in 2014 (for a 2015 start), you must still apply by the relevant UCAS application deadline, and meet the conditions of any offers by August 2014.
  • Disability

  • We are committed to fair admission practice and welcome applications from people with disabilities. During the application process the University considers all relevant information about your disability and needs and, where possible, aims to provide relevant support. Information regarding disability has no bearing on the academic assessment of an application. Our Additional Support and Disability Advice Centre (ASDAC) can give you more information and they encourage you to contact them at the earliest point in your application process so they can get an understanding of your needs.
