We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The University of Plymouth is a high-quality, research-rich institution with a mission to advance knowledge and transform lives through specialist teaching. 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, situated between picturesque Dartmoor and the beaches of Cornwall.
You may be eligible for a government funded loan of up to £11,222 towards the cost of your masters degree.
There are also a number of additional ways to fund postgraduate study at the University of Plymouth, including scholarships, studentships, and grants from charitable trusts. Details of these can be found on our general funding webpages.
Plymouth's record demonstrates that we undertake world-leading research of global significance across the vast majority of our research areas. In addition to this, our students work alongside world-class experts. Our research degrees, which include ResM, MPhil, and PhD, can be studied full or part time.
A wide range of masters degree programmes are available, all of which reflect the disciplines of our academic experts. Programmes include training in research methods and generic skills, as well as a comprehensive body of subject-specific modules. Most are completed in 12 months (full time), although some part-time and distance learning modes are available.
