Register with UCAS
Here, you’ll be able to set up a username and password so you can revisit your application at any time.
Choosing a course
You can select up to five courses at a maximum of five universities on your UCAS application. There is no order of preference to your choices and you can apply for more than one University of Plymouth course.
Your personal statement
As part of your application through UCAS, you will be required to write a personal statement of approximately 500 words. This is your chance to sell yourself and demonstrate why you are the right student for a course.
It’s likely that writing a personal statement will be a new experience, so we share our advice on what we specifically look for in a personal statement.
Meeting entry requirements
Entry requirements vary depending which course you would like to study, but we usually look for a combination of predicted exam grades, subjects and qualifications.
Meeting entry requirements doesn't guarantee you a place with us. Some courses require other conditions that you need to meet, such as interviews, auditions or Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks.
After you apply
Once you’ve submitted your application to study with us, there are a number of steps that then take place.
Find out how we make our decision and what you need to do next, whether you receive an offer to study with us, or not.
If you have previously studied, made an application or an enquiry to the University of Plymouth and have since changed your nationality, you will be unable to enrol until evidence of your new nationality has been provided and verified.
We allow deferred entry on all standard courses – you can defer your application through UCAS when you apply. If you have already made an application, please contact our Admissions team for advice if you would like to change your year of entry.
For health and education courses we recommend that you contact our Admissions team as it is not standard practice to allow deferred entry due to non-academic requirements.
