The University of Portsmouth is a leading modern university with a strong reputation for teaching and research. Many of our academics are international leaders in their fields and our students learn from experts who are pushing forward the boundaries of knowledge.

A student-friendly waterfront city, Portsmouth is an excellent place to study and live, and many students stay on after they graduate. There’s a great mix of modern urban and historic areas alongside green spaces and the beach, and it has a real community feel. It’s a compact city, and most university buildings, shops and entertainment are within walking distance of each other. Over 21,000 students, including 3000 from over 100 countries, are supported by over 2,500 staff.

Around half of students are on courses that lead to professional accreditation, and many more study on courses that offer real-life learning. Simulated learning environments include a mock courtroom, a newsroom, a health simulation suite, a £1m model pharmacy and a forensic house, where criminologists work on staged crime scenes.

The University is riding high: the 2013 national students survey placed Portsmouth within the top 25% of English universities for student satisfaction, with 88% of full-time students being satisfied or very satisfied with their course, placing it in the top 30% of mainstream English universities for overall satisfaction.
This year a new £14m wing opened on the Eldon building providing the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries with brand new purpose-built facilities. They include a new 200 seat cinema-quality screening room which doubles as a lecture theatre, a new exhibition space, seven large seminar rooms, an art shop and purpose-built fashion, textiles, architecture and interior design studios.
