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.

Our 19 000 students, including 3 000 from over 100 countries, are supported by over 3000 staff. We offer superb facilities in a vibrant waterfront location – a university by the sea but in the heart of one of Britain’s most historic cities.  The main Guildhall campus, dotted around the city centre, has undergone extensive redevelopment with the establishment of a University Quarter.
