    The University of Portsmouth has a slightly bad rep in England, but for me it has been an amazing experience. There are a lot of international students, and its really easy to socialise with different groups of students when you live in university halls. Accomodation offered by the university could be improved depending on the halls that you choose. There is a free Uni bus that runs through most of the city, which is amazing.

    Portsmouth is ranked 21st in the UK University Rankings (Guardian 2020), and among the top modern university in the United Kingdom in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

    We have almost 4,000 international and EU students from over 140 different countries, giving us a multicultural and dynamic feel to our campus. We have made investments in excess of £100 million in to our buildings and resources over the last 10 years including a brand news sports centre which will be finished in 2021.

    Our location is fantastic: you’ll be greeted by miles of beautiful beaches, pretty green spaces and a friendly, optimistic vibe.

    The city sits just across the Channel from mainland Europe, and is home to people from every corner of the world. We also get some of the UK’s best weather: our springs and summers are sunnier and warmer than elsewhere in the UK, and our winters are milder.

    Nobody comes to university just to earn a degree: you’re here to grow as a person, to meet new friends, to learn more about your interests and to explore your potential career. We’re here to help with all of that.
