Your University of Portsmouth experience

The University of Portsmouth is very diverse as students and faculties from all over the world come to study and teach here and therefore bring their culture with them making Portsmouth lively. It invests heavily in student experience and provides all kinds of support to improve the experience. They are warm and welcoming.

I learned how to design and build something tangible, a real physical model by learning mechanical relations and principles. Being part University’s Formula Student Team is definitely a key highlight.

University has good learning resources for engineering. Many companies around Portsmouth do their research with the University which offers me a good learning opportunity from them.

University has very modern labs facilities and faculty has years of industrial experience and they help me learn about the applications of my knowledge gained on my course through industrial point of view.

What makes Portsmouth unique?

Portsmouth city has good combination of modern city facilities with a rich history. People here are friendly.

Everything is close by. The city is partially campus based but many of the university buildings are spread across the city making it lively and not too dull. The city has fairly good weather compared to other parts of UK. Living expenses are cheap and plus it’s a coast city! A sunny weekend is all we need. It is also close to London.
