What we offer
The University of Portsmouth has a range of 40 full and part-time scholarships for selected science and technology Master's courses starting in September 2014.
Professionally accredited courses
Many of our courses are accredited by the BCS (the Chartered Institute for IT) which means that the knowledge and skills that you acquire through your studies will help you to gain Chartered Engineer or Chartered Scientist status.
A full range of industry software is available to all our students and researchers in our computer labs, which are supported by multi-platform network suites offering a variety of operating systems.
A year in industry
Over 50% of employers actively recruit graduates who have relevant work experience. So, taking an optional yearlong placement is an excellent way to get ahead in the job hunt. Our Student Placement and Employability Centre (SPEC) is dedicated to setting your career on the right course.
The Maths Café is a daily drop-in facility, available to any student of the University where you can receive help on any maths or stats problem you encounter in your studies. We also provide handouts on key topics and computer aided learning packages.
