Choosing where and what to study
We'd obviously love you to choose Portsmouth. But we also want to make sure you choose the right course and university for you.
Start by considering what you want to study and what qualifications and experience you need to get a place. If you’re at school or college, your tutors and careers adviser can give you a hand.
You need to pick a subject that really interests you, as you'll be studying on your course for 3 or 4 years. Your course choice will also have a big impact on your future career. So make sure you check what your career prospects will be once you graduate.
You’ll also need to check its entry requirements to make sure you have the right skills and knowledge to complete the course successfully.
If you're applying to join us as a new, full-time undergraduate student, remember that in some cases we can guarantee you a room in halls, if you make us your firm first choice, and meet our accommodation deadlines.
