2020 Graduates

For 2020 Graduates who have not had a face-to-face graduation, the University is operating a survey to understand the level of demand for a graduation or alternative celebration event. 

  • If you are a 2020 completer and would like to participate in a graduation or alternative celebration event, you must inform the University by completing the survey on the Graduation website by 1st December 2021. 
  • For those that do not wish to attend an event but would like the opportunity to have professional photographs taken in gowns on campus later this year, the survey includes this option.

Graduate Outcomes survey for recent graduates

Graduate Outcomes (GO) is a survey to find out what recent graduates go on to do after they have graduated.

The survey is important because your opinions will help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development and the University to shape our programmes for students who are following in your footsteps.

Please keep your details up to date and respond if HESA contacts you to complete the survey.

Invenite: issue 5

Our magazine for alumni, supporters and friends of the University of Plymouth, both present and future.

Through a lens of current affairs, thought leadership and exclusive interviews, Invenite throws the spotlight on all that is special about this University and its people. 

Issue 3 includes an interview with Professor Daniel Martin OBE who has scaled Everest to research oxygen levels in humans, two alumni who have followed very different paths - one working as a voluntary paramedic in Nepal and one creating spectacular films - and three groups of students on their start-up business journeys.  It also looks at rip currents, storm chasing and beach erosion with the University's Coastal Processes Research Group, and sees how our campus will transform over the next few years.
