We've tried to provide all the information you will need if you are thinking about coming to study at Plymouth University from Kenya. If you need to know anything else, you can contact our team using the details below.


For undergraduate courses, you'll need good A levels or the Kenyan Certificate of Secondary Education plus an acceptable International Foundation Year or equivalent. Our partner college on campus, Plymouth University International College (PUIC), offers a wide variety of foundation courses. 

Visa requirements

You'll need prior entry clearance (a visa) if you're coming to study in the UK from Kenya.

Contact the British High Commission to begin your visa application process as soon as you've been accepted onto your course. You'll need a CAS form (Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies), and to show that you have enough money to fund your education and living expenses in the UK. We'll send more detailed information about visa application if you're successful in securing your place at Plymouth University.

Make sure you allow sufficient time for your application to be processed.
