To reward outstanding achievement the University of Plymouth offers scholarship schemes to help towards funding your studies. You could get up to 50% off your tuition fees in your first year.
Applicants will be required to have completed the Diplôme du Baccalauréat Général also known as 'Le Bac' (French Baccalaureate). 12/20 in maths and English usually required regardless of programme.

“My first journey to Plymouth was when I came for an open day. I flew from Bordeaux to London and got a train from London Paddington to Plymouth.
The University of Plymouth had so much to offer in terms of university life and seemed the best place to study Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology, something I couldn’t study back in France. There is so much to do at the University, with all the clubs, societies, and all your course mates that you will never feel alone.”
