We've tried to provide all the information you will need if you are thinking about coming to study at the University of Plymouth from Qatar. 

If you need to know anything else, you can contact our team using the details below.


We require applicants from Qatar to have completed a General Secondary School Certificate (‘Shahadat Al-Thanawaya Al-Aama’) plus an acceptable International Foundation Year or equivalent.
