University of Plymouth International College (UPIC)


UPIC has been delivering high-quality foundation, first year and pre-masters programmes in partnership with the University of Plymouth since 2009. The College is part of Navitas, a leading global education provider, and based at our city centre campus.

To date, over 1,000 students from around the world have successfully progressed into the University.* 

Courses are specially designed for EU and international students who don’t meet the requirements for direct entry to their chosen degree, with a focus on developing the standard of English, study skills and subject knowledge required for success at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

Students benefit from:

  • full access to University facilities
  • small class sizes and highly qualified tutors
  • a dedicated Student Services team, providing around-the-clock support
  • help with visas, pre-arrival, arrival and accommodation
  • single Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) for the duration of studies, including UPIC programme
  • pre-sessional English (if required).
