School of Humanities and Performing Arts High Achievers Scheme

The High Achievers Scheme is open from September 2019 to students who have applied to study from September 2019 on our degrees in English, English and Creative Writing, History, Art History, Music, Anthropology, and all combined degrees in these subject areas.

The School of Humanities and Performing Arts is a dynamic and highly successful School of internationally renowned researchers and outstanding teachers, as recognised in national audits of our departments. Our students are very active and successful not only in their academic studies but across a range of extra-curricular activities, arts events, and internships here and abroad in Europe and the US.

We know that our students represent the future of our subjects. We would like to foster your academic potential too through our high achievers' scheme, which is designed to demonstrate our belief in your potential to be an excellent University student. If you are a high-achieving student, have an interesting personal statement as well as being predicted good grades, then you are eligible for the scheme.

If we think you qualify for our scheme, then we will reward your potential by making you an unconditional offer if you decide you would like to make our degree at the University of Plymouth your firm choice. Once you make this choice on UCAS Track, then your unconditional offer will be confirmed by the University's Admissions office.

You can then proceed to make arrangements for your accommodation and move to Plymouth in September. You can also make early contact with your Head of Department so that you can learn more about what you will be studying on your degree, receive your reading lists for the new academic year, and invitations to our public lectures and events.
