How SPiA works

Did you know that as a University of Plymouth student you have up to £150 of credit to spend on films, music, talks, and dance and theatre performances at The Arts Institute?

It's easy: look out for the SPiA logo on selected Arts Institute events, either in the season guide or online on The Arts Institute events listings, then book your tickets online and simply bring your student card along with you on the night.

Levels of credit

  • £150: all arts students
  • £100: all other University of Plymouth students.

One ticket, per student, per event. Only events carrying the SPiA logo are included in the scheme.
