Parents and supporters’ welcome information

Studying at the University of Plymouth is a life-changing, transformative experience, and we know that at times of change it’s important to feel supported. Because of that, the University offers a range of support services to students – be that helping them find a part-time job, developing their academic skills, finding accommodation or support with their wellbeing.

But, we also know supporting someone at university – a son, daughter, partner or family member, can also be daunting. This webpage outlines key information about the university experience for those of you who are the parent or supporter of a current student, to help you understand their life at university and how you can help them.

Studying during the Covid-19 pandemic

Here at the University of Plymouth, we appreciate that this is an unsettling time for our applicants and students, as well as their parents and supporters. You may be concerned about how the current situation might affect your application or studies.

We are committed to starting the 2020/21 academic year for all students in September 2020. The University campus will be operational and you will be able to study and engage in person regularly with other students and staff.
