Supporting your journey into medicine, dentistry and biomedical science
heart of the University of Plymouth’s vision, there remains a clear and
continued commitment to access and participation. This applies to
all student groups across the student life cycle to ensure our students
have equal access to higher education, irrespective of their
background, in order to be successful while at university and to progress
into employment or postgraduate study. The
University works collaboratively with the Office for Students
to provide and deliver the highest quality access and participation for
disadvantaged pupils and under-represented groups.
The University of Plymouth Faculty of Health has a regional and national reputation for its widening access and participation work, and as part of our commitment to access and participation to medicine, dentistry and health courses, we undertake a series of initiatives to raise aspirations and healthcare.
From an access perspective,
the student life cycle commences much earlier and our
outreach engagement starts at primary school age. This is an important
stage as many children have already developed a sense of their
aspirations and capabilities by the end of Year 6.
