International student welcome
September coach service from London to Plymouth
To make your journey as easy as possible, we are providing an optional meet-and-greet coach service from London to Plymouth.
This service is only available for new international students arriving at London Heathrow Airport (unfortunately, due to limited space, this service is not for accompanying family or friends).
The cost of this coach service is £20.

About the journey

The journey time from London Heathrow Airport to the University of Plymouth campus is about four hours by coach.
We will meet you at the airport to guide you onto the coaches and join you when travelling to Plymouth. We are happy to answer questions you may have.
All coaches will be collecting students from the arrivals collection point at London Heathrow Airport, Terminal 2.
If you are not arriving at London Heathrow Airport Terminal 2, please allow enough time to get to Terminal 2 (the airport has a free bus service that travels between terminals).
All coaches will be departing from Heathrow at 11:00 British Summer Time.

Book your place

The coach service is only available on these dates:
