Meet our researchers and discover how research is making a difference

Discover neuroscience and how normal brain function compares to a diseased brain. Delve into antibiotic resistance – one of the biggest threats to human health globally, learn how robots can help people in care homes and discover the insole system with sensors to analyse gait and how it benefits people with diabetes at risk of foot ulcers.

Find out more about our research through the Institute of Translational and Stratified Medicine (ITSMed) and Institute of Health and Community.

Study with us

From optometry and restorative dentistry to medicine and midwifery, we offer the largest range of healthcare programmes in the South West, some of which benefit from 100 per cent graduate employment.

High quality teaching

University of Plymouth Peninsula Medical School (PMS) has made the top two in the UK for medical student experience as an organisation offering primary medical qualifications – with 98% of students ‘satisfied overall’ with the quality of the course.

The University of Plymouth’s Peninsula Dental School has come joint top of a key UK survey that asks students to rate their institution based on teaching quality.

100% of students on the BDS (Hons) Bachelor of Dental Surgery course said that they were ‘satisfied overall with the quality of the course’ in the 2018 National Student Survey (NSS) – putting it joint first out of 16 dental schools in the UK.

Committed to widening participation

We're committed to widening participation and to prove it we've launched a medical degree with a foundation year, helping people from disadvantaged backgrounds become doctors. The programme is designed as a route into medicine for students who might not otherwise access higher education.
