Student Participation in Arts scheme (SPiA)

How it 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, or via our ticket booking line 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.

Student Gallery Nights

Watch out for any information about our upcoming Student Gallery Nights.

A chance for all University of Plymouth students to come to The Levinsky Gallery and enjoy free refreshments, the chance to meet new people, make new friends and get involved with our fun activities.
