Home to a population of 250,000, Plymouth is situated on a natural harbor. In fact, Plymouth was the port from which the Pilgrims sailed in 1620. Plymouth is the major city in southwest England that offers cultural attractions like museums, professional theatre, and art galleries. Plymouth affords students many opportunities for travel, as it is situated right by a rail station with daily trains to London, as well as ferries to Spain and France.
The University of Plymouth is located in southwest England, between Devon and Cornwall. The campus is situated in the center of Plymouth, a city steeped in history. Plymouth has an enrollment of 30,000, many of whom are international students. Students at Plymouth have easy access to both the English Countryside and beaches.
COURSES AND CREDITS
A list of the courses offered at Plymouth is available on the international student page. Students applying to this program should plan to meet with the appropriate academic advisors to help determine course selection and to seek the necessary course approval(s).
All students will be registered by the Study Abroad Office as full-time students during their semester abroad, which is 12 hours for undergraduate students and 9 hours for graduate students. Undergraduate students must return with the equivalent of at least 12 hours of credit on their host university transcript (9 hours for graduate students). Students can take additional hours and are not limited to the minimum full-time requirement while abroad. All courses are graded on an ABCDF scale. There is no Pass/Fail.
Plymouth offers a wide range of housing options for students studying there. For more information, please go to their accommodations page. Some of their housing options even have a beautiful view of the city and the sea right out of your window!
For the Plymouth exchange, students are responsible for paying:
Current, full-time, UM tuition (including non-resident fees, if applicable)
UM Study Abroad fee (includes the cost for international health insurance)
Housing costs (details and payment are usually handled between the student and the host university)
Travel expenses, books and supplies, personal living costs, passport and visa fees (all the responsibility of the student)
Students who withdraw or become ineligible after the application deadline will be responsible for a withdrawal fee. For more details, please refer to the Study Abroad Policies & Procedures page.
Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing to study abroad and must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA. Additional or more stringent requirements may apply depending on the program.
In general, financial aid will apply to UM study abroad programs. All students should review the study abroad information on the Financial Aid Office website. It is the student’s responsibility to meet with a financial aid advisor to discuss how aid packages apply to study abroad. Third party scholarships may also be available for specific programs, so students should discuss study abroad early and often with the Study Abroad Office and the Financial Aid Office.
For current tuition costs, the Office of the Bursar provides a tuition estimator. (link: http://www.olemiss.edu/depts/bursar/estimator.html)
