The University is at the heart of Portsmouth and we have a strong commitment to our regional community, and particularly to the city, embedded in our strategy. This commitment is longstanding, at least since the opening of the Municipal College in 1908.
Portsmouth graduates earn more than the sector average. Six months after completing an undergraduate course, a Portsmouth graduate’s average salary has gone up by £1,500 this year to £23,000. The University of Portsmouth prides itself on being an inclusive environment for staff and students. We have a diverse student population from over 120 countries. Equality, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of all University activity. The University buildings are located in the heart of the city, about 4 km from the coast. Nearby you can find the port and the exciting shopping and leisure complex of the city, Gunwharf Quays.
