Plymouth has many pubs and clubs which offer different things. Different areas of town are quieter than others which appeals to different types of people. Pubs often have pub quizzes and other events for quieter nights whereas there is usually an event at a couple of clubs every single night. Wednesday is sports/societies night and is a particular good night to get to know new people and have a great time. Tuesdays are probably the quietest night around town but that doesnt mean its not still to be enjoyed theres always pound a pint at the brass monkey!!×

There is probably a team for every single sport you can think of. Once a year there is a competition called Varsity where Plymouth University plays against the other university in Plymouth, The University of St Mary and St John. It's good to go and watch the different sports and everyone really gets into it. There also seems to be a decent social scene revolving around sports, with the sports and societies going out most Wednesday evenings.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
