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.×

Radnor halls is the ideal halls or residence within Plymouth. The prices were reasonable and the rooms and facilities were really good! Gilwell is not as good but if you are on a small budget they are ideal. Radnor, Gilwell, Robbins and Pilgrim are situated together which was great as it was like a student village and was right by town and the university!×

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.
