University of Portsmouth

Portsmouth | South East England

City By the sea

Ucas code: P80

Portsmouth is a vibrant waterfront city on the south coast with a rich maritime history. A flat and compact city, Portsmouth is easy to get around on foot or by bike and most University buildings are located in the centre. There is always plenty going on, whether in the bustle of the city centre or in the fresh air and open spaces of the seafront and the common.

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.
