Course information


The city of Plymouth is on the coast, near the many small fishing villages of Cornwall. Plymouth is the major city of the southwest and offers cultural attractions such as museums and professional theater. It is a three hours' rail trip from London and also offers a ferry link to mainland Europe. A natural harbor, Plymouth was the port from which the Pilgrims sailed in 1620. Some of the oldest remnants of civilization still exist in the Southwest, including standing stone circles of which Stonehenge is the best known. Area sporting facilities include sailing, windsurfing, and horseback riding in Dartmoor National Park.

Consistently ranked one of the top modern universities in the UK, the University of Plymouth has a strong record of excellence, enterprise and innovation across its teaching and research activities. The university has an excellent reputation for its teaching quality, having performed very well in all teaching reviews carried out by external bodies since 1996. Total University of Plymouth enrollment: 23,000 (including 1,500 international students from 100 different countries).

ISEP-Exchange programs allow students to participate in reciprocal exchanges with students at ISEP member institutions worldwide, while paying their home university tuition. Students attending US universities that are ISEP-Exchange members are eligible to apply for these programs at other international ISEP-Exchange member universities. Chances of placement vary by location.

ISEP-Direct programs allow students to enroll directly in a host institution abroad, instead of exchanging places with another student. Chances of placement are typically excellent for qualified applicants and some sites offer special academic programs and excursions. Students attending US universities that are either ISEP-Exchange members or ISEP-Direct members can participate in ISEP-Direct programs abroad.
