Consistently ranked one of the top modern universities in the U.K., 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. The total University enrollment is 23,000, including 1,500 international students from 100 different countries.

Students in business are strongly encouraged to apply. Many courses in maritime studies and environmental and earth sciences are complemented by field trips including diving expeditions. The Combined Arts Program, consisting of majors in art history, English, heritage, history, media arts, theatre and visual arts, welcomes ISEP students.

Course Description

ISEP students are able to choose modules (classes) from those available to incoming students. Other modules not listed on these pages may be available with the agreement of the academic exchange advisor.

For descriptions, from the fields of study page, select your general academic field. Then select a specific "course title" (e.g. "BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance"), which is the complete three year pathway toward a certain degree. Then click on the link entitled "course details" to obtain all the modules (classes) offered in that course. 


You must select modules within the same course (program) at the same academic year level for which you have the appropriate prerequisites.

Semester placements are possible in all subjects. However, please take note of our semester dates. There is an exam period in January, which can cause problems for students from North America who wish to come for semester one only. Students can opt to choose classes that have 100% coursework and submit electronically. Alternatively, we are able to send exam packs to their home institution – provided the home institution agrees to administer them.

ISEP participants are accepted for study by a relevant faculty. Students are usually only able to take a combination of courses currently available on recognized pathways. Cross-registration for modules taught in different courses (programs) is sometimes possible, but combinations cannot be guaranteed due to the potential for timetable clashes. Students may be required to select all modules from one particular course. Full-time students take 120 credits per year: typically six classes per year at 20 credits each, or three in a semester. Students sign up for classes on-site, during orientation. Students are given the option of having a tutor assist in course selection upon arrival in Plymouth.
