Parents and supporters’ welcome information

Studying at the University of Plymouth is a life-changing, transformative experience, and we know that at times of change it’s important to feel supported. Because of that, the University offers a range of support services to students – be that helping them find a part-time job, developing their academic skills, finding accommodation or support with their wellbeing.

But, we also know supporting someone at university – a son, daughter, partner or family member, can also be daunting. This webpage outlines key information about the university experience for those of you who are the parent or supporter of a current student, to help you understand their life at university and how you can help them.
