• HOSPITALITY AND EVENT MANAGEMENT  The University of Plymouth would like to invite Year 12 students to participate in our Cruise Management Open Day in partnership with Celebrity Cruises on Saturday 9 June 2018.  This special event will take place on-board The Eclipse, a Celebrity Cruise Ship in Southampton and will provide an excellent opportunity for those interested in studying for the BSc (Hons) Cruise Management degree or have shown an interest in hospitality, to get a real-world experience of a career in this industry. This unique event will also give your students an unforgettable opportunity to find out more about studying Cruise Management at the University of Plymouth, meet our academics and current students and find out about management opportunities within the cruise industry.  We are the only university in the UK to offer this degree so we wanted to give your students the opportunity to come and experience an event like no other. We would be grateful if you could forward this information on to students who have shown interest in studying cruise or hospitality programmes at university level.  They will then be able to book on through the button below.  If they wish, they can attend with a parent or friend, however, their guest will also need to book on so we have all of the relevant information to get them on-board the cruise liner.  If you would like any further information about this event, please contact us at: fob.recruitment@plymouth.ac.uk  .  See https://plymouthuniversity.secure.force.com/pmtx/evt__sem_Detail?id=a130X00000JYHNP


  • STUDENT FINANCE.  Deadline approaching for student finance – new students should apply now! The deadline to make sure you get your money in time for the start of your course is 25 May 2018.

If you have already started your application, log back into your student finance account now and finish it before the deadline.


Please note that neither I nor Wellington have vetted or significantly researched these opportunities.  They have been selected due to being of potential interest to pupils and assumed to be supported by a recognised institution and thus thought to be worthy of note.  Do please carry out your own research and do please let me know if you have any opinions on these opportunities, good or bad, so this service can be improved.

If any course you are interested in is during term time make sure you seek HM permission to miss any of your school commitments before you book a place on the course.
