INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Following an intensive period of development, in consultation with students and practicing artists, Plymouth College of Art is preparing to launch its extended creative studio pedagogy, a hybrid of live online and on-campus creative practice within the physical environment of the college’s rich diversity of industry-standard studios and workshops. In line with Government guidelines, we'll be welcoming undergraduate students and staff back on campus from 5 October 2020 and postgraduate students from 12 October. You can find more information here. We are currently working with accommodation providers and our academic teams to come up with individual support plans for you if your arrival to the UK is delayed or affected by COVID-19. Please get in touch with us by emailing international@pca.ac.uk if you have any concerns or questions.

Our horizons couldn’t be more international


Plymouth's place in the history books is a true reflection of how much our city values international perspectives. Across this harbour have sailed Charles Darwin and The Beagle, Robert Falcon Scott bound for the Antarctic, Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance, Napoleon imprisoned on the Bellerophon, survivors of The Titanic and innumerable pilgrim ships, bullion ships and warships, and the world famous Mayflower Steps on Plymouth’s historic Barbican mark the place that the Pilgrim Fathers set sail from on their voyage to the New World in 1620.
