At UTC Plymouth we accept young people who have a genuine interest in the technical and practical aspects of the courses we run. Our college is the place to study if you:

have an aptitude for science, technology or engineering
want a new, hands-on experience from your education
are prepared to meet the expectations and commitments of UTC Plymouth
We accept new students at the start of Year 10 or Year 12. We’ll also happily accept applications from 16 or 17-year-olds seeking a second chance having already begun a post-16 course and withdrawn.
