University of Portsmouth started out in 1908 when the Park building opened as a Municipal college and public library, focused on chemistry and engineering. In 1969 the College became Portsmouth Polytechnic. In 1992, after a decade as one of the largest and best performing polytechnics in the UK, the Polytechnic received university status and the University of Portsmouth was born.

The university has continued to grow and develop since gaining University status. Many new buildings and facilities have been built including in 2021 a £57 million awarding winning new Sports Centre.

“Studying BA (Hons) Accounting with Finance at Portsmouth gave me an understanding of both financial and management accounting. This helped me get to where I am today as it made me aware of what I enjoyed and where my strengths lie. The course also gave me the opportunity to undertake a work-based module where I was able to gain insight into working in the real world. I was so proud of myself when I received an award for ‘Outstanding Professionalism’, which really stood out to employers when applying for roles after I had graduated.”
