The University of Plymouth was previously known as Polytechnic South-West; before that, its constituent bodies were known as Plymouth Polytechnic , Rolle College , and Seale-Hayne College . Designated as a university in 1992 along with the other former polytechnics, Plymouth has a reputation as one of England's leading new universities. In part because of its coastal location and strong maritime history, it is particularly renowned for marine engineering and biology. It also scores well in law, psychology, computer science and art history. The university offers a course in "Medialab Arts", a unique new media and computer science hybrid course. The buildings of the new Medical School have recently been completed, and the School began admitting students in September 2004.
Jointly with the University of Exeter and the National Health Service in the region, the University runs the recently founded Peninsula Medical School . A new £13 million building on the University of Plymouth's main campus provides teaching rooms, office space, a clinical skills laboratory and research facilities for the School.
