The University of Portsmouth (legally University of Portsmouth Higher Education Corporation, also known as Portsmouth University) is a public university in the city of Portsmouth, Hampshire, England.The earliest incarnation of the University existed in the Victorian Era, and until 1992 the University was known as Portsmouth Polytechnic before being granted university status. It is a high performing University Alliance establishment across national league tables, placed within the top 25 of UK universities. It is one of only four universities in the south-east to be rated Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework, placing it in the top 20%.
The roots of the University can be traced back to the Portsmouth and Gosport School of Science and Art. which opened in 1870 and was funded by subscription. Technical education (including science-based subjects) later became the responsibility of the local authority, which founded Portsmouth Municipal Technical Institute in 1894 to fullfil this function. However, the city required a permanent purpose-built home for technical education and as a consequence Portsmouth Municipal College was constructed on a site behind Portsmouth Guildhall.Portsmouth offers more than 200 undergraduate degrees and 150 postgraduate degrees, as well as 65 research degree programs.The university formerly validated BSc (Hons) degrees in Acupuncture and MSc courses in Traditional Chinese medicine that were carried out by the London College of Traditional Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, a private education provider that collapsed in early 2011.
