Vice-Chancellor Professor Cara Aitchison wants to build on the university’s growing reputation for student satisfaction, social mobility and employability by doubling the student population at St Mark & St John’s purpose-built Derriford campus from 2,500 to 5,000.
The board of governors’ approved 10-year strategic plan – Challenging Horizons – which is already in effect, will enable the University of St Mark & St John to develop over the decade.
Despite being the third smallest of the United Kingdom’s 120 universities the University of St Mark & St John is
- top university for social mobility, with the strongest record for securing graduate level jobs for students from lower-participation backgrounds
- has an employability rate of 95% based on number of St Mark & St John graduates going into work six months after completing their studies – ranking the university 12th in England for employability; 18th in the UK and number one in Devon and Cornwall for employability
- fourth in the Times University Guide 2014 for UK student satisfaction including teaching quality; sixth in most recent National Student Survey
