The University has its origins dated back to 1840 and is recognised as the oldest teacher training college in the UK. In current times the University has a diverse portfolio of courses and you may also notice that it is also known by many people as Marjon. You may see our more modern logo featured both on campus and on our website and promotional materials.
With just over 4,000 students, the University prides itself on being a small enough institution to give a very high level of support to all of its students.
International students are welcome to apply for any of the University's Undergraduate, Postgraduate and other professional development programmes.
We also offer a great range of preparation programmes such as the International Foundation Programme and Academic English Preparation Courses for international students as well as a range of professionally relevant courses at Undergraduate and Postgraduate level to ensure students have the best chance of employment success. Many programmes also offer a period of work placement or work experience.
The University prides itself on being part of the Erasmus programme and welcomes interest from European institutions who may like to partner with us. The University also actively encourages its students to participate in the programme. The University also offers opportunities for its students to participate in study abroad outside of the EU and also welcomes study abroad students from all over the world.
We have worked with overseas partners for over thirty years through consultancy, short courses and through offering diploma and degree programmes in partnership with other education institutions.
The University currently has partnerships in Greece, Iraq, Malaysia, Mexico, USA and Vietnam in subjects including Management, English Language Teaching and Speech and Language Sciences and in addition the University’s Centre for International Language Teacher Education (CILTE) specialises in the delivery of high quality training both in country and overseas.
The University provides pre-degree course preparation for both undergraduate and postgraduates programmes. The pre-degree courses are open to all students wishing to improve their language and academic skills in preparation for a degree programme at the University. Find out more about International University Foundation Programme, Pre-Masters and a variety of Pre-Sessional English courses.
International students can apply either directly or through UCAS (for Undergraduate students). To assist in making an application it is useful to look at the Information for your Country section of the website to give you an initial indication of whether your qualifications meet the entry requirements for the course you are interested in.
To download an application form and to give you further support with making your application, you can find further information in our International Application Process section (click here).
University life can bring personal and academic challenges, so we intend to make sure you are fully supported throughout your time here. The University of Mark & St John offers an extensive network of information, advice and guidance.
The International Office works closely with Student Support, Marjon Student Union, the Chaplaincy, the Library, Media Services and with academics to ensure that all international students have the support they need during their time here.
