The National Student Survey 2016 (NSS) reported that the University of St Mark & St John shot up the league tables achieving 100% student satisfaction in some of its courses and placing it among the UK’s top universities for student satisfaction. Marjon showed the highest percentage point increase of any university this year, rising up the rankings to be rated joint 35th out of 160 universities in the country, with 89% overall student satisfaction.
Rather than spreading lecture theatres, student unions, libraries and more over several campuses, we’ve kept it all in one place. By grouping everything on one campus, we find that students are better able to make new friends, enjoy a healthy social life and go about their day without the stresses of travel. And there’s more: our Plymouth campus is also home to a state-of-the-art sports centre housing a fully equipped gym, swimming pool, courts and climbing wall, plus there is a bar, a cafe, a central canteen and a shop. So you could go exploring in your downtime, or you could just stay right here.
There’s nothing like one-to-one time with academic staff to keep your studies on the right tracks. Our small class sizes ensure high levels of class contact and expert tuition in specialist applied subject areas. And that’s something that’s never going to change.
More than 94% of our students were in a new job or enjoying further study within six months of graduating (HESA 2014). Our industry links and partnerships help students make valuable contacts for their professional future.
Few places in the UK can rival Plymouth. Lively, buzzing, historically fascinating: Plymouth has it all, plus the sparkling sea and the lush green moors. Our single campus is nestled in between the two, giving students fantastic options to explore and have fun during their downtime. Plymouth is the cultural capital of Devon and Cornwall, so there’s always something special lined up. From the gastronomic adventure of the annual Flavour Fest to the spectacular displays at the annual British Firework Championship, thousands flock to Plymouth to experience the city that you could soon call home.
We’re firm believers that nothing brings learning home like putting it into practice. During your studies at the University of St Mark & St John, you’ll be offered extensive opportunities to demonstrate your newfound knowledge in real-life situations. Staff research projects, exciting placement opportunities, enterprise skills and international exchanges: these are all offered to our students on a regular basis. And, with our raft of student support services, we’re with you all the way.
