Postgraduate students celebrating at their graduation

Plymouth Marjon University has come first in the UK for Assessment in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) for the fourth year running. The Survey is the only UK higher education sector-wide survey to gain insight from taught postgraduate students about their learning and teaching experience. 

Every year since 2020, Marjon has been ranked the no.1 university in the UK for assessment due to the transparent and fair way in which students are assessed. Students also gave the University a 100% satisfaction rating for the quality of its education courses. 

The University has come in the UK’s top 10 for teaching and has scored an impressive position of no.12 out of 101 UK universities, bolstering Marjon’s reputation as an exceptional institution for quality learning and support. 

Professor Claire Taylor, Vice-Chancellor of Plymouth Marjon University, said:  

"I am immensely proud of the University's remarkable achievement in being recognised so highly once again. This accomplishment highlights our robust commitment to delivering a noteworthy educational experience and as we celebrate this milestone, we are inspired to continue raising the bar and shaping the future of education." 

The University has been ranked highly this month, soaring above the national average in the 2023 Graduate Outcomes Survey with 92% of Plymouth Marjon graduates already making their mark in the professional world or pursuing further studies. Marjon also came in the UK top ten universities* across five categories in this year’s National Student Survey alongside other prestigious universities such as St Andrews and Oxford. 

Rachel Bailey-Lewis, Postgraduate Student Recruitment Officer at Marjon, said: 

“These high rankings delivered by our students truly show the quality of our courses and the academic support provided by the University in our endeavour for student success. We have a great variety of programmes suited to those in the workplace, continuing study, or wanting to push their career further.”
