Marjon ranked first in the South West for University of the Year

Released: 26.05.22

Plymouth Marjon University has been ranked top university in the South West and 5th in the UK

The league table is based on reviews written by 35,000 students across the UK, and this year included 95 universities.

Marjon was ranked the highest university in the entire South West region for Student Life and Student Support, as well as for University of the Year, and in the top 5 in the UK across all three categories. It was also ranked 6th in the UK for Lecturers and Teaching Quality and 11th for career prospects.

The student-led approach means these awards specifically highlight those universities which are recognised by students for their exceptional experience.

Professor Rob Warner, Vice-Chancellor of Plymouth Marjon University, said: “This recognition of Marjon by our students is something I know our whole community of staff and students will be incredibly proud of. Our goal is always to put students first in all we do, and our team works so hard to listen to students and make constant improvements. I’m delighted that in these results our students have once again recognised and appreciated the community they are part of at Marjon, and I thank them wholeheartedly for their support.”

In the last WhatUni Student Choice ranking, which ran in early 2020, Marjon was also ranked highly, being rated as the top University in the South West for Courses and Lecturers, and third best in England. Marjon also currently ranks as 1st in England for Teaching Quality in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, and 1st in England for Learning Community and 2nd for Student Voice in the National Student Survey 2021.
