The Interview Session

The session begins with a campus tour, led by a student ambassador. This gives you the opportunity to see our excellent facilities and to hear about life as a Marjon student. This is followed by an informal information session in which the programme Leader will explain the course in detail, looking at the aims, structure and delivery. The placement elements will be discussed. This session provides you with an opportunity to meet other candidates and to ask as many questions as you like as it is important that you decide that this is the right course for you.
