Courses for international students


International students can join any of our courses. We notice that some of our courses tend to attract more international interest than others - we talk about these a little more below. See also our English language requirements for incoming students.

Undergraduate international students apply through UCAS and Postgraduate international students can apply direct.  If you have any questions about applying to the University as an international student, you can email


Professional excellence

 With 89% of our students confirming that studying with us has helped them build their confidence, it’s little wonder that our business courses are so popular. International students come to us to improve their business skills across the board on our Executive MBA and BSc (Hons) Business courses. The courses involve a mixture of academic and vocational perspectives, seminars, lectures and focused study groups. And it’s all tailored to each student’s individual goals and aspirations.


Outstanding teaching

We were the UK’s very first teacher training institution, and the University has more recently been voted best for teacher education in the South West. It’s this educational pedigree that has international students coming to us for teacher training that will put them at the top of their game. A new education course for international students is BA (Hons) Community Development and Education and our spectacular location between coast and countryside in sunny South Devon attracts international students to our BA (Hons) Outdoor Adventure Education course.

Hands-on training

In addition to being so close to Plymouth’s main hospital, the extensive health education facilities at the Plymouth Marjon University comprise on-site clinics, laboratories, therapy resource rooms and plenty more. Broad curriculums and access to state-of-the-art equipment are equally critical to maintaining our high levels of student satisfaction. Popular options are our M.Ost Osteopathy, BSc (Hons) Speech & Language Therapy, BSc (Hons) Sport Therapy and MPH Public Health courses.


Unbeatable facilities

According to the National Student Survey, our university sports facilities have been voted the 4th best in the UK. And these facilities are available to all of our students throughout their time with us, and beyond. Explore our BA (Hons) Sport Coaching, BA (Hons) Sport Development and Coaching, BSc (Hons) Sport & Exercise Sciences and BSc (Hons) Strength & Conditioning to find out what attracts some of the world’s most ambitious athletes to the Plymouth Marjon University.
