Student testimonials

Gerri Gilles

“I chose Marjon because I felt at home, it’s such a small, inclusive place. I’m in my fifties and I thought I was going to be too old, and I was worried I wouldn’t fit in. It wasn’t like that at all, it doesn’t matter how old you are. Everyone has been really welcoming.”

BSc (Hons) Forensic Investigation student

David Bray

“After 19 years in the Royal Air Force I took the plunge and gave up a well-paid job to seek a more creative career. I thoroughly enjoyed my three years at Marjon. Yes, it was hard to return to education, but the support for ex-military and mature students at the university is above and beyond.”

BA (Hons) Journalism graduate

Matt Callow

“I got a job as a sports coach when I left school. I enjoyed that for a couple of years but when my friends started getting mortgages I knew the finances weren’t there for me to do that. I want a career in teaching or physical education and so I came to Marjon to open up more options for the future.”

BA (Hons) Primary Education graduate

Alex Green

“My sister studied at Marjon and my Dad too. I’d always felt at home there, people smiling at you in the corridors and all that. I was a little bit lost before I started at Marjon. I would never have thought I’d graduate with a first and go on to get a job straight way. I do just love it there.”

How do I apply?

If you’re a first-time student you’ll be an undergraduate and you apply to us through Clearing. To see which undergraduate courses are available and to express an interest please see our Clearing page.

If you’re returning to university as a postgraduate student then please see our list of postgraduate courses available in Sept 2021.

When should I apply?

We recommend you apply as soon as possible. This is because some courses will run out of places, sometimes we’ll need to interview you, and we’ll check your references, so it’s best to apply soon. Our term starts on 20 September 2021.

Will I get in?

Students come with different backgrounds and experience so we always look at the whole person and the context of their situation to spot the best in people. Students here have always been and will always be more than the sum of their grades. We know that if you find the university that fits, then your academic talents will thrive.

Will I be ready?

We’re running a new pre-enrolment online study skills programme to get you study-ready for September so that all applicants have access to online activities and live study skills sessions

There are three study skills sessions for undergraduate applicants: 1. Returning to learning, 2. What to expect from your studies and 3. How to excel at your studies. For postgraduate applicants there will be a session about transition to postgraduate study. 

In addition to prepare for your course you'll be invited to online live events with your new course mates. These typically include mini lectures, videos, presentations and break out discussions.

Will I get accommodation?

We have some accommodation on campus, and we recommend you apply as you soon as you have an offer from us.
