Virtual Summer School is a free opportunity for students to discover what it would be like to study education-related courses at the university level. This programme will be led by academic staff, as well as Student Ambassadors.
We’ll run UCAS workshops on Student Finance and personal statement writing to prepare students should they wish to apply to Higher Education.
We will also host virtual events with our current students giving you a chance to discover the social side of university life through fun group activities.
The project will run between 26th July and 13th August (multiple sessions each week) virtually via the Microsoft Teams platform.

Each session will focus on a particular area of the student journey, presented by Plymouth Marjon University staff, students and in collaboration with the organisation Next Steps South West.
Monday 12th July - Student Finance
Monday 19th July - What to expect when starting university
These sessions can be booked online here and will be delivered online through Microsoft Teams. We look forward to seeing you there!
During the summer term, we will be offering Year 7 students the opportunity to participate in a new, Marjon Scholars Programme. This programme delivered weekly over a six-week period is designed to support attainment-raising in English, whilst also introducing participants to higher education, via a range of fun and interactive small group activities. These activities will be delivered by the Marjon Outreach Team, academic colleagues and Student Ambassadors.
Participants will then be invited to join the project in Year 8 and during consecutive school years.
Marjon Scholars Programme is a pilot project and is currently available to the following schools and colleges:
