Upcoming events

Virtual Summer School

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 the 2nd and 13th of August (multiple sessions each week) virtually via the Microsoft Teams platform.

The applications are now closed; for any information, please contact

Marjon Scholars Programme

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 while also introducing participants to higher education via 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 running with the following schools and colleges:

  • Bodmin College
  • Eggbuckland
  • Hele’s School
