Student testimonials

Chloe Walker, 1st year, BA (Hons) Physical Education.

“We learn through practicals and the thing I like most about Marjon is that everyone knows everyone, it helped me to find my feet and develop as an individual.”



Geoffery Gulzar, 3rd year, BA (Hons) Sport Coaching.

“The facilities for sports are second to none. Studying on a Sports degree allows us to work with the latest equipment with guidance from experts in the sports field.”


Beau Bromham, 1st year, BSc (Hons) Strength & Conditioning.

“I like how hands on you’re able to get with all the equipment in the labs. I feel the mixture of practical assignments and presentations is really going to help me out there in the real world.”


Maddy Hopson, 3rd year, BA (Hons) Sport Development.

“Sport has become my passion and Marjon has given me the chance to study this. They have worked alongside and supported me with my transition into university life with my disability. I love doing things people said I wouldn't be able to do!”

Plymouth is a buzzing student city and is close to stunning coastline, secluded beaches and the inspiring Dartmoor National Park. It's the perfect place to be!
