We visit schools and colleges, as well as offering on-campus events to enable students to work with our academics and cutting-edge facilities. 

Discover Days

Discover Days enable post-16 students (Years 12 & 13 and access students) to get hands-on and interactive understanding of a given subject area and a feel for university life.

Marjon Summer School 2024

July 2024 - dates to be confirmed

This exciting project is designed for students in Year 12 and will take place at Plymouth Marjon University.

Marjon Summer School is a FREE opportunity for students to discover what it is like to study courses which fall under our Education, Communities & Children umbrella at university level. This programme will be led by academic staff, members of the School & College Liaison Team and Student Ambassadors. 

All meals and accommodation will be provided free of charge, and there is a travel bursary available to assist with transportation costs. 

We’ll run pre-UCAS workshops on student finance and personal statement writing, so that students are prepared should they wish to apply to Higher Education. 

Participants will also work with current Marjon students and Student Ambassadors, giving them a chance to discover the social side of university life through fun group activities. 

Please email us if you have any questions on and find out more on our Summer School page.


Open to students who are heading towards the end of their secondary and A-level education, our bespoke workshops cover everything from writing a sparkling personal statement to transitioning to higher education with confidence.

Our workshops give students an informative, yet interactive, experience. They will learn how, why, and when to apply for university, but the workshops are also designed to calm nerves, as well as explore the benefits of going to university.

Our workshops support your students through their next educational steps. It’s true that many students face barriers to higher education, and we’re here to make sure they can be overcome. Sessions will be delivered online either live or pre-recorded with a live Q&A option.

We are open to customising the workshops, working with teachers, to ensure that the sessions will be the most impactful they can be. Typical workshop topics include:

  • Confidence-building for higher education
  • UCAS applications
  • Personal statement writing
  • Study skills
  • Student funding applications and budgeting
  • Student life
  • Stress management
