Plymouth Marjon University

Student review
By a UniMatch user

This University is the best that I looked at, especially because it specialises in 3 main areas; Education, Linguistics, and Sport. I would totally recommend this uni to anyone who is at all interested in the courses on offer. It is a smaller university located on a single campus, which only makes moving between lecture easier! I've only been here for just over a week, and I already feel like I'm apart of the Marjon family already, and you do really get patriotic about the uni!

Teaching Excellence Framework Award (TEF)

TEF Silver Award

Plymouth Marjon University has scooped a Silver Award in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the new Government scheme for recognising excellent teaching at UK universities.

What do the TEF Awards mean for you?

Open Days

There’s nothing like an Open Day to get to grips with what university life looks like. Not only will you be able to explore our campus, see the accommodation, teaching and sports facilities, you can chat to academic staff and our current students too.

Throughout the day there are subject talks where you can find out more about the courses you are interested in and their entry requirements. Our friendly and experienced academics will also be on hand throughout the day to help guide you through what to expect when studying with us.

You can also find out about fees and student finance, meet our Student Union team or get advice about your application direct from our Admissions team.

If you are interested in attending one of our Open Days then you will need to book a place. Don’t worry if you are unable to make the dates you can always contact us and book a campus tour at a time that suits you.

Student Life in Plymouth

Few places in the UK can rival Plymouth. Lively, buzzing, historically fascinating: Plymouth has it all, plus the sparkling sea and the lush green moors. The single campus of the university is nestled in between the two, giving students fantastic options to explore and have fun during their downtime. Plymouth is the cultural capital of Devon and Cornwall, so there’s always something special lined up. From the gastronomic adventure of the annual Flavour Fest to the spectacular displays at the annual British Firework Championship, thousands flock to Plymouth to experience the city that you could soon call home.


Plymouth Marjon University guarantees on site accommodation to all first year applicants, top up students and postgraduate students (some conditions apply).

We have 7 halls of residence and 38 houses in our ‘student village’. Students will be allocated a single study bedroom with either an en-suite or a standard room with a wash basin and access to shared shower facilities. All students have access to shared kitchen and communal areas.

With a variety of 456 rooms ranging from £85 to £110 per week, there’s well-appointed, university-approved accommodation for everyone.

Travel information


Unlike many other universities where campuses and halls of residence sprawl all over a city, our University exists on one self-contained site. That means no rushing from place to place, relying on shaky public transport and missing lectures. No having to travel across town to catch up with your social group. It’s all here, right on your doorstep. The University encourages people to use public transport wherever possible. Staff and students can buy heavily discounted bus vouchers, and can use the George Park & Ride for free. All tickets and public transport information is available at the University's reception.
