UCP Marjon is different. You’ll find our warm and friendly atmosphere makes this a special place to study.  Academically, our University College strives for excellence.  Our National Student Survey results have placed us top ten for two of the past four years.   In the Sunday Times University Guide, we ranked amongst the top five University Colleges the past 2 years (2007, 2008).


We offer a great range of courses from Foundation Degrees & Progression Courses to Honours Degrees and Postgraduate study.  As the most experienced teacher training provider in the South West, we have been successfully training teachers since 1840, receiving praise in our Ofsted inspections, including an “outstanding” for our secondary Management and Quality Assurance.  We have excellent links with local schools and UCP Marjon is both well known and well respected.


With a £20 million investment into our campus and sports facilities, UCP Marjon offers a small, safe and friendly campus with everything you need in one place.  The campus investment will see a new sports centre, refurbished student housing and a new entrance and student centre. WiFi access is available for you to take full advantage of the free laptop you receive when you begin your undergraduate or PGCE course.

Our staff are passionate about their subjects and work hard to help students to fulfil their potential and succeed in their studies. They provide plenty of contact time in a supportive and friendly environment.

We want to ensure that you are well prepared for employment when you graduate, so we make sure that you have all the transferable skills you need, along with practical experience in relevant employment fields. We supply an excellent careers service and the most recent government statistics show that we have a 95% employability rate, among the best of any institution in the South West.

UCP Marjon has built a reputation for being ‘small and friendly’. With around 3500 students, our class sizes are small, which means tutors and fellow students will get to know you, but we are large enough to provide excellent facilities and social activities.

Located in the South west of England, Plymouth is perfectly situated to make the most of the countryside, moorland and coast.
