Plymouth Marjon University is located in Derriford, just a few miles north of Plymouth in beautiful South West England. Plymouth is a fascinating city with plenty to discover. Offering the unique combination of craggy coastlines, beautiful beaches and rolling moors, it’s a great position from which to explore the rest of the South West - and beyond. The University campus is located to the north of the city, but connections in and out are straightforward.
My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
