University of St Mark & St John



We are a small, values based university where everyone works together to help students achieve their full potential. Our staff know all their students by name, class sizes are small with contact hours high and students are supported to be the very best they can be.

We are ranked top in the UK for Social Mobility 2014 and have been awarded the Social Enterprise Mark.

With a £20 million investment into our campus, we offer a safe and friendly environment with everything in one place. Recent developments include library refurbishments, with a social learning space, improvements to the sport science lab and a new Journalism and Media Centre.
