Marjon University Cornwall


Marjon University Cornwall is a campus in Truro of Plymouth Marjon University. Marjon University Cornwall is based in Truro at the Old Cathedral School. We offer postgraduate programmes, short courses, postgraduate research, and research support services. We believe that education can transform lives and access to high-quality university accredited continuing profession development and learning (CPDL) for educational professionals supports this transformation.

It doesn’t matter whether you are at the beginning, middle, or nearing the end of your career in education, CPDL is embedded in your professional status as a teaching assistant, teacher or education leader.

Delivering Postgraduate Professional Education in Cornwall

The facilities and resources at Marjon University Cornwall are designed to ensure that all students will engage in a higher education and collaborative professional learning experience.

All taught sessions will take place at times that support working educational professionals in being able to attend. We offer a range of taught postgraduate programmes and in-school support, and opportunities for schools, colleges, and organisations looking for staff coaching and mentoring development, to request bespoke CPDL that supports their improvement and development plans.
