Plymouth Marjon University (St Mark & St John) sits on a green and spacious campus, with world-class facilities, in a spectacular part of the world. Here, students build strong working relationships with a network of supporters, from their Personal Development Tutor, to their lecturers to the Student Union, and through this supportive community, they achieve more than they ever thought possible.
This course allows me to develop my practice through working collaboratively with lecturers, placement mentors and like-minded peers. I have enjoyed being able to visit a variety of Early Years settings too. The lecturers have supported me to develop skills of critical and reflective thinking and I've gained confidence in my Early Years practice.
I've made new lifelong friendships and know they will be a source of support and knowledge throughout my Early Years career.

The lectures are insightful and now I find myself questioning the dominant discourse and finding my own narrative. I have enjoyed the challenges of this course and the opportunities it has provided me to expand my knowledge.
