MARJON STUDENT UNION
The Student Union is a charity as well as independent from the institution which means we always have the student’s best interest at heart. However, luckily we have an extremely strong partnership with our institution and we are always looking for that to grow, because when it comes down to it everyone wants the same thing for our students, to have the best time and get the most out of your university, both academically and experience wise.
