A former Dean of St Mark’s once said that “At university you get a degree – at St Mark’s you get an education”. Certainly we take academic achievement seriously here, and St Mark’s students consistently achieve high results in their exams. But there is a lot more to life at St Mark’s than study; this is a fun and vibrant community, which encourages students to participate in a plethora of activities. There are plenty of activities in which to involve yourself in, whether it is on the stage or sports field, in the spheres of music, drama, through outreach to the community, or just by coming along to any or all of the College events.Learn more
