About St Mary's University, Twickenham

St Mary’s University is a publicly funded, formally Roman Catholic education institution situated in Twickenham, London. This university is best known for the impressive selection of sport and wellbeing degrees that they have on offer, but applicants can also expect to find degrees based on Catholic Education. The Twickenham campus is smaller than that of most other universities that can be found in and around London, and for that reason could be more suited to that learner which truly excels in an environment that isn’t excessively crowded, and where they can consult knowledgeable and experienced tutors easily without long waiting times.
