Discover your confidence

Cornwall is a fantastic place to live, so why not stay and study here too?

With much smaller class sizes that allow each student plenty of one-to-one personal support from the tutors and the opportunity to fit your life around your lectures, anyone can easily discover university courses with Truro and Penwith College.

“… the college undeniably produces outstanding results.”

Today, the college has over 40 courses at both its Truro and Penwith campuses, ranging in subjects from arts, media, sports, health, social sciences, science, archaeology, English, law, business, IT and education and training.

The courses on offer are easily accessible to students of all ages and most only require a minimum of 24 to 32 UCAS points – that’s equivalent to one A level at grade D to C. Rated Gold by the Teaching Excellence Framework for providing an education with the highest quality teaching, learning and outcomes, the college undeniably produces outstanding results.

Awarded a first class honours degree in silversmithing and jewellery, mature student Alex O’Connor from Penzance certainly discovered her passion and confidence at the college.

“The course is brilliant down here,” says Alex. “We concentrate on working by hand, which is perfect as that’s what I’m passionate about. There’s nothing quite like making things by hand. I am absolutely blown away with my results. I have loved every minute of it. Being a mature student, I found it very hard to begin with, but if education is meant to change you in a fundamental way, that is what has happened to me. My confidence, understanding and skills have grown and I’m so pleased with my results.”
