Cornwall College covers seven campuses across Cornwall. Each campus is small enough to foster a culture of community, while still giving students the academic and other benefits of being part of the larger group.
One of the county’s liveliest towns, Newquay is an international surfing destination, offering a wide range of pubs, clubs and restaurants. The campus is based alongside Newquay Zoo, where students are able to work closely with the zookeepers, caring and learning about the animals during their studies.
Just minutes from the city of Plymouth, the campus at Saltash is a supportive and friendly site, specialising in business, information technology, healthcare and early years. Facilities include a learning centre, hair and beauty salons, as well as a newly opened building for higher education students.
Overlooking the bay, the large campus at St Austell provides students with facilities for study, health and fitness, and socialising. These include a fitness suite, cafes, Panini bar and a restaurant, as well as a dance studio and the Keay Theatre, which hosts external acts as well as providing an ideal venue for performing arts students to practise and perform.
A horticultural college, situated in 47 hectares of countryside, provides unique facilities in horticulture enabling students to specialise in the study of garden design, crop production, floristry, conservation and veterinary nursing. The College has good links with the Eden Project and the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.
Set in acres of rolling countryside, students are well placed to study organic farming, rural business development, police studies, sport, golf studies and equine science. The campus, based near Callington in East Cornwall, provides halls of residence for its students and has a climbing tower, as well as sports pitches and a social club.
The College’s marine campus, located in the port of Falmouth, gives students opportunities to study marine science, boatbuilding and marine leisure courses. The college is the only place in Cornwall where students can gain specialist training in both traditional and new wood boatbuilding techniques as well as the latest range of composites.
