Set in some of the most picturesque locations in Cornwall, Duchy College has it all. There's the beautiful moorland and countryside which dominate the campus locations, stunning beaches never more than a few miles away, main towns such as Plymouth and Truro but a short bus ride away. Then there's our success rates, over 95% of completing students gain qualifications and 90% leave with a positive destination. Many students leave with multiple qualifications.
Duchy College has a top quality standard of education with a comprehensive range of qualifications available up to degree level. We believe in learning that is fun and enjoyable. A mixture of highly qualified, full and part-time staff undertake teaching, normally in small groups, encouraging student participation and discussion.
We have a high standard of facilities, including purpose built Learning Resources Centres on both our main campus sites equipped with the latest technology (all with internet access), DVD's, leaflets and of course, books. We have several farms offering students a wide range of experience including organics, arable and dairy. We also have engineering workshops, stables, a sports hall, stabling for 56 horses, a covered horse walker, two indoor schools, one outdoor school, two horse solariums and a 10m onsite climbing tower.
Duchy College works very closely with industrial partners to offer students work placement opportunities, study visits and additional qualifications not just in Cornwall but also in Europe - Sweden, Germany, France and Ireland. These organisations are too numerous to list but include the Cornwall Wildlife Trust, China Fleet Golf and Country Club, The National Trust, BOCM Pauls, Eden Project, SWARD, Silvanus and 3D.
Nursery facilities are offered to students on both our campuses as well as at Saltash College, and are run by specialist childcare provider Flying Start who have been in business for over 20 years. Click here for more info.
We think you will find Duchy College to be a college with a difference - but don't take our word for it - come and see for yourself. Come and visit us, talk to the staff and students. We don't think you'll want to go anywhere else.
