Photography and Journalism
If you're interested in improving your skills or just want to know how your camera works, Falmouth Marine School offers a photography tuition group once a week.

Student Union (CCSU)
The Cornwall College Student Union is there to give students a voice. They carry out a variety of activities including raising money for charity, improving campuses, supporting local and national campaigns, organising parties and securing funding for student facilities.
Every student is automatically a member of the Student Union and it's up to you how you get involved. You may choose to become a Class Rep and be the voice of your course, or play a more active role on the SU committee itself.
