Those with a New Year’s resolution of studying a degree in zoology, marine conservation or surf science, are getting the opportunity to explore the courses available right on their doorstep.

Cornwall College Newquay is opening its doors to prospective students on Saturday 25th January between 10am and 3pm, with a Degree Taster Day showcasing the Wildlife Education, Animal Behaviour & Management and Zoological, Marine & Ecological Conservation courses on offer.

Lawrence Moores, who is Joint Head of Cornwall College Newquay, said the upcoming Taster event is “the perfect opportunity” to find out more about “the broad range of specialist science courses available right here in Cornwall”.

“Studying at Cornwall College Newquay gives you access to an amazing environment and incredible opportunities, including international field trips and taking advantage of our close partnerships with local businesses including Newquay Zoo, Blue Reef Aquarium, Cornwall Wildlife Trust and The Eden Project,” he continued.

“Perhaps most importantly, you can engage with our most valuable teaching resource – our team of highly qualified research-active staff.”

Cornwall College Newquay focusses on Wildlife Education, Animal Behaviour & Management, Marine Sport Science and Zoological, Marine and Ecological Conservation. It also offers diplomas for school-leavers continuing right up to foundation and full degree-level study.

Former student Brogan Pett studied both the FdSc Zoological Conservation and BSc Applied Zoology at Cornwall College Newquay.

Brogan has used the knowledge he gained studying to travel the globe pursuing his passion for wildlife and conservation. He is now working in Paraguay as an Entomology researcher and museum curator with the organisation Fundacion Para La Tierra.

“My current role as an entomologist is my dream job. Studying tropical insects and spiders is just mind-blowing and it’s something that fills you with wonder every day,” Brogan said.

“Challenging yourself is absolutely key to development and any future success you want to have and Cornwall College was challenging and interesting. The location of the campus is absolutely beautiful, the small size of the campus and classes meant I had very good relationships with my lecturers and tutor, which enables students to maximise what they gain from classes. I really can’t stress enough how much having those personable relationships at the College was to my development.”
