  • Our courses are specifically designed for adults looking to return to study

Gemma secured a place at university studying occupational therapy following her Access to Science course at the College. She also found a part time role working within the NHS.

" I feel proud to have achieved the grades I did and feel confident that this has helped prepare me in the transition to Uni. I made some fab friends too!

You need to be able to devote your time and effort to this course as it is full on and a lot can be required, however, I managed to complete this whilst juggling a part time job, boyfriend and friends. It is all achievable! The tutors are super supportive and I could not have done it without them. We were all like a little access family."

"Before the pandemic i was a team leader cutting trees around powerlines but since Covid-19 I have been thinking more about my future. I've always been good with numbers and wanted to open new doors for myself for a more academic future as a maths teacher. I chose to study Access to HE Science: Maths and Engineering course to gain the qualifications I needed to study at university level. During my one year course I have achieved 18 distinctions and i need 15 for university. Thanks to Cornwall College Camborne and their well trained staff for providing the mathematics course to kick-start my new career, I'm off to study Secondary Mathematics with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) at University of the West of England!"
