getting there and away
The Truro College campus can be reached by a number of public bus operators who will drop you off inside the College grounds before the day starts at 9.15am and pick you up at the end of the day after 4.15pm. College staff are on hand at both drop-off and pick-up times to help students.
More details about the bus pass scheme and bus routes and timetables can be found on our transport page.
Free car parking is available at the Truro campus but students must apply for a permit and conditions do apply.
Students are encouraged to take the healthy choice where possible and walk or cycle to College. The campus has cycle storage, a free cycle maintenance facility and showers for students to use.
I like the method of teaching at the College. The class sizes are small which makes learning much easier and means there’s lots of support.
