Free Explore Workshops

Find out if a course at the University Centre is for you at our free explore workshops.

Penwith Campus has been running degree level programmes for several years with many of our students having gone onto great things. Set in a beautiful tree lined campus, with modern buildings, supportive staff and small student class sizes, Penwith offers high quality teaching in a great setting. We are really keen that more people in West Penwith find out the great opportunities there are on their doorstep.

These short, fully funded Explore workshops are an ideal way for someone who is considering their future options to dip their toe back into learning and to find out whether university at Penwith College is for them.
