Truro College Thursday Open Evening

Join us on Thursday 09 January, meet the staff, tour the campus and find out about life as a student at one of the best colleges in the country.

Attending an Open Event is a great opportunity to explore the campus, see our specialist facilities and speak to our teaching staff. We are here to answer any questions that you might have and help you to make an application.


What To Expect

There is a lot to see and do at an Open Event, so we will provide you with an event guide when you arrive which will help you find your way around campus. Each course will have a dedicated location on the campus, so we recommend that you choose a selection of courses that you are interested in from your guide, and head over to those locations for more details. When you arrive at your destination, our friendly team of tutors and staff will be waiting to give you more information about the course and help with any queries you may have.

There will be fantastic activities and experiences to take part in around the campus to give you an understanding of the outstanding facilities and opportunities that are available. Make sure you take full advantage of these workshops and informative talks throughout the event.

You will also have the opportunity to speak to other departments at the College, including Student Services, Careers, Enrichment and more.

If you’re already interested in joining our College, you can visit our Application Station where staff will be able to help you make an application for a course. You can also apply online at a later date if you need more time to go through your options.

Be sure to pick up as much information as you can. There will be a lot to take in during the event, so taking some information away with you will make your discussions at home a lot easier. Grab a prospectus and other literature before you leave and make notes on your event guide while you talk with members of staff.

Open Evening Talks

Join us for Information Talks throughout the Open Evening that will help you discover more about life at Truro College. You can book a place on one or more of the talks when completing a registration form for the open event.

At 5.30pm the Principal, Martin Tucker, will give a general talk to prospective students.

At 6.15pm you can explore Apprenticeships as our expert team talk you through the quality careers available with some of Cornwall’s top employers in over 30 Apprenticeship programmes.

At 7pm you can hear about the support available to you as a student including pastoral support, academic support, the role of the tutor, financial support, counselling, mental health support, careers support, enrichment and our health and wellbeing offer.

The Open Evening will continue as usual alongside these talks for you to explore the campus, meet tutors, ask your questions and explore state-of-the-art facilities before submitting your College application.
