University Centre Open Day – Saturday

Meet the staff, tour the campus and find out about life as a student at the University Centre Truro & Penwith.

Our University Centre aims to give our Higher Education students the very best learning experience with outstanding individual support, leading to high levels of achievement and the best employment opportunities.

What To Expect

Head to our Fal Building Foyer, where our Student ambassadors and University Centre team will welcome you to the event.  During your tour of the building, you will be able to visit the Learning Centre, Nursing Simulation Suite and Media facilities.

Take full advantage of the event and have a wander around the campus. If you are a prospective Sport, Art & Design, or Engineering student make sure you add the Lynher, White and Valency buildings to your list too.

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.

Before You Go

If you’re planning to travel by car, parking for the event will be clearly signposted. Visitors are advised to arrive after 4:30pm. The College’s ANPR Parking System will be in operation and issuing fines to unregistered vehicles before this time. Any visitors arriving before 4:30pm must register their car with reception to avoid receiving a fine.

If you’re planning to travel by bus, the Langarth Park and Ride is on the main road a few minutes away from the University Centre and there are bus stops right outside the campus. To view the latest and upcoming timetables please visit the First Website.
