Prospective students discover University Courses

Getting a taste of the experience, prospective students gathered at Truro College’s dedicated University centre to get involved in a whole host of interesting activities at their recent Open Day.

Seeing more than 100 guests discovering what University course options are available at the Gold-rated College, the centre was buzzing with excitement as students took their first steps towards their dream careers.

Guests had the opportunity to learn more about the wide-range of courses offered, ranging in subjects from Arts, Media, Sports, Health, Social Sciences, Science, Archaeology, English, Law, Business, IT and Education & Training.

Caught in the act, guests were snapped taking part in a high-quality photography studio workshop, learning the basics of how to take the perfect portrait.

Something for everyone, there was a range of exercise challenges, ring making workshops and Tudor themed archaeology tasting sessions to give guests something to sink their teeth into.

There was also time to meet some existing students, talk to expert lecturers, tour the campus and learn more about the outstanding student support and the purpose built facilities.

Deputy Team Leader Mark Pascoe delivered several University course talks on the day and was pleased with the interest received.

Mark said: “It’s great to see so many people interested in Higher Education at the College, particularly at this stage in the year when students are looking to apply for courses.”

With a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, smaller class sizes which give more personal support and the chance to fit life around lectures, there has never been a better time to discover University courses and the options available with Truro and Penwith College.

Recently rated Gold by the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) for providing an education with the highest quality teaching, learning and outcomes, the College has enjoyed high results this year with one in four students graduating with a first-class honours degree.

Every prospective student was also presented with a FREE goody bag upon arrival, packed full of useful literature and supplies to begin their journey towards Higher Education.
