My Story: 

Thalia’s Applied Science course has given her the start she needed to progress in her studies and get closer to her chosen career, which is working on forensic excavation sites. 

She said: “I made lots of friends on the course as there were lots of opportunities for group work, it was really nice to meet other people. 

“Truro College is great because you get to meet new people, you get a lot of extra help and there are lots of people to support you. The staff were really nice and really helpful. 

Thalia is now moving on to studying Forensic Science with Archaeology at Exeter University. “I’m hoping to be able to work on excavation sites in forensic analysis after university.”
