“When I looked at Penwith college, I instantly knew it was where I wanted to be. The journey into Penzance is the highlight to my day and sets me up with the beautiful view of the sea and at Michaels mount. That's something I could never take for granted”

what you'll find as a student
There is no such thing as a typical day for our University level students. Many arrive on campus at either Penzance or Truro and enjoy a morning coffee with friends before grabbing a pastry and heading to lectures or seminars.
Private study areas and the Learning Resource Centre are the perfect places for serious studies and lunchtimes can be spent a variety of spots around both the campuses.
You can take advantage of the award-winning Health, Wellbeing and Sport programme. Free to all students, it includes bespoke fitness advice and a wide selection of weekly activities.
Students can also visit both the dedicated student support advisor and careers and employability advisor for assistance with student finance, job applications and additional help.
