Autumn is here and that can mean only one thing: we are one month in to our new academic year and things are going swimmingly! The start of term was once again kicked off with everything from team-building days to welcome new students to music concerts performed by our wonderful alumni.

A new year has also introduced our brand new 2020 FE prospectuses, which are sporting a great new look as well as new courses! You can pick up your copy at either campus during an Open Event or you can download one now from our website.

If you're interested in joining the College and sharing in its successes, then come along to our first Open Events of the year at Truro and Penwith Colleges on Saturday 2 November or Thursday 7 November respectively. It's the perfect opportunity to come and tour the campus, speak to staff and get a sneak peek as to what life as a student at Truro and Penwith College is like.
