Open Evening draws in crowds of prospective students
Cornwall College Saltash welcomed crowds of prospective students
to its new higher education centre recently (April 25) when
it held a special university level open evening.
Attendees came from both South East Cornwall and Devon, and
were able to get a feel for student life. They met staff and
students, and learnt about the many new courses available
at Saltash. Some visitors also took advantage of an exclusive
tour of the College's outstanding new higher education
centre and specialist learning facilities.
Steve Warnes, Head of Cornwall College Saltash, said: "It
was great to see so many people turn out for the event and
take an interest in the courses available here at the College.
The Open Evening was very informal and students who were interested
in studying a degree locally, but were unsure about their
options, were able to speak to one of our friendly experts
to help put their minds at ease."
Cornwall College Saltash can offer specialist degree courses,
approved by the University of Plymouth, in Business, Social
Care, Early Years and IT. Many of the courses are offered
on a full-time and part-time basis to fit around work and
The open evening took place in the College's new flagship
higher education centre, the Hamoaze Building, which features
excellent teaching facilities with four new classrooms, meeting,
tutorial and staff rooms and boasts state-of-the-art equipment
including interactive whiteboards and digital projectors and
a social area with wi-fi access.
Steve added: "The new Higher Education facilities
are part of a wider investment programme at Cornwall College,
part of the Combined Universities in Cornwall initiative (CUC)."
The CUC has received investment from Objective One through
the European Regional Development Fund, which has brought
millions of pounds of investment to the College's seven campus
sites. This has helped to ensure that students experience
the best quality learning environment while studying at the
College experts shared valuable advice on tuition fees and
the benefits of studying locally, as well as being able to
explore various career options after college.
John Latham, Principal of Cornwall College, said: "These
Open Evenings are so important; they give a real insight of
what courses are available to young people and adults who
may wish to stay local and study for a university level course.
Our specialist facilities are fantastic and our staff are
highly skilled in their field. It's important for prospective
students to see this, first hand."
