The snow, ice and frozen rain that hit Cornwall last week affected events up and down the county including Truro College’s planned Open Morning on Saturday March 3.

However, the college has responded quickly by announcing the date of its rescheduled open morning for Saturday, March 17, 10am – 1pm with the event maintaining all of the original activities and opportunities.

As a series of recent videos explain, open events are a chance for prospective students to go and check out the college before making any decisions. Offering the chance to talk through their options with lecturers, to take a tour of the campus and to experience some subjects first-hand, visiting the open events is a chance not to be missed.

Across the campus, students will be able to discover just how many options they have open to them. From the all-encompassing breadth of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma to the mix and match variety of A Levels to the hands on nature of vocational courses, the choices on offer are vast and exciting.

To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week the college is going all out to show students the exciting opportunities Apprenticeships offer. Stands in every building will show students the array of apprenticeships available while a talk at 11am will go into more detail about apprenticeships in general.

The college’s dedicated University Centre Fal building will also be open for students to discover a wide range of degree courses from teaching to archaeology to Silversmithing. University course talks will be running every hour from 10.30am, giving students the opportunity to meet the lecturers, talk to current students and tour the purpose-built facilities.
