Student Profile(s)


Studying here has been really good. The environment is nice and I like the mixture of different types of students. My course covers all the aspects of all the different types of Geology. I’ve been able to learn a broad range of skills and the field trips have been really good.

The facilities are great, there are several different types of labs, a lot of space for learning and loads of learning resources. The lecturers are always really helpful as they have an open door policy which allows you to ask them questions whenever you have any problems of concerns. They are very supportive and always there when you need them. They always reply to their emails very quickly which is really helpful.

Studying in Cornwall is very different to living in London. However it’s really nice as it’s quiet, friendly and everyone is really lovely. I also like the fact that we share the campus with Falmouth students as it means you get to mix with a lot of different people.

If I had one piece of advice for students, it would be to make the most of being at university, try new things and test out the societies.
