Student Profile(s)


The calibre of teaching, friendliness and approachability of the staff, and the ability to get out and apply what has been taught in a variety of locations makes studying in Cornwall great. One of the most valuable aspects of the programme is the amount of exposure we get to people who have been - or still are - in the industry. I’m learning all the fundamental skills needed to start a career as a surveyor, whilst covering a wide selection of areas which all link together to help create a portfolio of skills that can be applied in many areas of the industry.
