Irene, now a student at the University of Exeter, studied her A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Maths as well as Physics at AS Level at Truro & Penwith College.
“My time at college me massively in my preparation for University!” Irene said. “The flexibility of my timetable gave me the freedom to organise my own studying plans and I started becoming much more independent and active in my own learning.”
“The lecturers genuinely invested so much extra time and energy, and I felt very well supported, especially leading up to the final exam season.”
“One thing that really stood out about the environment at College was the feeling of being both challenged and supported to achieve my goals.”
Irene said that her courses at Truro & Penwith College was particularly enjoyable “because there was a really great environment of mutual respect and support among my classmates, regardless of diversity. Our classes were small enough that we could get to know each other really well.”
