About our Cornwall campuses

Our Penryn Campus combines Russell Group prestige and quality, small-campus intimacy, and an environment unrivalled in the UK. Students tell us they enjoy the easy access to world-class academics, the friendly atmosphere, and the benefits of recent, large-scale investments. It is home to the Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI), which brings together state-of-the-art resources with leading academics to pioneer cutting-edge research into solutions to problems of environmental change.

The work at the ESI complements that of the University Medical School’s European Centre for Environment and Human Health, based on our Truro Campus. The Centre conducts world-class research into the interconnections between the environment and health. Specifically, its researchers investigate the health implications posed by a range of environmental threats.
