Airport Collection Service to Cornwall campuses (Penryn and Truro)

For students travelling to our Cornwall campuses from outside the UK, you have a choice of airports from where we operate our Airport Collection Service:

  • Newquay Airport is just a 45 minute transfer to campus and is served by direct flights from Heathrow, so is a very convenient option. We will be running multiple FREE collections from Newquay on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 September 2019.
  • London Heathrow is a larger 'hub' airport, meaning many international flights land here, but the transfer time to Cornwall is considerably longer at 6 hours. We will be offering our Airport Collection Service from Heathrow on Saturday 14 September 2019 only.
