Infomation for students at Penryn Campus

Welcome back!

We know that the last academic year was tough, with much less face-to-face teaching and social interaction than expected. You may not have been able to come to campus at all.

In 2021/22, we’re expecting the majority of academic colleagues to be on campus to deliver in-person teaching, whilst recognising this may have to be adjusted in line with the Government regulations in place at the time. Building on our experience of adapting our teaching over the last year and through listening to your feedback, we have developed an enhanced, blended approach to support face-to-face teaching and learning. This takes some of the best aspects of teaching that students said they really enjoyed last year to provide more flexible learning activities, such as lecture material that is also available online to watch at your own pace to complement on campus sessions.

These pages will provide you with everything you need to reconnect you to our friendly, inclusive and supportive community this autumn and into 2022.

Welcome back from your Students’ Union!

We can’t wait to welcome you back with a selection of activities for an on-campus experience during Welcome Week (13-17 September 2021). So be sure to get involved, find out more about what we do and check out our online and in-person events throughout the Welcome period and beyond. Find out more on our website.
