Students studying a University of Plymouth approved course have the option to become members of the University of Plymouth Students’ Union. In addition to events and activities hosted at the University Centre Truro & Penwith, students can participate in UPSU events in Plymouth.
Every student has the option to nominate a student course representative who will attend meetings to represent the views of students and relay feedback to the group. Student reps are also responsible for arranging social activities, volunteering and overseeing the running of the clubs and societies.
Students can get involved in the rich social, cultural and sports scenes at the University Centre by participating in a wide variety of events and activities hosted across the Truro and Penwith campuses.
Students can also contribute to the University Centre’s future by becoming part of the University of Plymouth Students’ Union. Plymouth University supports a wide range of student-led clubs and societies which help bring people together around all manner of specialist interests, hobbies or events. They are an excellent way to meet like-minded students and make friends.
Student representatives are a vital link between students and the University Centre, representing their views as well as arranging social activities.
There is also the opportunity to join the Student Ambassador Scheme, where students get paid to be involved with a variety of University Centre and community events. This is a great way for students to practice new skills such as public speaking, organization, signposting and social skills. The scheme gives access to free training courses to build CVs and confidence, while giving learners the chance to experience working with a dynamic and enthusiastic team.
Cornwall is a surfer’s paradise, with miles of beautiful coastline and plenty of untouched beaches. Students can enjoy culinary delights across the county including the famous Cornish pasty and afternoon tea with Cornish clotted cream. Celebrity chefs Nathan Outlaw, Michael Cains, Paul Ainsworth and Rick Stein maintain prestigious restaurants in the region.
Students will be able to access plenty of unique cultural experiences during their time there, such as the Eden Project and the Tate Gallery at St Ives, as well as theatres like the open air Minack Theatre that overlooks the sea. Venues like the Hall for Cornwall and Princess Pavilion host well known performers all year round, while castles, museums and seal sanctuaries can also be discovered here.
Students will always have something to do in the evening due to the wealth of cinemas, bars, restaurants, country pubs and clubs across Truro and Penzance.
Festivals throughout the year offer something for everyone, including Boardmasters, Tunes in the Dunes, The Wyldes, Little Orchard Cider and Music Festival, Eden Sessions, Falmouth Week and the Cornwall Film Festival.
