Marine Science

Cornwall’s college of the ocean…

We are located in the heart of one of the most biologically diverse marine regions in the world. With rocky shores, mudflats, maerl and seagrass beds and a coastline that supports internationally important marine wildlife. There really is no better place to turn your passion for the ocean into a career. We offer specialist full-time courses for those leaving school as well as a foundation degree route in partnership with the University of Plymouth.
