Course summary

Do you have the passion and potential to study one of our university-level programmes, but not the necessary qualifications to start? Our Science Gateway course is the perfect solution. Whether you are returning to education or your results weren’t quite what you hoped for, the Science Gateway provides a high-quality route into the large range of science foundation degree (FdSc) programmes at Cornwall College Newquay.Science Gateway is designed to prepare you to succeed on a foundation degree in a number of ways.It’ll help to develop your knowledge of core underpinning scientific concepts, as well as subject knowledge specifically related to your chosen subject area. With our focus on building practical skills; you’ll gain confidence and competence in both the laboratory and fieldwork. Alongside this, the development of your academic study skills will help to boost your research competencies and overall employability.You will study at our thriving Newquay campus, set against an inspirational backdrop of wild and rugged headland, sheltered coves, freshwater streams, saltmarsh and sprawling estuaries. For over 20 years, Cornwall College Newquay has inspired thousands of science graduates to make a difference, using their passion as a guide. Our small supportive group sizes and friendly experienced tutors create a family-feel that’s unlike any university experience you will have seen. Another benefit is the contact you’ll get with academic staff teaching at higher levels, ranging from formal tutorials and lessons to attendance at oral and poster presentation sessions. So, what are you waiting for? The Science Gateway programme is the ideal way to progress onto your foundation degree, knowing that you are well-prepared, not just to achieve but to excel.Following on from the Science Gateway year you may then progress onto the FdSc in Animal Behaviour and Welfare which will appeal to an animal lover like you and although it might appear similar to other courses you’ve seen, there are some key differences about studying with us that set it a world apart from others. Naturally, it focuses on the areas of animal behaviour, training, nutrition, welfare and biology. This makes it perfect for anyone interested in working in a zoo, on a farm or with companion animals. Next is our continuing 20-year-strong partnership with the Wild Planet Trust’s Newquay Zoo. Located only a stones throw from our campus, the zoo’s diverse animal collection and expert staff creates a unique form of degree study for our students. One that places employability and real-world relevance squarely at the heart of what our course is all about. It’s this unrivalled access that gives Cornwall College Newquay an edge. We put considerable emphasis on building practical skills and experience, underpinned by a strong academic and scientific core. It’s our mission to not only develop your skills in animal care, animal welfare, animal behaviour and training, but to support you through industry experience, giving you on-the-ground experience in the sector. The small size and family feel of our campus is another of our stand-out features. Unlike larger universities, you’ll find that student-teacher collaboration is commonplace at Cornwall College Newquay. We often encourage students who write exceptional project reports to work with our research-active staff who will help them see their work published under their own name. Our small community learning environment also lends itself to a more bespoke experience for our students, allowing our experienced and passionate lecturers to tailor lessons to a particular field of interest.
