Eden Project Learning Cornwall College Duchy College

Tour the Campus

Our students come from all walks of life, creating a diverse and exciting learning environment. Many continue to work alongside their studies or have family commitments, so as well as our full-time courses, we offer flexible and part-time options for many of our programmes.

Most of our courses are based at the Eden Project, where students have the opportunity to roam the outdoor gardens, relax to birdsong in the Mediterranean Biome, or explore the tropical biome whenever they need some respite or inspiration throughout the day. For those re-locating to study with us, we have a dedicated accommodation officer who can help students find somewhere to live close-by.

Outside of study-time, there’s the beautiful county of Cornwall to explore. From its famous sandy beaches to its great gardens, cultural landscapes and picturesque towns and villages, it truly is an inspiring place to learn.
