FdSc Marine Biology with Oceanography

Level 5 • Part-time • Cornwall College Newquay


The United Nations has proclaimed 2021-2030 to be the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. Higher Education must now produce science graduates capable of realising the ambitious goals of this framework. These graduates must be able to grasp the global scope and timeliness of the issues at hand, to undertake the science required that will provide answers to questions as they arise, then convey these faithfully and articulately to whichever audience needs to hear them. You will be starting a journey on a marine programme like no other. To our knowledge, no other degree programme in the UK has embedded the Ocean Literacy programme promoted by UNESCO to this extent. We can find no other course that has based a first-year module around this programme by using the seven ocean literacy principles as Assessed Learning Outcomes. You will be embarking on a programme of study which embeds science communication. In each year of the full time programme, which you will be following over a three year span, there is a specific module where science communication and education/interpretation/outreach are taught, and it forms part of the assessment. In addition, other modules have learning outcomes that make the dissemination of marine scientific knowledge a core attribute. In your second and third year subjects you will engage with a suite of three 20-credit modules that are heavily active and field-based. You will collect data, maintain equipment and publish recordings in an approach that is designed to be as practical as possible, with repeated attempts at activities that then embed them with your applied skillset. These modules cover biological, chemical and physical oceanography, thereby equipping you with skillset to become technicians in these fields, or well prepared to gain higher level qualifications to enable research-related careers. You will be undertaking a module that cultivates your sense of entrepreneurship. This module teaches you the past achievements in marine resource use, allows you to develop your GIS skills in mapping the present marine resource use from a marine spatial planning perspective and then explore new products from marine resources – including learning about how these could be marketed. You will be based in a fantastic rural campus in the heart of Newquay, with a small, family feel. The staff are research active and bring that expertise to the class. We often encourage students who write exceptional and publishable project reports to co-write their work for scientific publication, with them as the lead author. You will be 10-30 minutes’ walk from a range of north Cornish coast habitats, a dive school with a range of dive courses on offer, a local and very active marine conservation group, a research-equipped vessel for coastal work and you will be 45 minutes’ drive from an additional range of south Cornish coast habitats. You will be four hours’ travel from the world-famous biodiversity hotspot of the Isles of Scilly, a location for which a residential fieldtrip could be based. There are a number of marine protected areas on your doorstep in which to learn your subject area, including one on your doorstep – Newquay and the Gannel Marine Conservation Zone. Finally, we have strong links with local conservation and marine organisations to develop your work-related experience, which is a very strong thread through the programme.

Horticulture & Landscape Operative Intermediate Apprenticeship

Level 2 • Work-based • Bicton College


Horticulture and Landscape Operatives can be employed to work in public parks and gardens, green spaces and historic gardens, private gardens and estates or in production nurseries and retail outlets. Many businesses will be specialised in their activities; such as grounds maintenance (soft-landscape) or landscape construction (hard-landscape). Soft- landscaping includes the establishment and maintenance of plants and cultivated areas. Hard-landscaping includes establishment of hard surfaces and structures in addition to the establishment of plants in cultivated areas. The distinct nature of these two specialisms means very few businesses can offer the full breadth of skills and therefore two options are available for this occupation; horticulture and landscape construction. The employment area will dictate the option pursued. Work is generally based outside and undertaken throughout the year, so apprentices will frequently work outside in all weathers. Often people new to the industry will start in a ‘hands-on’ role covering a range of practical tasks, with specialist skills being learnt through progression. A wide range of machinery and tools are used and additional training may be required depending on the nature of the works undertaken. Working and learning in the horticulture and landscape industries is rewarding, offers a diverse range of employment opportunities and includes a range of skills that are transferrable into many other industries. While learning the practical side of Horticulture with your employer, you will also be required to attend college on a block release programme. While studying at Bicton College you can take advantage of the College’s estate, which houses an arboretum with veteran and specimen trees, grounds, gardens Inc. a walled garden, glasshouses, growing tunnels and over 200 acres of extensive parklands with plenty of opportunities for you to develop your Horticulture skills.

FdSc Marine Biology with Oceanography

Level 5 • Full-time • Cornwall College Newquay


The United Nations has proclaimed 2021-2030 to be the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development. Higher Education must now produce science graduates capable of realising the ambitious goals of this framework. These graduates must be able to grasp the global scope and timeliness of the issues at hand, to undertake the science required that will provide answers to questions as they arise, then convey these faithfully and articulately to whichever audience needs to hear them. You will be starting a journey on a marine programme like no other. To our knowledge, no other degree programme in the UK has embedded the Ocean Literacy programme promoted by UNESCO to this extent. We can find no other course that has based a first-year module around this programme by using the seven ocean literacy principles as Assessed Learning Outcomes. You will be embarking on a programme of study which embeds science communication. In each year, there is a specific module where science communication and education/interpretation/outreach are taught, and it forms part of the assessment. In addition, other modules have learning outcomes that make the dissemination of marine scientific knowledge a core attribute. In your second-year subjects you will engage with a suite of three 20-credit modules that are heavily active and field-based. You will collect data, maintain equipment and publish recordings in an approach that is designed to be as practical as possible, with repeated attempts at activities that then embed them with your applied skillset. These modules cover biological, chemical and physical oceanography, thereby equipping you with skillset to become technicians in these fields, or well prepared to gain higher level qualifications to enable research-related careers. You will be undertaking a module that cultivates your sense of entrepreneurship. This module teaches you the past achievements in marine resource use, allows you to develop your GIS skills in mapping the present marine resource use from a marine spatial planning perspective and then explore new products from marine resources – including learning about how these could be marketed. You will be based in a fantastic rural campus in the heart of Newquay, with a small, family feel. The staff are research active and bring that expertise to the class. We often encourage students who write exceptional and publishable project reports to co-write their work for scientific publication, with them as the lead author. You will be 10-30 minutes’ walk from a range of north Cornish coast habitats, a dive school with a range of dive courses on offer, a local and very active marine conservation group, a research-equipped vessel for coastal work and you will be 45 minutes’ drive from an additional range of south Cornish coast habitats. You will be four hours’ travel from the world-famous biodiversity hotspot of the Isles of Scilly, a location for which a residential fieldtrip could be based. There are a number of marine protected areas on your doorstep in which to learn your subject area, including one on your doorstep – Newquay and the Gannel Marine Conservation Zone. Finally, we have strong links with local conservation and marine organisations to develop your work-related experience, which is a very strong thread through the programme.

What our students say: "This year so far at Cornwall College has been more intriguing than the last. We now have our own ejection seat to work on and we are able to put our theory learning into some practical work which gives us all a clearer insight into the aircraft industry and what it would be like to work on a genuine aircraft. Our class and the Serco apprentices had a trip out to Newquay airport, where we were able to see aircraft in person and have a better understanding of the aircraft world, if we had any questions all we had to do was ask and David or Paul would be to help us understand and clearly see how all parts are used inside and outside the aircraft." - George Besford Level 2 Aircraft Maintenance What our tutors say (blog extract): 'The last few weeks has seen some exciting additions to the practical side of our Aeronautical Engineering programme. Firstly, we took delivery of a Martin-Baker Mk2 ejection seat which saw service in a Canberra T22 aircraft. This seat is deactivated but is 95% complete and will see a full restoration courtesy of our Level 3 Aero students. This will help them gain experience with stripping, servicing and reassembling aircraft related mechanical components. The seat’s new home is our new Aero practical area that sits within the main Brunel workshops. This area contains many aircraft components that our students have already put to use this week by practicing their wire locking skills. Secondly, we have moved our Rolls Royce Viper turbo jet engine from its temporary home at Newquay Airport and it is now on display in the Brunel foyer. This engine was fitted to our Jet Provost aircraft which remains at Newquay. The students have already enjoyed looking over the engine and in time, they will be starting to strip and recondition various components from it. The engine will also help greatly in the teaching of jet propulsion theory. Finally, the Level 3 full-time and apprentice students spent a day at the Cornwall Aviation Heritage Centre at Newquay, touring the Centre and carrying out control cable maintenance tasks that are required for their PEOs. These tasks were carried out on the Centre’s Percival Pembroke aircraft. We hope to carry out more visits in the new year and strengthen the close relationship we already have formed with the Centre.' - Paul Case
