Combined Universities in Cornwall

cuc-logoWhat is CUC?

A partnership of four different universities and colleges, Combined Universities in Cornwall (CUC), is working together to help and provide more students with the opportunity to study in the dreamy Cornwall region. It will provide many students and people to use higher level education for growing business and allow communities to thrive more. Because of the partnership, it is only logical that all local universities will get a whole lot better. All four universities working together will achieve greater impact on the communities, students and their minds than a single university alone.

Why CUC is the best thing that could happen?

Due to a variety of each single partner, each university and college brings something unique to CUC, and that can only offer more choices to the businesses and people of Cornwall. The biggest achievement of this great partnership so far has been £260 million pounds drawn from the UK Government and the European Commission to help and transform education at a higher level. Moreover, this could only be done and achieved by proper planning and partnership. The Steering Group is managing all the initiatives through various meetings per term.
