Four Cornwall colleges have joined forces in a bid to bring a university to the only British county without one. In a statement, the principals of Penwith, Truro, St Austell and Cornwall colleges said the decision of Exeter College to abandon plans to build a Penzance campus was regrettable but that all those involved in further and higher education should build on the momentum created by that initiative.

The statement added: "The important thing is for local universities and HE colleges, FE colleges and other stake holders to come together urgently to take a strategic view regarding what University for Cornwall provision is both desirable and feasible."
