Cornwall, England's poorest county, looks set to gain a£50m university for up to 5,000 students, which should be funded through European regeneration grants.

It is hoped that the Combined Universities in Cornwall project, set up by Falmouth College of Arts, Plymouth University and Exeter University, will stem the flow of youngsters out of Cornwall and inspire spin-off business ventures.

In 1998 KPMG, the professional services firm, was commissioned to assess demand for the university and reported that an extra 6,000 places could be filled.

The university would serve as a hub to existing further education colleges in Cornwall.
