Falmouth University is offering a range of creative courses including Game Development, Photography, Animation, Fine Art, Fashion Design, Journalism, Business and Theatre, to name just a few. Their mission is simple - to help students get a great job in the creative industries. Alongside Gold Status in Teaching Excellence (awarded in June 2017), Falmouth offers fantastic industry links and world-class facilities, set amongst the beautiful landscape of Cornwall, in South-West England.
Falmouth University is renowned worldwide for art, design, media, performance and writing. Built on over 100 years of experience, University's commitment to international students is well established and as a result, their student community is rich and diverse. 83% of their students are satisfied with Falmouth University, which ranks University 6th in the country.
Small enough to be welcoming, yet laterally focused enough to encourage creative enterprise, FM international graduates leave able to compete at a global level.
Fallmouth's students are also actively encouraged to enrich themselves overseas, through numerous exchange programmes and partnerships with international universities. They also benefit from self-initiated study trips and work placements.
Falmouth is a unique place to study. The stunning campuses, coastal location and thriving cultural and social scene combine to create an environment that, no matter what your lifestyle or interests, is inspirational, exhilarating and feels like home.
From beaches, live venues, parties, galleries and international festivals, to the 100 plus Student Union clubs and societies – there is so much to life at Falmouth. Whether you want to try water sports, ramble on the cliffs, catch a sunset or fire up a barbecue with your housemates, student living in Cornwall is pretty special.
Subtropical paradise and contemporary creative hub – both campuses in Falmouth and Penryn each create a perfect environment for inspiration. As a student you can enjoy both, with easy travel links between the two.
Rich in heritage, the grounds at the campuses blend historic subtropical planting with newly created landscapes to create visually stunning gardens and an inspirational environment to work in. At Falmouth, take time out in the peaceful and colourful Fox Rosehill Gardens, while at Penryn, explore the walled garden, fruit producing orchard, Italian garden, 18th century lime avenue and the historic rare rhododendrons.
Set within exotic gardens, the Falmouth Campus is only a short walk from the town centre and nearby Gyllyngvase Beach. Just four miles away from Falmouth town, the Penryn Campus features innovative architecture and state-of-the-art facilities.
