Welcome...

...to the start of your creative career. 
Welcome to Falmouth University's 2014 interactive undergraduate prospectus. We are proud to be at the edge; breaking new ground in creative education, providing 
our students with unrivalled industry opportunities and producing highly employable graduates that lead the way.

Set apart from the urban sprawl, we think differently. As part of 
a vibrant community of thinkers, makers and doers, our unique location and approach inform everything we do. From the £100 million investment we’ve made in our world-class facilities since 2004, to the 50 international partnerships we’ve forged across 28 countries on four continents, from our connections with industry which have led 
to an employment rate 15% higher than the national average, to our reputation built on 100 years of experience, it’s all about making sure our students get the best university experience possible. And it’s working. In 2013, 10,000 students voted Falmouth in the top three in a Which? University poll of the most creative universities in the UK.

At a time when value is paramount we want everyone who studies with us to leave with more than a degree; we want them to graduate with the confidence, connections and courage to make their mark.

Our courses* in art, design, media, performance and writing are widely known for inspiring our students to collaborate, create and think ambitiously, drawing on and feeding the edge we have, so they graduate ahead of the curve.

These pages will give you a taste of what we’re all about, but the best way to discover it is to come and see for yourself.

On a global scale

Falmouth’s outward-looking stance has made it a popular choice for international students and the University regularly welcomes students, academics and professionals from all over the world – from India to the USA, Japan to Norway. We also run numerous study trips and exchange programmes abroad.

Open to all

Falmouth University greets students from all walks of life. Whether you’re:

  • Finishing school or college
  • Considering a career change
  • Looking to improve your academic qualifications
  • Looking to add a qualification to your work experience
  • The first person in your family thinking about going to university
  • From another country and wanting to study in the UK
  • From a minority background, a mature student, identify as LGBT or have a disability
  • Experiencing mobility, sensory or learning disabilities and want to study at a welcoming university with a high level of support…

… we’d love to hear from you, whatever your qualifications and the route you’ve taken.
