The Department of Media at Falmouth has earned a national reputation for developing creative talent – and for good reason. In an industry with a notoriously voracious appetite, we’re committed to helping our students achieve a deeper intellectual, creative and emotional understanding of media in all its forms, priming them to stand out from the crowd.

Our approach to teaching encourages high energy, courage and innovation, sculpting students into accomplished, skilled professionals ready to excel in a competitive marketplace. In a close-knit department boasting a wide range of specialisms, our students foster interdisciplinary collaborations from the start – both within the Media family and across the University’s creative community.

Falmouth was one of the first institutions in the UK to be recognised as a Skillset Media Academy and we continue to lead the way in media education. Our media buildings are packed with the latest in software and kit, and we are constantly updating resources to ensure our students are industry ready – from television and radio studios to photo studios, darkrooms, animation studios, digital post-production studios and even a cinema. Our experienced academic and technical staff are strongly networked within the industry and our active links with leading regional and national media institutions, including galleries, museums, broadcasters, publishers, production companies and film studios, reflect our dedication to preparing students for successful media careers.
