From sunset beach barbecues, to off-the-cuff creative happenings, from a weekday surf before studying, to a weekend spent plundering vintage fairs and craft boutiques, Falmouth and Penryn have a unique vibe perfect for the creative and curious.
With a DIY mentality and a sense of creative freedom pulsing through the sister towns' cultural undercurrent, you'll find a buzzing bar scene, a vibrant mix of live gigs and a glut of events and performances on offer. All this set within a welcoming ocean-flanked town, where every street you walk down and pub you stop in you'll see someone you know.
Sound like your cup of tea? we'll don't just take our word for it. Here's what Falmouth's students have to say about living here...
Falmouth is a truly lovely place to study. It's a completely different environment to most universities - there's a diverse, friendly student population and lots of interaction between different students on different courses.
Due to the fact that Falmouth is small, the students do tend to go to the same bars and get to know each other fairly quickly. Overall the students are very open and friendly.
