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...
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.
BA(Hons) 3D Design
Falmouth is the place to be. It's a uni with a difference that's for sure. It might not have a club on every corner but we make up for that in other ways. You definitely won't be stuck in the house being bored. It's a bit like living on a permanent holiday, there's always something fun to do, come rain or shine.
BA(Hons) Creative Events Management
Cornwall gives you the space and peace to create something. Studying here is a marvellous opportunity in a truly marvellous place.
