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...
I spent as much time at college painting as I could but, admittedly, a fair bit of time drinking coffee and procrastinating; the gardens are a good place for this. Also if it all gets a bit too intense with all the creative vibes in the studio you can run away to the sea for a swim.
BA(Hons) Fine Art
I lived with film students, photographers, fine artists, illustrators and creative writers. It was great.
It's a chance to study somewhere with breathing space yet still be surrounded by art, music and culture.
