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...
The beach is always my first choice in summer and the Poly arts cinema is good for a rainy Cornish afternoon.
BA(Hons) Fine Art
What I liked most about Falmouth was the way it offered a bit of everything - you could walk into town and have everything on your doorstep, with the beach in walking distance the other way.
It's a chance to study somewhere with breathing space yet still be surrounded by art, music and culture.
