Falmouth University was founded as the Falmouth School of Art in 1902, and was formerly known as Falmouth College of Art and Design and then Falmouth College of Arts. When it was granted degree-awarding powers in 2005, the school received official university status a few years later. In 2008, University College Falmouth merged with Dartingon College of Arts. The university specializes in education for the creative industries. It offers a wide range of degree programmes. The school is located in Penryn and Falmouth, with Penryn being the larger of the two campuses. It is operated in partnership with the University of Exeter. The campuses facilitate state-of-the-art facilities and the latest equipment, in order to provide the perfect learning environment for its students. The university received TEF Gold which is awarded to institutions that consistently deliver outstanding teaching, learning and outcomes for their students. Falmouth University provides its students with the best education possible, but it goes the extra mile, by giving them guidance and advice on their future career choices. It also runs regular employability events, which have proven to be a great stepping stone into the working world. 97% of Falmouth students are in employment or further study within 6 months after graduation.
Currently, I’m following the online Master in Marketing and Digital Communications at Falmouth University and I think this is one of the best choices I have made. Since the program caters to people with job commitments, the schedule is very flexible. The teaching material is also up-to-date with the latest case studies, articles rather than only from an old textbook. I personally find it very helpful with the support from online tutors. You can always book personal tutorials if you have any questions regarding the assignments. Also, there is no exam, only 2 assignments per module, and it’s not an obligation to work in a team!!!!
It’s a great program for anyone who wants to advance Marketing skills and mindset. This course is 100% online part-time and perfect for anyone who has a job commitment and doesn’t want to relocate. Highly recommend!!!!View more
I was expecting to start a business but it’s a bit like college just this time we pay for it, the staff are helpful but some students are behind and it’s an informative class however again I was expecting to start a business not be in a college-like environment againView more
Falmouth Uni has a great range of resources including course-specific equipment such as cameras and microphones.
Personally, on my course, Music, Theatre and Entertainment Management, I was able to gain a range of experience and knowledge that will be valuable to me throughout my life in the industry.
The lectures were extremely helpful and are still available to help me now even though I have finished.
Couldn’t recommend my course more!!!
However, certain facilities around the uni could do with some extra support and updating, such as the student bar and the on-campus doctors (the uni seems to be on with this slowly though).View more
