To be a world class University that gives creative minds inspiring futures.
Falmouth University is a specialist University operating across the Creative Industries.
Making connections and building real community and industry partnerships is how we translate brilliant ideas into successful careers.
A supportive yet challenging environment where our students and staff can break boundaries, be brave and let their entrepreneurial spirit and imagination soar.
The University is a major creative innovation hub located in Cornwall, an inspirational place with a long history of creative and cultural endeavour that is now home to one of the largest Creative Industries clusters in the UK. Founded as Falmouth School of Art in 1902, Falmouth has grown from a small art school of less than 200 students to a creative university with over 5,300 students.
Our comprehensive portfolio spans all of the creative art forms and is available at BA, MA and PhD levels. The portfolio is explicitly aligned to the size and shape of the UK’s Creative Industries, based on the UK Government Department for Culture, Media and Sport’s Annual Economic Estimates. This alignment ensures that the University produces highly employable and professionally astute graduates with the expertise to be successful in the Creative Industries, as well as the flexibility and imagination to apply their skills in the broader Creative Economy.
