WELCOME VICE-CHANCELLOR’S WELCOME Welcome to our new prospectus! We can never truly convey the huge amount of extraordinary work and creativity that pours out of our students, but we hope we’ll give you just a taste of what awaits you at Falmouth. Yes, we have great teachers, yes, we have world-class facilities and yes, we have amazing links with industry. We also have Cornwall, whose sea and sky make everything just that little bit more special.

Our mission is simple – to help you get a great job in the creative industries. You may set up on your own, you may join a global brand, but our focus is on giving you the edge. You’ll have the knowledge, entrepreneurial skills and contacts to move in to the creative industries. You’ll also have the Falmouth spirit – the creativity and innovation that sets you apart. The creative industries are the fastest growing sector of the UK economy and one in which this country leads the world. You’ll find a passion for creativity running through Falmouth. I graduated in Fine Art and every day I’m fortunate to work with photographers, writers, film-makers, designers, musicians, illustrators, games-artists – the list goes on. We have more than a 100 years of history behind us, yet no-one stands still – everyone looks forward. This is what makes Falmouth University so special.

Professor Anne Carlisle

Vice-Chancellor & Chief Executive

\ Welcome


OUR CHANCELLOR When Falmouth was granted University status by Her Majesty’s Privy Council in December 2012, it bestowed the right to appoint a Chancellor to play a leading role in the public life of the University. A ceremonial and ambassadorial position, the Chancellor works closely with the Vice-Chancellor’s office to help raise Falmouth’s profile and advance the University’s mission globally through advocacy. The role of Chancellor is granted in recognition of significant accomplishment and a shared ethos with the University. Dawn French was announced as the first Chancellor of Falmouth University in September 2014 and the formal ceremony to install her as Chancellor took place on 26 March 2015. Dawn is an ideal figurehead for Falmouth as she exemplifies the outlook and skills that are needed to succeed in the creative industries. She is a pioneering artist, an award-winning actor, comedian and bestselling novelist. Her career encompasses numerous contributions to television, film, theatre and writing, seven BAFTA nominations and receipt of a BAFTA Fellowship. She has a lifelong association and total passion for Cornwall, where she has made her home.

LIFE AT FALMOUTH Set on the UK’s southwestern edge, Falmouth has long inspired great minds. But don’t be fooled; life here is far from quiet. From galleries, live venues and international festivals, to 100+ University clubs and societies – this is a true creative playground. BY DAY Out and about There aren’t many universities just a five-minute walk from the beach. Whether you want to try water sports or fire up a barbecue with your housemates, the coast is a big part of Falmouth life. And you won’t need a car to explore further afield; many of the Students’ Union clubs and societies head out into the wider Cornish landscape – from north coast surf trips, to meets at the athletics track.

Sports and clubs Known as FXU, our Students’ Union is shared with the University of Exeter in Cornwall and offers over 100 clubs and societies. Run independently by students, for students, FXU provides support, entertainment and opportunities to help you get the most from university life.

Shopping Independent stores are king. Whether you’re after records, books or fashion, Falmouth offers a glut of indie destinations for different budgets and tastes. For essential groceries, there’s a range of major supermarkets close to each campus, and if it’s a high street fix you’re after, many brands are just a 15-minute train ride away in Cornwall’s capital, Truro.

\ Student Life


BY NIGHT Bars and pubs Falmouth’s town centre has a social scene to rival many larger universities, attracting students from Falmouth University, the University of Exeter and Falmouth Marine School. Alongside lively student pubs and bars you’ll find eclectic venues ranging from cocktail specialists to craft beer courtyards, and even a pub that doubles as a bookshop. The live scene Just walking distance from either campus, you can dip into a packed programme of live events. Falmouth’s Princess Pavilion frequently welcomes national comedians and musicians, as well as new and alternative bands. For entertainment with a difference, explore our underground scene with poetry slams, factory parties and secret cinema. Or if theatre and dance inspire, look no further than our Academy of Music and Theatre Arts (AMATA), which hosts renowned international performers and innovative new material.

Cinemas Alongside on-campus cinema screenings and pop-up outdoor events, you’ll discover an arthouse venue and five-screen cinema in Falmouth’s town centre. With student discounts, meal deals and rare shows, they cater for a range of genres from world cinema to the mainstream. 15

\ School xx

Festivals Cornwall is known for its festival calendar. Attracting international talent, annual events include Boardmasters, the Port Eliot Festival and the Masked Ball. If you prefer to keep things low key, get involved in the sea shanty weekender, the real ale festival or screen critic Mark Kermode’s favourite, the Cornwall Film Festival. 15

Tina Wangberg, 19 “I wanted to just get an impulse tattoo that was elegant and feminine with not that much thought behind it. The other two tattoos I’ve had done, I’ve been planning for four years. I don’t regret it at all”.

Grace Hessey, 20 “I wouldn’t say that getting a tattoo has made my career prosepcts worse. I’m at university and I’ve been working a job the entire time. It’s on my upper arm though so it’s not too visible when I’m working. Everyone has tattoos nowadays, so why not?”

Evelena Mattesson, 21 “I’ve had a few tattoos that I’m not completely proud of. I’ve got one of a smiley face somewhere on my body, I’m not going to tell you where, that I’m not happy with. I’ll probably get that one removed or covered up. I’m happy with the rest though, but maybe next time I’ll think a little more about what I get done.”

Entry qualifications A typical offer is for 104-120 UCAS points, primarily from Level 3 equivalent qualifications such as A-levels, BTEC Diplomas or Foundation Diplomas in Art & Design.

Language requirements You should be able to demonstrate English language skills that will enable successful completion of your studies, including a minimum of Grade 4 (or C) in GCSE English Language, or equivalent.

For a list of some of these equivalents, visit falmouth.ac.uk/apply If you are an international applicant and need a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK, you should take a Secure English Language Test (SELT) to fulfil government visa requirements.

FINANCE We believe that your future is worth investing in. Our Student Funding team is armed with the latest information on finance, fees and bursaries – making sure that you realise your creative potential by getting all the help you’re entitled to. There are two main costs involved in university life: tuition fees and the cost of living. You can find out more about these, and about funding and budgeting, at one of our open day finance talks, or online at falmouth.ac.uk/student-funding How much are tuition fees? Most UK and EU students don’t have to pay for fees up-front. If you successfully apply to the Student Loans Company for a fee loan they’ll pay tuition fees directly on your behalf. Our fees for September 2018 entry will be published in autumn 2017 and will be available online at falmouth.ac.uk/tuition-fees.

What government support is available? The government offers full-time UK students two different types of support: tuition fee loans and maintenance loans to help with living costs. To find out more about this support and how to apply for it, download a copy of our Money Matters guide at falmouth.ac.uk/student-funding

As a guide to costs, UK and EU students on full-time undergraduate degrees currently pay £9,250* a year in fees. Full-time undergraduate international students pay £15,000. It’s worth remembering that while you’re studying, you’ll also have some additional costs. These vary depending on your course (you’ll get a thorough breakdown on the course web page), but typically include materials or equipment and expenses related to study trips and placements. Some costs are optional and our Student Funding team can advise whether you might be eligible for help. *subject to agreement of the HE Bill by the Government
