Originally founded as Falmouth School of Art in 1902, today Falmouth University is one of the world’s leading international specialist creative institutions. It is one of the few universities offering the full range of creative subjects.
The university aligns itself closely to the creative industries and strives to offer the latest innovative courses, such as Computing for Games and Business Entrepreneurship, to ensure its graduates get great jobs, not only within the creative sector, but in other industries, where creative skillsets are in ever increasing demand.
Based across two campuses, the environment in and around Falmouth University couldn’t be better. The Falmouth Campus meanders through a valley garden and provides the perfect venue for thinking, making and doing, while the Penryn Campus, shared with the University of Exeter, houses a fusion of arts and sciences in modern, professional facilities.
Today, there has never been a greater need for creativity. With it, goals can be met and surpassed, opportunities created and lives, as well as commerce enriched. At Falmouth University, our research and innovation shapes our teaching and the world we live in. Our national and international partnerships provide opportunity for business and students alike. Through our students we nurture and release creative capital. It benefits them as well as the world.
For more than 100 years Falmouth University has been challenging creativity. Through it, we are redefining creative education and making a vital contribution to the resurgence of the local and global economies.
Research at Falmouth is organised in three strategic research themes, namely: Digital Economy/Digital Games; Smart Design and Creative Connected Communities.
