Falmouth University is a specialist University for the creative industries based in Falmouth and Penryn, Cornwall, England. On 27 November 2012, a communication was released to the staff and students and local press that 'University College Falmouth is to be granted full university status in a move that will further its ambition to become one of the top five arts universities in the world. On 9 December 2012, the University College was officially granted full university status by the Privy Council.Falmouth University was judged by The Sunday Times to be the UK’s top arts university from 2015-2017.Falmouth is a specialist creative institution, aligning itself closely to the creative industries and striving to offer the latest innovative courses to ensure its graduates get great jobs. Based across 2 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. . This offers traditional studio-based courses in fine art, graphics and illustration, while the separate Institute of Photography takes advantage of the dramatic coastal setting to offer Europe’s first BA in marine and natural history photography, including an underwater option.

Students can now choose between courses in most creative fields: architecture and design; communications and journalism; fashion and textiles; film and television; and music and theatre arts. Most are based at the larger out-of-town Penryn Campus, shared with the University of Exeter and largely designed to boost hitherto limited higher educational provision within Cornwall.

More unusual is the very vocationally focussed Games Academy, where immersive courses give students coached largely by industry professionals the opportunity to work in teams and develop the full range of talents required by commercial games developers.

Since a large proportion of graduates want to remain in the area, Falmouth puts a strong stress on entrepreneurship, meaning that students don’t merely acquire specialist skills in communications or design but the ability to set up their own creative companies and so make a contribution to the comparatively sluggish local economy. The same philosophy animates the Falmouth Business School, which makes every effort to break down barriers between education and the real world of business, enabling many of its graduates to move straight from highly experiential courses to starting their own companies.
