As a student on one of our flexible learning courses you will be supported in the following ways:

  • Student Advisors are online every day of the week and are your first point of contact for any practical queries, and to give you tips on learning online effectively, advice about work-life balance, or to direct you to university support services
  • An online induction to welcome you to Falmouth and introduce you to studying online

Entry requirements

  • Proof of proficiency in English (minimum overall score of IELTS 6.5 with at least 6.0 in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening)

We also accept a range of equivalent recognised English language qualifications. Candidates without a degree or formal qualification are still encouraged to apply.

Residential workshops

While the modules are all taught online, we also provide residential workshops which take place twice a year, either at Falmouth or at international locations.

These are usually long weekends, running from Friday to Monday, and offer the chance to:

  • Meet with the course team and other students
  • Attend talks and workshops from Falmouth lecturers
  • Attend industry events and network with industry professionals
  • Take advantage of personal development opportunities
  • Have fun and socialise

Attendance is not compulsory or necessary to complete the degree, but we encourage you to attend one or more of the events as they provide a great opportunity to take part in the life of the course outside of your formal studies.
