Creative industries are, by their very nature, progressive. They constantly evolve and change, with new ideas, methods, and trends being introduced all the time.  And while this is part of what makes them so exciting and interesting, it can also make seeking education difficult, as students often find that courses can quickly become outdated, making it harder to find training truly relevant to the current market.

Falmouth’s flexible creative Master’s courses are different, aiming to not only deliver the most timely  course material available, but to give the students the tools they need to evolve with their industry, helping them to stay relevant and ensuring they can enjoy long, successful careers.

Falmouth’s Flexible Learning Courses are Designed by Industry Professionals

Falmouth Universtiy has an impeccable reputation for delivering innovative, cutting edge education for creative professionals. Part of the reason for this is due to the input into our courses from industry experts and experienced professionals who are still active in their sector, making it easy for them to stay informed about the latest developments.

Their knowledge and input informs all aspects of our flexible learning courses, helping to ensure that content is up to date and as relevant as possible, and that students get real, actionable insights that can really help their careers.

Flexible Learning Courses Have a Forward-Thinking Focus

Both the university and its academic staff firmly believe in the need for the creative industries to continue to grow and change. That’s why Falmouth’s flexible Master’s courses are designed with a deliberately forward-thinking focus.

The MA Photography degree, for example, aims to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to engage with the technologically and socially evolving medium, and introduces them to new commercial possibilities available to photographers, such as opportunities to find work as digital content producers.

In addition, the project-based nature of Falmouth’s MA courses encourages students to develop and work on original ideas, fostering a culture of innovation and inquisitiveness. This dynamic approach forces both students and instructors to stay on their toes, constantly questioning their assumptions and embracing the new directions and possibilities of their medium.

Flexible Learning Students are Exposed to New Ideas through Collaboration

Another great aspect of Falmouth’s flexible learning approach is the amount of collaboration between students the courses involve. For instance, MA Creative App Development students work together on a co-creation design and development project, as well as participating in regular group discussions and critiques of each other’s work.

Not only does this approach help foster valuable teamwork skills, but because Falmouth’s degrees attract people from all over the world, students are exposed to a diverse range of views and ideas from vastly different international markets.

This can lead to the discovery of new trends, methods, and processes that can help them stay ahead of the curve in their industry. Even more crucially, it also teaches them to keep their minds open to a wide range of viewpoints, a quality which can help them stay relevant in their industry long after they have finished their studies.
