MA Illustration graduate Fiona Rimmer talks about her online learning experience with Falmouth Flexible:


Hear from MA Illustration graduate Maxine Newell on how the graduation experience was:


Fiona Rimmer: I don't know. I think that online education can be an unusual choice because you think you're missing out on student opportunities. But if you're in a stage of your life where it's difficult to commit to that sort of lifestyle, then you really don't miss out with an online course. It's been really exciting. It's pushed me in directions that I've never expected. It's intellectually challenging, it's creative. You're very independent in the way that you are working. So I think it's just a brilliant thing to do. And I've absolutely loved it.

Maxine Newell: Thank you, Falmouth. I mean, it's been brilliant. We've been studying online and to get together today and to meet everybody in person, it's been great. And it's given, you know, to being flexible and online. It's enabled us to be able to work and to be able to study. So it's great. Brilliant thank you, Falmouth.
