Student Reviews

Great place for Art degrees
Yaman Homad Sultan rated 5 out of 5 stars

Falmouth university represented by its staff and tutors is an excellent place to get a degree in Arts. Arts include Events Management, Photography, Design, etc. As a foreign student, I have taken advantage of their flexible online program without the need to get myself a student visa and the whole dilemma.

Lots of resources!
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great photography resources such as 9 studios, colour/b&w darkrooms, microscopy and huge range of equipment to borrow. The technicians are really lovely and helpful. Tutors can be a bit airy fairy when giving feedback, although it's trying to push you sometimes it's in a direction that's not true to you. What you learn in 1st year teaches you to look at things diffrent...

A brief overview of my time at university.
Anonymous rated 1 out of 5 stars

The course provided me with skills and knowledge related to the events industry that I then enriched through being active and collaborative.
