Commercial Photography, BA Hons FullTime

First year tutor is very helpful and friendly and always available for chats about anything. The course is very fun with many inductions with the technicians and a lot of opportunities to work in the studio and collaborate with the rest of the course and chances to collborate with other courses. There is a large amount of workload which can be manageable but you have to stay on top of what you are doing however they are very open briefs and modules that give you the freedom to explore different styles. read more

Photography, BA Hons FullTime

Studying BA Photography here was the worst decision of my life - waste of time and money. YR 1 lecturers are useless with no clue how to 'teach' students, really disappointing. Please choose another location. The location of the university makes a huge impact, Cornwall lacks a photography industry here. Studying in London would open more opportunities to make a connections in industry. This uni is run like a factory to make money with hardly any time to discuss work with the tutors at the weekly 15 min tutorials - unhelpful. The tutors have no understanding of how to 'teach' someone. The whole course lacked direction and clarity of expectations, guidance and support. There was a 1 hr lecture per week based on theory and dated humanity, dogmatic and baseless theories. I regret going here, it was an unstimulating course, The facilities are amazing and it was a huge draw for me, but the equipment and studios would need to be booked a month in advance. read more

Great studios and camera,although you won't be "shooting" non stop, there's a 6h-12 limit per week ...studios are always overbooked, cameras are always overbooked and good luck if you want to learn more on Photoshop or other programs... - of course the uni offers you a course in photoshop- just pay extra 140£;) read more

Fashion Photography, BA Hons FullTime

The course is great of you really want to go into Fashion Photography. While they like to make it sound like you can branch out and explore other creative paths they really won't help you much with that. Well they haven't this year. Though the staff and teaching style seems to be changing. Certain lectures have been unhelpful, condescending and at times rude. However there have been some that are helpful and very knowledgeable. I personally wouldn't recommend this course unless you're 100% sure you want to go into the fashion industry if you do you will thrive. However other creatives can feel limited. This being said the university has great resources and you can tailor the modules to your personal interests fairly easy. THERE IS LITTLE TO KNOW MODULE OPTIONS, I thought this would be more prominent in my uni experience but the course has been widely rigid and inflexible. read more

Illustration, BA Hons FullTime

I really enjoy my course, it is a subject that I am very passionate about and the tutors and lecturers also share this passion. The first year is very much about experimenting with media, visual language, different project briefs, discovering the facilities on campus (eg printing rooms) and finding our interests. However, because it is such a big course, there is not much one on one time with tutors to get feedback on your work. read more

Amazing course I'm really enjoying it! The tutors are amazing and the work is always meaningful and fun. I've come a long way in just one year and have been much more confident in my art! Only downside is the amount of work you are given so if you're not ready to give your all you will fall behind. read more

Interior Design, BA Hons FullTime

I have just finished studying the wonderful Interior Design course at Falmouth. It has been such an amazing couple years at the university with the constant support of hard working lecturers and tutors, who are always finding new ways to improve. I found that Falmouth has been so personal the whole way through and I was not seen as a number on a piece of paper which I was at other interviews when I was looking at Interior Design degrees. The course allows you to explore different routes within interior design and its definitely one of the most employable courses in the UK. Couldn't recommend this course enough! read more

Although there is a lack of materials given (I.e. we have to pay for paper and printing etc) the course is phenomenal. Weekly guest speakers from top and varied agencies or designers. Competitions, awards, weekly reviews and team meetings. The community within this course is next to none and the opportunities that have come my way thus far have been amazing. Wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. read more

The Illustration alumni have won numerous awards and prizes. Students here go on the achieve great things. I think this is because the course is so well respected and presented. We're expected to achieve this, though not feeling pressured. We're guided to fulfil our potential. Our tutors are all practicing illustrators; they know what they're talking about, and are always approachable. We have workshops, seminars, crits and lectures five days a week, which makes me feel like it's worth the money. I'm feeling more confident every day. read more
