Facts about Falmouth University

  •   Founded initially as Falmouth School of Art in 1902, today the University is one of the world’s leading international specialist arts institutions. From its formal opening, the institution was described as "destined to make its mark" and thanks to supporting from leading practitioners it’s done just that.
  • Based across two campuses, the environment in and around Falmouth University couldn’t be better. The Falmouth Campus meanders through a valley garden and provides the perfect venue for thinking, making and doing, while the Penryn Campus, shared with the University of Exeter, houses a fusion of arts and sciences in its state-of-the-art facilities.
  • In 2005, the Privy Council granted the institution the right to award degrees in its name, leading to the creation of University College Falmouth, before it was awarded full university status in 2012 and became Falmouth University.
