Falmouth University specialises in courses for the creative economy, focusing on a world where creativity is becoming the single most valued commodity. Students work across disciplines and departments, collaborating to make new ways of thinking creating and communicating, to design new products, services and processes. The university's two campuses are full of inspiration, whether nestled in an historical sub-tropical garden, or part of the contemporary creative hub of Falmouth.
