Attending an on-campus Open Day is the best way to get a real taste of undergraduate student life at Falmouth. This is an informal day that provides a great way to see our professional-standard facilities, speak to our academic staff and meet our current students. 

What to expect

At our Open Days you can expect the following:

  • A warm welcome
