Fellows & Honorary Fellows

Fellowships and Honorary Fellowships are the highest accolades that Falmouth University confers onto individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the creative sector.

Those recognised for their achievements include performers, writers, artists, musicians, and photographers from Cornwall and across the globe.

The awards are not formal academic awards and carry no formal duties or responsibilities. Instead, they reflect Falmouth's recognition of the significant role that an individual has performed either professionally or personally, particularly in providing an inspiration for students and staff.

Dartington College of Arts and Falmouth University (then University College Falmouth) merged in 2008, and those who received their awards from Dartington have also been included here.

If the individual who has accepted the nomination is an alumnus of Falmouth University they would be awarded with a Fellowship, those who took their studies elsewhere would be awarded an Honorary Fellowship.

Nominations may only be suggested to the Honorary Awards Committee by Falmouth University staff.
