New Students

Our team is on hand to make sure that your transition to Falmouth is as smooth as possible.

Guidance and advice before you arrive

The Compass is a student information service, that offers help and advice on any aspect of university life whether you have a quick query or require specialist support. From money matters to mental health, housing or accessibility they're here to find the answers and give you the support you need throughout your university life.

Falmouth's mentoring scheme matches all new first years with existing students, to help you settle in. They're volunteers from your specific course, there to answer any questions you might have, and to be a friend throughout your first year at Falmouth.

One of our friendly Student Mentors will give you a call, starting Monday 25 June. If you would prefer them to contact you online, just let them know on

Find out about everything that's going on during Freshers 2018 on our Student's Union (FXU) Freshers page. Here you will find your full Freshers events programme, over 130 activity groups, advice and student voice information.

Enrolment and student cards

It's important that you enrol online before the first day of term. Enrolment opens two weeks before you start your studies. We'll email you to remind you, provide your login details and guide you through the process.

If your placement at Falmouth is conditional, send in your qualification certificates as soon as you have them. Simply email a digital copy, or post photocopies if you prefer.
