Falmouth University’s Games Academy is a Rookies Certified School – a quality mark that identifies the schools that are best suited to prepare artists for a career in the creative industries. In the Rookies Rankings 2023, Falmouth has retained its position as one of the top ten creative schools in the UK, and top 50 in the world.  

The Games Academy, home to Falmouth University’s games and computing courses, offers expert tuition from industry-experienced lecturers and professional-standard facilities and equipment. Championing cross-discipline collaboration and creative thinking, Games Academy students harness the breadth of creative talent on our campuses – including artists, writers, composers, actors and business experts – to produce real games and digital products while they study. 

In the 2023 Top 50 Creative Schools rankings by the Rookies, Falmouth’s Games Academy retained its position as sixth in the UK and 39th in the world. These results are based on over 5,500 student participants, with 180 judges completing 58,000 project reviews. 

The Rookies says that the Top 50 Creative Schools list ‘showcases the most distinguished educational institutions that stand out as leaders in nurturing and shaping the next generation of artists, designers, animators, and creative professionals.’
