Tips for applying
Do your research
Before you apply make sure you've looked into key information such as how the course is taught and assessed, whether you get a dedicated studio space, how to apply for accommodation and what support services are available to you.
Always complete your application yourself, but remember at Falmouth our Applicant Services team can phone you and help you do this.
If you're applying by phone, have your UCAS number (if you have one) and your qualifications (including the name of the qualification, the subject, the grade and when you took them) to hand.
Ask the right questions
When you're talking to our Applicant Services team, be sure to get all your questions answered. For example you might want to ask what accommodation is available, whether you have a deadline, when the start of term is or whether there is any summer reading/work for your course.
You can chat to our current students online too, as well as attend Online Events we're running. These are great spaces to ask questions and get all the information you need about studying at Falmouth.
