Studying online as a neurodivergent student

If you’re thinking that a traditional university education isn’t for you - whether you’re neurodivergent or not - I honestly cannot recommend studying online with Falmouth enough. The ability to do things at your own pace, with so much support and love around you, has made this already one of the greatest experiences of my life. And I’ve still so much more to do."

Creative Writing BA(Hons) (Online) student Daniel Whitaker shares his experiences studying online as a neurodivergent student.
