Why study an undergraduate degree online?

Study around your life

Are you looking for flexibility with your studies? Do you want to learn from home? Are you looking to complete a degree alongside your work? There are lots of reasons to study an online degree. 

Studying an online degree can allow students to change career while maintaining their income. Alternatively, you may have commitments that can't be put on hold while you study a full-time degree but could work around a part-time degree online. 

Save on commuting and accommodation

Online students don't need to worry about the costs of commuting or on-campus accommodation. Lectures, seminars and assessments can all be done at a distance. Better than that, many can be tailored to fit around the time you have available to study. 

Get the same standard of teaching

Receive the same standards of teaching as our on-campus community whilst enjoying the flexibility that online learning offers.

Frequently asked questions 

The design of our online undergraduate degrees at Falmouth means you can access your course content anytime, anywhere, and you can choose to study part-time, making it possible for you to study while working. 

We generally recommend 27 - 33 hours of study per week for our part-time degree, or 40 - 50 for the full-time programme, depending on your individual learning style and ability. The important thing to remember is that you can complete these hours at a time that suits you; all lectures are recorded and can be replayed at any time, so can fit around working commitments.  

Our online undergraduate degrees are accelerated degrees.

An accelerated degree condenses the modules of a traditional undergraduate degree into two years if you study full-time, or three years if you study part-time. That means you'll be working across three study blocks per year, with shorter breaks between each study block rather than a traditional long break over summer. 

Accelerated degrees are a great way to fast-track your studies, progress faster and be ready to join the workplace sooner, while usually saving money on tuition fees and living costs.

Falmouth’s online degrees have all been designed from the outset to be taught online.  

Advanced learning research underpins their design, and they're delivered through a bespoke virtual learning environment, known as Learn - a platform which has been crafted specifically for online tuition.  

Course materials are released via the virtual learning environment at the end of each week, allowing time to plan your studies for the week ahead. 

Teaching takes place through lectures from practicing professionals. Lectures are pre-recorded and re-watchable, so you won't have to worry about attending them live – it's like ‘learning on-demand’ to suit your schedule.  

You will also have the opportunity to attend weekly webinars where you can connect with what's being taught, ask questions and collaborate. Webinars are recorded so you can engage with conversations even if you can't attend at the time they are scheduled.

Wellbeing, accessibility and employability are just some of the ways Falmouth students are supported throughout their time with us, and online students benefit from the same levels of support as on-campus students.  

Our Accessibility and Inclusive Learning team support and advise students with disabilities, health conditions and Specific Learning Differences (such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or ADHD).  You can access their support as soon as you have accepted your place, and can find their contact details and more information on the Accessibility and Inclusion study hub.

While you're studying, your Tutor will offer regular feedback on your work and be your first point of contact for any academic queries. You'll also have continual access to technical support, and a Student Advisor who'll be there to answer any general questions you have, help you to access academic and wellbeing support services (like our employability service, RealWORKS) and guide you through your student journey. 

Falmouth’s online degrees are validated and awarded in exactly the same way as those taught on campus, and online students graduate in the same in-person ceremonies as on-campus students. Your degree certificate will not say “online”. 

The difference with our online degrees is that they are designed from the outset to be taught online, by an award-winning team of Learning Designers. Advanced research underpins their design, and they're delivered through a bespoke virtual learning environment, known as Learn - a platform which has been crafted specifically for online tuition.  

You have the option to apply via UCAS or directly with us, depending on the course you choose and your level of education or professional experience. Find out the best way for you to apply for your chosen online degree.
