For Real Award
Doing it for real is an all-important aspect of studying and learning at Falmouth, and we are keen to support our students to be able to achieve this.
The For Real Award offers financial support to eligible students, to help cover the cost of off-campus activity such as work placements or self-initiated study trips.
To apply for an award, you need to do the following:
1. Check you are eligible to apply
Read the Award Information and Application guidance below to ensure you and your activity and eligible for funding and that you meet the relevant deadline.
2. Get your planned activity approved and risk assessed
All activities must be academically approved and risk assessed in order to be considered for funding. We suggest applicants meet with a member of their academic team who can provide a supporting academic statement (page 7 of the For Real Award application form) and undertake / sign off the appropriate risk assessment with you.
To register your activity and complete the required risk assessments for your work placement or study trip, please follow the appropriate link:
3. Complete and submit your For Real Award application
