The following information is intended for applicants who have already been invited to an audition or interview, to help them prepare. Please note this is only valid for 2020-21.
We invite all applicants who show potential to an audition or interview. All interviews will take place online this year to ensure a safe experience. Interviews are two-way: they give you the opportunity to show your creative skills and ask any questions about the course; and they help us to assess further your potential to succeed in your chosen subject.
We'll invite you to an interview through the Falmouth Applicant Portal.
If, in order to attend an online interview, you have any individual requirements due to a long-term health condition, specific learning difficulty or disability, please contact the Accessibility Service as soon as possible.

This will enable us to discuss and put in place any support or adjustments you may require, for example, live online captioning, BSL interpreter, adjusted interview time/length, or information in a different format.
You can find details of your interview in the Applicant Portal
You can find a list of alternative dates in the Applicant Portal if you're not able to make the one we've allocated to you. If you do need to reschedule we would advise you do this as soon as you can as dates fill up quickly.
You will need to visit the Falmouth Challenges page and choose a challenge to answer as a Pitch. You will then present your Pitch at your interview.
As well as completing a Falmouth Challenge as a Pitch, please read the information under 'What are you looking for in a successful applicant?' as it will help you prepare for the interview and understand how we assess your potential.
We would also like you to start to think about the following questions that we will be asking you in your interview. We don't expect you to have memorised your answers to these, but it would be good if you could do some research and start to think about your answers before the day.
Which module are you most excited about and what would be your contribution? (please see the 'What you'll learn' section of the course page on the Falmouth University website for details of the modules).
What have you seen or read that has changed your way of thinking – this may or may not include books/films etc. that you have studied.
What do you do beyond your studies that contributes to your community?
We recommend you familiarise yourself with the information on the Creative Writing course page
A successful applicant will be able to evidence their skills, their enthusiasm and commitment to their subject according to the following criteria:
|Criteria to be assessed||Evidenced by|
Personal statement/Interview conversation
|Personal statement/Reference/Interview conversation/Pitch|
We aim to make all decisions within five working days of interviews. However, in some cases, we might wait until we have held a batch of interview sessions before we make a decision. All decisions will be made online in your UCAS Track account and we will also email you.
