Sandwich Year Degrees

Creative advertising students discussing in front of an ideas wall.

We offer the opportunity to take a Sandwich Year, also known as a placement year, on many of our on-campus undergraduate courses.

During this year, you'll have the option to either take a role in industry, study abroad or develop your business or freelance work, with support from the University.

Please note that you cannot undertake a Sandwich Year if you're enrolled on a two-year accelerated degree. Self-employment options are also only available to UK students, due to Visa requirements.

About our Sandwich Year

The Sandwich Year, taken between the second and final year of your degree, is the ideal way to enhance your studies by broadening your experiences and gaining sought-after and transferable workplace skills.

 

Building on what you've already learned on your course by applying it in the real world will give you great industry insights, experience for your CV and a network of contacts that will boost your employability after graduation.

How to apply

You can apply for this four-year degree before you come to Falmouth, or you can switch onto the Sandwich Year route before the end of your second year.
