College Profile

The University College Falmouth was set up in response to the dwindling of scientific activities in the region that was brought about by the downfall of the Cornish mining industry. By order of the Privy Council, the College is the first independent institution of Higher Education in Cornwall with the supremacy to award degrees in its own name.

The University College Falmouth specialises in award winning art, design and media courses at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level.

University College Falmouth has two campuses: Woodlane in Falmouth and Tremough, about 20 minutes away, near Penryn.

The Design Centre flaunts the most modern tools for designing, prototyping and making (including 13 kilns and a digital printing suite).

The Media Centre includes a state-of-the-art music-recording studio, a well-equipped Newsroom with an IRN news feed and 20 workstations with professional scriptwriting and editing software, three radio control rooms, and a talk studio.

The Interactive Arts Centre boasts of a range of software including web design, image manipulation, video and audio editing, and 3Dmodelling and design within a high-end facility.

Learning Resource Centres at both the campuses displays a range of resources including a collective book collection of 140,000, extensive electronic and journal resources, specialist video, map and slide collections, IT facilities, a selection of different study environments, and professional library support staff.

Art facilities include a generous studio and floor space. There is even a tented courtyard for outdoor sculpture. Graphics equipment includes the latest, most cutting edge Apple computers.
