Studying in Falmouth

Falmouth is mainly known as a pretty seaside town in Cornwall but it’s also a university town, home to Falmouth University.

Are you planning to study here? Want to know more about Falmouth before you accept a place? Want somewhere warm and safe to stay while you study in town? Sanctuary Students can help!

We have high-quality, low-cost Falmouth university accommodation. It’s calledHenry Scott Tuke House and we’re going to tell you all about it!

Falmouth University is regarded as the best arts university in the country according to the Times and Sunday Times. That’s no real surprise considering Dawn French is Chancellor!

It’s not just about the arts though. You can also study architecture, AI for games, business and digital marketing, entrepreneurship and innovation, business finance, data science and many more courses.

The emphasis really is on arts though, with everything from creative writing to costume design on the curriculum.

Even though Falmouth University is ranked top for arts, it doesn’t have the same reputation or mystique as some of the bigger, more well-known universities. We think that’s a good thing. The more people know about Falmouth, the tougher the competition to get in!

The university is located by the town centre with another campus in Penryn, a few miles away.  It’s a short walk from town, the harbour and everything that’s going on.

It’s also a short walk from Henry Scott Tuke House, managed on behalf of the university by Sanctuary Students.

The town has the relaxed vibe Cornwall is so famous for, with laid-back locals, friendly visitors and easy access to surf shops and beaches.
