Prepare for applying
1. Do your research
Before you apply make sure you've looked into key information such as how the course is taught and assessed, whether you get a dedicated studio space, how to apply for accommodation and what support services are available to you.
2. Apply yourself
Always complete your application yourself. Remember, the Falmouth University Applicant Services team are on hand to offer application advice and guidance at every stage.
3. Be prepared
If you're applying by phone, you'll need to supply your UCAS number (if you have one) and your qualifications (including the name of the qualification, the subject, the grade and when you took them).
4. Ask the right questions
When you're talking to our Applicant Services team, be sure to get all your questions answered. For example you might want to ask what accommodation is available, whether you have a deadline, when the start of term is or whether there is any summer reading/work for your course.
5. Virtual visits & events
