Full event details
Falmouth is a great place to study Foundation. The University is a specialist arts institution with courses in Art, Design, Media, Performance and Writing, so you'll be working within a very creative community from the outset. Cornwall has an established and historic art scene and this popular, friendly course has an excellent 40-year track record.
We encourage you to explore various ways of working and thinking so that you can find your strengths, then make a decision about which art, design or media direction to follow from the potential areas of study. We'll then start to lead you along this pathway, until you are ready to independently set off towards your specialist destination.
For many of you this course bridges the gap between secondary and higher education, deepening your knowledge and building a portfolio for degree application. For others, it will be a great chance to diversify into new fields or refresh your skills. Whoever you are, you'll find the experience will challenge your attitudes, equip you with new skills and introduce new approaches to creative practice and learning.
