Entry requirements

We welcome applicants with varied qualifications, but typically you'll need an undergraduate degree in a related discipline. Our typical applicants hold an undergraduate degree of 2:2 or above, or equivalent experience.

We’ll also welcome your application if you have formal or 'certified' learning (such as training courses not run by universities or colleges) and learning from work experience or self-study. This is called Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL), and should have been gained within the last five years, and be equivalent to the learning outcomes of our minimum entry qualifications.

APL applicants using experience to apply should note there is a £200 application fee for entry with advanced standing or with exemption from specific modules or credit.

Course content

Are you passionate about game design? Do you often think games could be better? Are you curious about what makes games engaging and meaningful? At Falmouth, you'll work with programmers and artists in a studio environment to make innovative and arresting games.

We'll cover specialist areas in storytelling and design, developing skills to reveal new horizons of gaming. With help from your ex-industry mentors, you’ll gain the skills you need for employment or enterprise in a games and media context. Collaborating with other talented game-lovers, you’ll design your own AAA, indie or board games and see your ideas come to life.
