It’s not often that you get to study in a beautiful seaside town such as Falmouth, so for the students of University College Falmouth and Falmouth Marine School, what are the privileges of living and studying by the coast? And how do you make the most of Falmouth’s culture and history whilst doing so?

I’d like to say that we’re not all obsessed with social networking sites, but I think it’s more accurate to say that we are.
It started off on Bebo when we were 10, before switching to Myspace when we started wearing skinny jeans. Now the place to be is Facebook, and for those who feel their opinions are worthy to more than just their university friends, there’s Twitter. So why are our lives so heavily focused around these sites? And why, as university students, do we find them so useful?

Studying may be one of the dullest parts of university, but it is also one of the most important. Yet we just can’t seem to make the time for it. Even as students who stay up until 3am most night, procrastination appears the only productive thing to do. So what are the best and easiest ways to study around our sociable and sleep-filled days?
Whether you have an exam every week or a short essay every term, one of the first things you will learn at university is that any amount of work load can easily catch up with you. A week’s deadline or a whole month, there is no doubt it will be left until last-minute.

GCSE’s were easy; at the time we didn’t think there could be anything harder. But, in some way, it has all helped us get to where we are now. A-Levels are over. Gap years have finished. Now we find ourselves at University College Falmouth, beginning a new journey and taking on a course we hope to build our futures upon.
A fresh start and, for most, a new home miles away from the towns we grew up in. So why Falmouth? Falmouth is a beautiful town to live and study in, and its high population of students makes the environment even more welcoming. It’s often been described as a place of escape; a tranquil atmosphere and a place of influence that most don’t want to leave behind.
