You’re bound to have lots of questions regarding our Open Days this year. Whether it’s knowing how to register, when to arrive or what coronavirus safety precautions will be in place, find the answers to your questions below.
Yes. It is essential that you book your spot on a Falmouth University Open Day this year, as places are limited and we are unable to accept walk-ins.
Our Open Days this year will take approximately three hours if you’d only like to visit one of our campuses. If you’d like to experience both campuses, this will take approximately five to six hours.
Aim to arrive around 30 minutes before your booked slot to complete your registration and give yourself time to ask plenty of questions.
Whether you are planning to visit our Penryn Campus or our Falmouth Campus - or both - you must arrive at our Penryn Campus to register. We will be providing free transport between Penryn and Falmouth throughout the day, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to register before your tour.

Yes, you can bring one guest to an Open Day this year. If you bring more than one guest, they will not be able to accompany you during your booked sessions, as spaces are very limited.
We’d recommend wearing comfy shoes as the day usually involves lots of walking! Wear clothes you feel comfortable in, and please bring a face covering this year.

Yes. Please adhere to social distancing guidelines wherever possible.
A review of all layout, capacities and ventilation in seminar rooms, lecture theatres and other event spaces has been undertaken to support two metre social distancing. Where two metre distancing is not possible, we have planned for one metre distancing plus mitigating actions, all disigned to keep everyone safe.
To support social distancing, additional signage has been placed around our campuses. There will be one-way sytems in place in some areas. Signage will be clearly displayed, and routes will be highlighted on a building by building basis.
Plese note, some routes may be slightly longer for accessibility requirements and lift capacity is now one person at a time.
