The following information is intended for applicants who have already been invited to an audition or interview, to help them prepare. Please note this is only valid for 2020-21.
We invite all applicants who show potential to an audition or interview. All interviews will take place online this year to ensure a safe experience. Interviews are two-way: they give you the opportunity to show your creative skills and ask any questions about the course; and they help us to assess further your potential to succeed in your chosen subject.
We'll invite you to an interview through the Falmouth Applicant Portal.
You can find details of your interview in the Applicant Portal
You can find a list of alternative dates in the Applicant Portal if you're not able to make the one we've allocated to you. If you do need to reschedule we would advise you do this as soon as you can as dates fill up quickly.
Before allocating you an interview date, you will need to send us a link to your online portfolio.
If you don't have a suitable portfolio then you can choose to answer one of our Falmouth Challenges instead in the form of a portfolio or a pitch. Upload your portfolio or pitch online and send us a single link (the link needs to be accessible without a username or password or specific software) through the Applicant Portal
Once we have received it, we will then book a time and date for your interview.
Reflect on and think about how your online portfolio or response to the Falmouth Challenge relates to your interest in studying Creative Advertising. Bring any notes, if you like, to help you along.
We would also like to hear from you details of any school/college project or work experience that you might have done before, what you learnt or any relevant skills you feel you have picked up. This is also a chance for you to elaborate on details you might have mentioned in your personal statement.
The interview is very much a two-way street. So we expect you may have questions for us about the course.
We recommend you consider any further questions you may have and familiarise yourself with the information on the BA(Hons) Creative Advertising course page
A successful applicant will be able to evidence their skills, their enthusiasm and commitment to their subject according to the following criteria:
|Criteria to be assessed||Evidenced by|
Research and problem solving - awareness of and enthusiasm for advertising and marketing. Passion for ideas.
Communication and presentation skills - being able to convey ideas clearly, visually and/or verbally.
Collaborative skills - willingness and desire to share ideas and work collaboratively with a partner. Relevant extra-curricular activities or related work experience.

We aim to make all decisions within five working days of interviews. However, in some cases, we might wait until we have held a batch of interview sessions before we make a decision. All decisions will be made online in your UCAS Track account and we will also email you.
If, in order to attend an online interview, you have any individual requirements due to a long-term health condition, specific learning difficulty or disability, please contact the Accessibility Service as soon as possible.
