Mission & Strategy

Falmouth students learn by making and doing, but they are continually challenged through theoretical study, research and
critical thinking to ensure that they make original, relevant and contemporary work. We produce storytellers, with something to say about the world. All practical course curricula is designed (and updated) in close consultation with industry professionals and training bodies to ensure that SoFT graduates are equipped with relevant professional, intellectual and practical skills required in an constantly changing film and television industry. Employability is central to our mission. Cornwall is a beautiful but economically challenged part of the UK. We therefore target local applicants as part of a wider strategy to boost Cornish
regeneration.
