Students from Liskeard School & Community College have enjoyed the opportunity to explore student life at Falmouth University, visiting the campus to view their end of year degree shows and have a tour of the facilities.

They had the chance to talk with student ambassadors and lecturers from various courses, and were keen to explore the opportunities the university can offer.

Head of Creative and Performing Arts, Lee Pascoe, was delighted with how the students used the visit.

“It was an absolute privilege to see our students so inspired and excited by the opportunities available to them for further study here in Cornwall; along with the very clear, career paths on their doorsteps. Exhibitions by graduate students included Fine Art, Drawing, Advertising, Graphic Design, Architecture, Photography, Animation, Film and Television, Fashion and Textiles among others; all proving immensely inspiring,” he said.

Students chatted to academic staff about various commercial briefs set by clients, the nature of working in various media, and viewed impressive technologies, including specialist camera equipment valued at over two million pounds, specialist studios facilitating virtual, immersive technologies, as well as traditional green screening.

Inspired by ambassadors and academic staff sharing the students’ stories of photographic expeditions to capture rare and endangered species, in remote complex geo-political environments, to sharing experiences of working as a camera man for twelve years on the sets of Wallace and Gromit at Aardman Studios; the students were, needless to say, enthralled throughout the day.
