Online Learning Community

Learn together in a global community

Wherever you are and however you choose to study, once you start your degree you'll become part of our online learning community. Whether it's in our Virtual Learning Environment, on social media, or through your Tutor, there are many ways to connect and engage when you're studying an online degree.

Virtual Learning Environment

During your time studying with us you'll have access to our dedicated Virtual Learning Environment. This provides a space to engage with course materials and connect with your lecturers and fellow students. Each degree has a 'Course Hub' which you will be able to access via the Virtual Learning Environment. From there you will be able to use our online forums to discuss your work with other students. Your Course Hub also contains useful information regarding resource lists, course toolkits and assessment guidance to help keep you on track. You will also have access to a 'Student Hub' which covers support, regulations and study skills for your time at Falmouth.

You'll have the opportunity to go to face-to-face events

We offer optional face-to-face events for our online students that usually happen twice a year. While they're not essential, they'll be an enhancement to your chosen course. They're great opportunities to meet your course-mates and Tutors and to explore course related topics through additional activities and discussions. You'll get the chance to hear from industry experts, offering a wider professional context for your learning and a deeper insight into your chosen industry.

Event dates and locations may vary. We'll cover the costs relating to the events themselves, so you'll just need to pay for your travel, food and accommodation. More information about these events will be given to you when you start your course. 

Please bear in mind that the Covid-19 pandemic may impact these events. You can view the latest information here.

Connect socially

Students regularly create Facebook groups that allow them to connect with others on their online degree, share tips and get to know each other. Just because you're online doesn't mean you miss out on meeting new people, sharing experiences and challenging each other.

Tutors & Student Advisors

While you're studying, your Tutor will offer continuous feedback on your work and be your first point of contact for any academic queries. You'll also have a Student Advisor who'll be there to answer any general questions you have, help you to access support services and guide you through your student journey.

Request information

You can submit our simple online form and a Course Advisor will get in touch with you. They'll be able to answers questions about how you'll study, what to expect from the online course, and the next step to take on your application journey.
