About Falmouth Marine School

Falmouth Marine School provides a comprehensive selection of courses from introduction to degrees in partnership with Plymouth University. We specialise in Boatbuilding, Leisure & Watersports, Marine Engineering and Marine Science & Biology.

We have an excellent international reputation for our marine courses with superb facilities including boatbuilding and engineering workshops, a dedicated marine science lab and a well equipped watersports centre. Our tutors combine industry experience with academic expertise and are active in their field through research and personal interest in their subjects. 

Our research unit allows you to participate in original research and gain a greater understanding of the marine systems you intend to work in. We also have an employment officer to help you start your career once you have completed your studies with us.

Whatever you choose to study, Falmouth Marine School is committed to ensuring that you enjoy your time with us, and can be assured of personal attention, support and guidance every step of the way.

Campus information

To help support you during your time at college we have many facilities for you to use including:

Sails Café 

Take a break from your studies and relax and unwind in Sails Café.

Lounge and catch up with friends, watch the big screen TV or challenge your skills on the pool table. You can also enjoy the sunshine outside in the courtyard amongst the palm trees or catch up on your reading with the book exchange.

Sails Café offers a varied menu including sandwiches, baguettes, paninis, wraps and salad bowls with various fillings, as well as a selection of hot meals, drinks and deserts. There are also vending machines for when the café is closed.

Tutorial Support

We care for all of your individual and to do this we provide personal tutorials on a regular basis to help you through your academic and social life. Everyone is treated in a way that will encourage and support them so that their personal development meets their goals and targets.

Falmouth Marine School is located just a few minutes’ walk away from the Fal estuary


Where you live is central to your College life.

You need to ensure you are going to be happy in your surroundings. A key factor is the cost of the accommodation - therefore you need to look closely at how much you can afford before you start looking.

We are always concerned about the health, safety and welfare of all students.

We would therefore strongly advise our younger students (those under 18) to choose a Bed, Breakfast and Evening Meal option (BBEM). By choosing BBEM we can be assured (provided the student/parent/landlady/landlord let us know) that they can be contacted and have a mature adult on hand to help should any emergency arise.

This is particularly necessary overnight and/or at the weekends. Student accommodation can be in a family or home environment, with meals provided at set times each day. Alternatively you may prefer self-catering in shared houses or flats.

We are able to assist with the following:

  • Self-Catering and Bed & Breakfast accommodation lists
  • Lodging lists
  • Short-term and temporary accommodation
  • Your rights and responsibilities as a tenant
