Falmouth University's professional development short courses are designed to give businesses and individuals a competitive edge. Our study units and courses are not only specifically geared towards the creative industries - they are also focused on non-creative industries wanting to gain creative skills.
Businesses and technologies change rapidly. The result is a need for people to continually learn and be able to move within companies. CPD and associated skills are needed just to keep in touch with changes in working lives and developing future plans.
Falmouth University's Professional Development courses are:
- built on our subject expertise and reputation in Art, Design, Media and Performance,
- professionally-focused, for work-based learners wanting to enhance career options and commercial success,
- responsive to employer requirements, industry trends and practices,
- developed in consultation with our network of industry partners in line with best practice,
- delivered by professionals working at the forefront of industry,
- flexible, with multiple delivery options.
What makes CPD at Falmouth unique?
We view CPD as a process where people plan and own their own study. It’s not a product. Whether it’s learning online, blended learning or a 1 day intensive on-campus session, Falmouth University has developed a successful intensive short course delivery format with a quality instructional design that will upscale employees and have them using their newly acquired skills in short order.

Falmouth University has a long and proven track record in launching graduates into successful creative careers.
Learning doesn't stop when a career starts or a new business is launched. In the fast-changing and constantly growing creative and communications industries, keeping up to date with new ideas, skills and approaches is crucial.
Our academics and network of industry partners and advisors can help you keep ahead of the game - as an individual, a small business or an employer.
Our subject knowledge and recognised teaching excellence are second to none.
We know that traditional full-time, campus-based learning is no longer practical for many. In response we are developing a new range of short, flexible, online and face-to-face courses with busy professionals and organisations in mind - designed to enhance career prospects and move businesses forward.
Of course you will have an idea of what you need - so whether you are an employer, an individual or a Falmouth University staff member please have a browse around the site and get in touch with any feedback or ideas for new courses.
Our portfolio of short courses is constantly expanding. On this page you will find a summary of courses currently on offer.
At Falmouth University we are working hard with employers to bring you professional development courses that can enhance your career and business prospects.
We would be very interested to hear from you if you feel there is a particular set of skills that you would like to develop or a subject area that you would like to see covered in a new professional development course.
Do you have an idea for a new course? Here you can test the financial viability of your idea, complete an online proposal and find help to get your course off the ground - with the minimum of fuss and bureaucracy.
Our aim is to support academics who would like to develop new professional development courses aimed at work-based learners looking to enhance their career prospects or employers wanting to develop their staff skills.
You might be thinking of working in collaboration with an industry partner to develop a new credit-bearing module, or adapt a current module for a new audience and format.
You may want to deliver it as a face-to-face, blended or online learning opportunity leading to the award of transferable credits, or as a simple one-off experience.
