“Falmouth is the perfect location to study marine biology. With the River Fal and several beaches just a stone’s throw away, it makes for the perfect outdoor classroom. The College provided several opportunities to work with leading experts, which really enhanced my studies and resented future opportunities. The course at Falmouth Marine School helped me change my career and get the job I always dreamed of.”
