Falmouth University Student Union
Falmouth and Exeter Student’s Union is a membership-led charity; run by students, for students. We are the only students’ union in the country to represent students from two different universities.
We aim to ensure that every student has the highest quality of education and best student experience possible during their time studying in Cornwall. We provide representation for all our students and deliver quality services that meet the needs and interests of an ever-changing and diverse student population.
“We will be an integral part of every student’s journey. We will constantly evolve in response to student demands with innovative solutions. We will strive to achieve a degree of financial independence by 2020.”
“Your Students’ Union is the open door to all your questions; to opportunities and advice. We empower you to exceed your expectations and personal aspirations.”
FXU represents you
The student voice is at the heart of everything we do! Although we are quite a small SU, we have one of the highest levels of student participation in the country. Your elected representatives are here to listen to you and speak on your behalf to the University and other institutional bodies. They work hard to ensure your voice is heard!
We make your student experience more enjoyable
FXU provides societies, sports clubs, volunteering opportunities and chances to be politically active and represent your course mates and colleagues. We also organise a wide range of events and activities specifically for you. We aim to provide something for everyone – but if you can’t find what you are looking for, you can always propose something new. It’s your Union!
FXU supports you
Life at University can sometimes be challenging. FXU offers confidential and objective support and advice on anything from financial concerns, to welfare, to accommodation and course queries, at any stage of your degree. We are here for you from the run up to the first time you arrive here, right up until the day you graduate.
