Falmouth University and GWR offer 20% off rail travel to open days

For the first time, Falmouth University has partnered with Great Western Railway to offer prospective students 20% off train tickets for journeys to any 2016 Falmouth University open day.

Choosing the right university can be the biggest decision of a young person’s life and an opportunity to explore the facilities and meet the staff and students already there can be a big help. That’s why friends and family will also be eligible for the discount, which is valid on all GWR Advance Purchase fares, so they too can find out more about the great things happening in the town and on campus.

Commenting on the partnership, Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive of Falmouth University, Anne Carlisle, said, “Falmouth is ranked first for the campus environment in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey and while we know how beautiful and vibrant our towns are, and we know about the exciting work being done by our students and colleagues, it can be hard for people who haven’t visited to imagine how much they would enjoy studying here.

“We’re hugely grateful to GWR for making travel to our open days even easier, so more prospective students can come and have a taste of life at Falmouth.”

David Gardner, Partnerships Manager at GWR said, “The railway has always been a vital link between home and university for millions of students while they study, often allowing young people their independence for the first time.

“We hope that this link up with Falmouth will encourage more people to take the train and demonstrate the great connectivity rail travel provides both across the GWR network and beyond.”
