Falmouth University and Falmouth & Exeter Students' Union take on the BRIT 2021 Challenge

We are absolutely thrilled that students and staff at Falmouth University have embraced the BRIT 2021 Challenge with such enthusiasm.

Their support has been absolutely fantastic; to date, The Falmouth & Exeter Students' Union, Falmouth University Business Services, Falmouth University's Student Advisory Service and the FXPlus Student and Library Services (the Library for Falmouth University and the University of Exeter on the Cornwall and Penryn Campuses) have all entered teams to encourage as many students and staff as possible to participate in the challenge.

“When Falmouth University hosted the BRIT 2020 Row Britannia Challenge and met the BRIT Founder, Phil Packer MBE, we brought together a Coordination Group that comprised of key individuals who represented our students, staff and the departments who would allocate resources to promote the Challenge and make it a success.


Our Coordination Group included myself, representing our Leadership Team, and our Director of Student and Academic Services, the Falmouth University Students’ Union President, and our Head of Sports and Nursery Services.


We are delighted that BRIT will be delivering the BRIT 2021 Challenge in support of young adult mental health. By bringing together a Coordination Group, Falmouth University can promote the opportunity for all students and staff to take part on campus, or at home, to both improve their mental health and raise vital funds for BRIT’s partner mental health charities.”

We wish all the teams, and every student and staff member taking part, the very best of luck with their 2,021 mile targets and their fundraising efforts.


Thank you so much for all your tremendous support.
