First Cornish university
UNIVERSITY College Falmouth (UCF) is to be granted full university status. Universities Minister David Willetts announced that subject to final approval by the Privy Council, UCF would become Falmouth University, Cornwall's first, by the end of the year. Its rector Professor Anne Carlisle said: "Achieving full university title has been one of our key goals and speaks volumes for the quality of our teaching, facilities and governance. It is also the culmination of the efforts of many in Cornwall who have supported our aspirations over several years."
