CoLab is for making connections, collaborating, and creating extraordinary student-led projects.

Who can get

Any current student of Falmouth University or the University of Exeter’s Cornwall campuses with an idea, plan, project, or pitch.

This is a student space, purely intended to enhance and encourage student collaboration across courses and across both universities.

How does it work?

CoLab works by allowing you to post collaborative projects and reach out to your fellow students to share skills and expertise. For example, if you're looking to create an animation but need a unique soundtrack to accompany this, perhaps you’d like to reach out to a music student to create something bespoke. 

Maybe you're a filmmaker wanting to interview a student who's researching the effect of marine plastics. The possibilities are endless - it’s time to work together and learn from each other. CoLab is a platform to get you started. Search for projects relevant to you, and post your projects to get them off the ground.  

How do I get started?

  1. Get your free membership.

    Head over to the membership page and get your free CoLab membership. Once you’ve got this, you’ll be able to post new projects and search the Project Board.

  2. Customise your profile.

    It's worth spending a bit of time setting up your profile and keeping it up to date. You can add a profile picture, contact details plus your skills/experience. You’ll be able to view projects you have submitted and those you have favourited.

  3. Post a project.

    If you have an idea for a project but need another student's skills or expertise, this is where to start. Post your project brief along with tags which can be used to help others find your post. Your project will appear on the Project Board, allowing other students with the relevant skillset to get in touch.

  4. Search for projects.

    Want to use your skills to work on a new project? Use the filters and search options on the Project Board to quickly find opportunities relevant to you. You’ll be able to save projects to your ‘favourites’ so you can check them out later.

  5. Start collaborating.

    See a project you like the look of and have the skills to help make it happen? Contact the project lead and get started!
