About Falmouth & Exeter Students' Union

We currently have over 10,000 students, studying with Falmouth University or the University of Exeter Cornwall. During their time at university, the majority of students will interact with The Students’ Union and participate in our activities in some way, whether it’s through joining a sports club or society, volunteering or fundraising within the local community, attending an event, or receiving advice on such matters as finance, housing and intermitting.

Our advertising platforms

Social Media

With a selection of active social media platforms, we can tailor our advertising offering to your business and message, aiming to reach a relevant and engaged student audience who will relate to your message.

Our most popular platform is Instagram. We can schedule posts to post to the grid and/or Instagram stories depending on your campaign requirements. For just £50* per grid post and £50* for 5 Instagram stories, your message can be shared with our students. We can also post your message on our Facebook page for just £50* a post.

In the interest of transparency, we will start your post with 'SPONSORED POST'. Please forward text exactly as you’d like it to appear with a link or image.

In the interest of being consistent in our messages to students, we will only feature one advert on Instagram and one on Facebook per week.

Following last year, we will continue to offer ad space at peak times during Freshers. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to reach students at their most engaged.

*£75 during September

We can feature one advert per week exclusively (alongside other SU content) on the rolling banner of our website’s homepage — which can click through to your own specified URL.

You can also book exclusive slots during the Freshers period. Prices are £200/advert in September and £150 October-August.
