      The amount of materials we have to pay for despite the 9000 tuition fees. Printing costs an extortionate amount, and you have to buy materials constantly. Also, when I applied to Falmouth University, part of its appeal was the small campus and student body size. The university is now expanding beyond its means and causing concerns for students and friction with locals in the area.

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
