The student union is also the cafe, bar , club and food hall. Some things are good value for money, others are awful. Personally, I dislike going to the SU for evenings out when it is a club because it isn't amazingly busy and the atmosphere I severely dislike. You can sit in the SU without buying things in the daytime to my knowledge but entry in the evenings is 3 which I think is a complete rip-off for what it is. Mainly because you can go to a decent club with lots of people and cheaper drinks in most places for that but it is the only place around Farnham like it so they feel it is acceptable to charge that.×

The learnig experience is very relaxed, thoroughly planned and executed, as to give all students equal opportunity. Practical and learning content is equal on the scale of challenge and interest, however outcomes are self-directed and dependent upon student engagement, enthusiasm, hard work and will for success. Most creative academic subjects lack examinations, however numerous essays and practical works will be assessed, and critical tutor/lecturer feedback is always given and can be usually be requested on an individual basis, away from academic study time. At UCA Farnham there are various rooms dedicated to animation. these rooms range from multiple computer suites, to the drawn and practical studio and lecturer rooms, to the dedicated animation research centre which holds rare historic animation artefacts.×

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.
