Workshops are helpful and innovative, technicians are always happy to help students make work to detailed and often difficult specifications. The two libraries at both Tremough and Woodlane are extensive, and books can be sent from one to the other to make it easy for students. Range of creative software very extensive, along with tasters/introductions/ tuition programmes that go with each one.×

It's great, you really get your money worth of teaching. I'm in uni 9:30-4:30 everyday and the tutors are always there. Doing a creative course, the course is very much coursework based but we also have a theory side of the course which goes alongside our coursework and is really beneficial. As a student at Falmouth, you have access to all the facilities at both campuses, whether or not you are a student in a specific studio where you want to use the facilities! The course is exciting and challenging, I could never get bored of it!×
Not much choice and I do not recommend to someone who is used to used to big nights out or in city nightlife.Report

Lecturers seem disinterested and grades are run and organised really badly, you don't always get a grade given to you at the end of the year which is bad as its important to know how you are doing; the 'media' side of an 'English with Media' degree isn't actually anything to do with media at all and is more cultural studies, no media newspapers or news are studied etc...; and no help from lecturerds when needed, all essays tend to be marked on ability to quote theories from post colonial and post modernism and other cultural and political studies rather than your ability to decode a book...×

The course facilities are amazing, and are really easy to book out when needed! Teaching time could be more frequent as more hours would be beneficial if you are not used to the way of working, essays and theoretical lectures are interesting and leaving you wanting to know more! We recurve good feedback from our lecturers and can always request more time to see our lecturers on a one to one basis.×
mostly pubs and just one club xReport

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.
