      The downside

      Use of online teaching. During the first year, there was talk of online lectures when you can't make it, but there doesn't appear to be any progress in this area.

      Variation for places to go out! There aren't a great number of live bands playing in Falmouth which is a real shame

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.
