    Hi,I would also like opinions on this school. I got accepted into the MA Film and Television program and wanted opinions on that vs AUB. I know the distance for Falmouth is a killer especially from the airport to campus.

    So, here's my conclusion about Falmouth BA Photography and its advantages and downsides in my opinion. I am an applicant for 2018 with an unconditional offer who has visited for an Open Day.

    Good:
    Ranked overall in top 1/4 of Uni's by Guardian Uni's
    Small class sizes (12.3 per teacher)
    High teacher satisfaction (90.2%)
    Incredible campus
    One of the biggest stores of photography equipment in Europe, with free rental for students.
    Lovely location - Cornish countryside.
    Amazing facilities - one of the best in England.
    Student run photography business that all students can accept and do work for - one of the only successful ones in the country.
    78 % in a career after 6 months.
    Good accommodation options on Campus and in town.
    Town busses are owned by the University, and so day travel cards are £1 for students.

    Bad:
    6 hours out of London where most second year work placements will be.
    Bad place to create a network - where you study for Uni will be the starting point of your creative career and so professional work opportunities locally are crucial for post-degree employment.
    Little to none student work available in the town.
    I'm from Reading, and so it's a killer journey to make.
    Night life when compared to Cities.
    Ranked 21/65 for Photography courses (bad when compared to my other offers Middlesex and UWE)

    Hope this helps in some decision making!
