The Student Room Group

So stuck - Leeds Arts or Falmouth?

Have places for BA Illustration at both and it's like comparing chalk and cheese. Please help me pick!

Falmouth is probably the more sought after course and the town is so lovely but very small.

Leeds is a great student city and much nearer my home (distance and atmosphere) but I am worried the Arts university itself is tiny and could feel stifling.
Congratulations on your offers! Our BA (Hons) Illustration is a fantastic course that allows you to carve out your niche as an innovative illustrator while gaining the professional skills needed to meet the demands of the creative industries.

Although we are smaller than some other universities, this means you will be part of a close-knit community with opportunities to collaborate with other creatives. From filmmakers to fashion designers, photographers to musicians, artists to designers; anything feels possible here.

In addition, Leeds is a great city to study in, with a thriving arts community. We have a great range of cafes, shops, green spaces and galleries right on our doorstep. You can check out some of our favourite spots here: https://www.leeds-art.ac.uk/life-in-leeds

I hope that helps and if you have any more questions, please let me know!

Leeds Arts University Rep! 😀
