The students union are very helpful! There are lots of clubs, groups and societies to join and lots of activities to take part in. The facilities on campus are very good, with lots being available 24hr.
If you are looking to study in a beautiful, unique and arty location then Falmouth is for you. I am based on Penryn Campus but often go to the Woodlane Campus to get food and art supplies from their amazing shop and beautifully architectural designed building! Both of the campuses are filled with plants and well thought out landscaping. I am studying Textile Design and the FTI (Fashion Textiles Institute) building is so so well designed and equiped with all of the facilities such as digital print, weave, screen print, dye labs, sewing machines, studio spaces, fashion area, fashion photography and fashion marketing. The space is all open planned and you can bounce off other students as there is constant inspiration around you. There is also a sofa area to chill out on if you bring your own lunch. The environment is so chilled in what you would think would be a high stress course. The course also allows you to have your own freedom of choice and doesn't try to direct you to one particular outcome or 'trend'. The student union often throws events at The Stannary, the student bar and hub and I often visited this when living on campus in halls of residents - Glasney, which was a nice introduction into university life. Although I would recommend highly living in Falmouth as this is where all the action is at! I haven't had much contact with the career services yet but am looking into work placements for summer, so I'm sure I shall contact them soon!
