Cardiff is an incredible university, offering numerous opportunities to students to improve their lives whilst studying with opportunities to study abroad, go on adventures with course mates and also chances to win prizes for doing simple tasks as a reward for daily hard work.

Finance, Graduate

good and allowed students to bond and be able to make connections for the future. Also getting a mind for how the course works. Some of the accomadation is old and others a new. They need to refurbish some of the accomadations. The facilities are brilliant. However I would like some of the sports areas to be free of charge. The lectures are brilliant. Some of the lecturers are helpful. The city is very like a small town. There is brilliant vibe of multi-culturism.

It was really mind refreshing and had lots of fun. Met so many people and got a good interaction with them Cardiff university accomodation is really cheap and affordable for the students and provides you with a good exposure We were facilitated with library, sports are where my favorite was badminton court. Student unions is big hub for all the problem solving and all the fun. My lectures were good because the way of teaching was quite interactive and we did a lot of projects which gave us a practical and deep knowledge of the subject I love cardiff. It's just amazing. Cheap fun loving,peaceful and most importantly the people here are so down to earth and greetful.

AMAZING UNI 10/10 recommended

(5)·By Charlotte T·Law· Jun 2023
I cannot recommend Cardiff enough, the student support is excellent, it is the perfect mix of city and campus with a good student community feel and the night life is great (love a yolo silent disco!). I'm a law student and the teaching is fantastic, despite strikes this year my lecturures have gone out of their way to make sure they still deliver the necessary content.

Psychology / Criminology, Year 2

(5)·By Evie C·Psychology· Jul 2021
It was very well planned out, you could choose to buy various freshers bands which gave you tickets to lots of events or just turn up to any yourself. There was something going on pretty much every night for 2 weeks. Talybont was ideal for socialising with big blocks and the possibility of going into each other's kitchens for pre drinks. It was very clean and well organised. The student union is really cool inside, with everything you can imagine being packed in yet still tonnes of space, and even better due to the renovation. The library I used was always very clean and well organised, with helpful staff. The classrooms were clean and spacious, and the sports facilities were amazing. The course is very varied and addresses a wide range of aspects of Psychology in terms of content. The assessments and varied ways of learning are helpful. The lectures are engaging and interactive. The city life is always good, lots of student nights, as well as nice places to eat, drink, chill and shop.

Love the course! My department is amazing and all the staff are so passionate. The course adapts to the staff's research to keep it interesting and inspiring.
The city is an awesome place to be a student; there's a nightclub or bar to suit everyone and it's all super cheap! The university is great - I've been involved in various sports, social, academic and political societies at Cardiff and I've had an amazing time. Can't recommend it highly enough!

Review of Cardiff University

(5)·By Daniel M·Medicine· Jun 2023
I have found Cardiff to be an excellent university for student life. From a wide range of accommodation choices to fantastic student support, I have no regrets about choosing Cardiff. There is no end of clubs available for night life and a long list of inclusive societies with something for everyone.

Biological Sciences, Year 1

So far this year, my university experience has been amazing. I've met loads of amazing new people and my lecturers are amazing! You can tell by their voice how passionate they are about the subject that they teach. Cardiff's night life is equally as amazing as the university; with a range of nightclubs to go to (including the students union on Wednesdays and Saturdays) you can't go wrong with any choice.
