OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING01 Mar 15
Cardiff University is a good place to go. Cardiff is a great city to be in, with everything a student could need on the doorstep. The university has all the facilities that could be needed.
There are quite a few opportunities, especially in MAs and further study. The careers service also trys hard to help.
Course and Lecturers
The history course is good and the modules are interesting. The staff are quite approachable, however there are only a few contact hours a week. I had 5 in the second year and 6 in the third.
The student union organises lots of events, from gigs to club nights 4 nights a week. As well as a bar open nearly all the time.
The uni accommodation is ok with lots to choose from, but I did not particularly enjoy the halls. Housing is good in Cardiff, being much more fun than the halls.
The librarys are good, although can get quite busy depending on the time of year. There are quite a lot of computers and you can usuallu find one. The sports facilities are restricted to two areas, which is great if you live near them, but otherwise not so great.
Cardiff is a great city to be in. There is anything you could need, shops, bars, clubs, cinemas and all within easy wallking distance.
Clubs and Societies
The uni has lots of societies and sports clubs. I was a member of the history and film club, which were both good, although don't have too high expectations of any of the societies.
Having said what you have said would you recommend your uni?
