Being so close to the city centre, the Law School is situated in a perfect location and is pretty close to other amenities such as the Student Union. Thus, it offers a wonderful experience to its students and I really would recommend it to anyone! Read full Cardiff University review »

Cardiff University
Radiography (Diagnostic and Imaging) BSc (Hons)

Overall rating: 5 5stars
a course with a purpose
pick a degree you can get a job with, don't just go to uni to buy time until you have to be an adult.
I enjoy my course because of the practical element and the knowledge that I will always be able to find work.
