OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING 01 May 15

It's been the best university I could have chosen. Cheap city, amazing nightlife, good course, great people, massive student union. If I had my choice, I'd be staying in Cardiff when I graduate because it's made that much of an impact on me.

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING 05 Mar 15

Living as lavishly as possible until you can no longer afford to do so. Trying to take in the culture of Cardiff whilst not getting too distracted from university work. Advice would be to budget your money as its tricky when you have none

Law
OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING 05 Mar 15

I love the city - Cardiff's such a vibrant city to be a student in. I wouldn't advise you to definitely visit to try out the city when you are applying. The law department is really good and there's lot of employers on campus. There's also lots like student media to get involved with - definitely get as involved as you can with extra activities to get an enjoyable and valuable experience

OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING 05 Mar 15

Get the most of the city, you don't have to travel long to keep busy. Get involved with societies. Have a great time and try to balance work and social life, its really important to manage both to get the most out of your uni experience

Psychology
OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING 05 Mar 15

I am loving it, go to the uni because you will miss out so much of opportunity if you don't! Cardiff is a great experience but I'd advise everyone to visit the uni when they are deciding. This psychology department is by far the best I visited, so come and check it out for yourself at an open day

Chemistry
OVERALL UNIVERSITY RATING 02 Mar 15

I love the Student's Union and would have rated it a '6' if I had the option. They sell lots of cheap drinks. I'm also really impressed with my course as there is lots of contact time and help is easy to get. The University facilities are excellent but maps should be provided.
