    Just finished 1st year at Cardiff, lived in Talybont South. Willing to answer any questions no matter how small, wish I'd had the same last year!

    Hi, I'm currently looking at Cardiff and City University London for 2017 entry and I have some questions.
    1) Did you enjoy the first year of the course?
    2) Did you feel like you missed out by not having a more practical course? (I've heard that Cardiff is 100% academic)
    3) What made you choose Cardiff over other universities?
    Thank you

    Hi! Yes I really enjoyed first year and felt I learnt a lot about the basis of journalism which was essential knowledge if you want to go into media. I don't feel like I missed out as I got involved with student media in order to get the practical side, this means you could write for a newspaper/magazine, host a radio show or do TV presenting. I chose Cardiff cause I loved the city and it's rated top for journalism in the country! I don't regret my choice at all! Let me know if you need any more details
