    Cardiff offer quite a lot of different scholarships and bursaries- different academic schools at cardiff have different scholarships and stuff so Id look on their website and find what schools offer what at Cardiff
    I'm finding it so hard to find anything for the school of Computer Science and Informatics :puppyeyes: I literally just keep going around the site in circles.

    Ive applied for maths, and was thinking of takybont gate - thankfully I drive so the walk isnt a problem for me. Or one of the accomodations that are close to the maths building
    Ah, having a car must be so convenient for you! I'd be relocating from London though so I don't think moving my car with me would be worth the hassle, though it would make carrying my suitcases and all a hell of a lot easier to do.

    Yeah the scholarship info can be quite hard to find - if you email the school they usually get back to you really quick!

    And yeah, a car if really handy! Some accomodations have parking so its worth thinking about bringing it. Although, pretty much everything you need is probably in Cardiff, and the actual uni buildings (not accomodation) is based in the city centre so everythings within walking distance, or a short bus ride away

    Hhah I was meant to ask all of this on the visit day but I was so preoccupied asking other questions about the course, the area and where I could live! I'll be sure to do that though, thanks.

    Yep, Colum Hall has limited parking spaces what are the bus fares like? This is coming from someone whose spent their life not paying for anything-very little to actually having to pay every time I travel :lol: also, are the buses regular?

    I have got tiny legs, so another reason why I won't be applying. :nope: It does look very modern, but I'm thinking about practicality because I'll need to catch the train 3/5 days a week for a 10am start.

    Ah yeah that's true, I'll probably create a thread later asking about Abedare.

    Also, do Cardiff offer any other types of scholarships except for the merit one if you get AAA in A level or £1,000/annum bursaries? I feel like what they offer to students is so limited in comparison to other unis like say, Swansea who offer money to 'the most promising first year', £500 if you had a great interview, cash and book prizes etc.

    I'm going to study Software Engineering What do you study?
    I'm afraid I have no idea about scholarships as nothing applied to me hehe
    Interesting. Philosophy

    Up until your 19th birthday you can get youth tickets (so just say youre 18) haha. Youth singles are £1.30, youth day to go £2.40, youth week to go £9, or slightly cheaper if you have an iff card. All of this is on the Cardiff Bus website - and prices are a bit higher if you travel just outside of cardiff to places like Barry. The trains are also fairly cheap, but prices depend on how far youre travelling

    I applied for Mechanical Engineering and have an interview I'm from Cardiff 🤓


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Nice one! I have also applied for MEng at Cardiff, just got an interview today! What date are you going for, do you think it will matter if I went for one of the later ones? I'm worried that by then most places will have filled up!

    I want to do Maths at Cardiff hopefully! But I am not sure about Bath or Cardiff as Uni's which is better do you think?
    Bath in general is more prestigious and very popular for Maths (since they require STEP and are flooded by applicants with very high grades).

    One reason I chose Cardiff was due to the fact the city is much cheaper to live in (Bath is very expensive). In terms of course structure both uni offer the same compulsory modules, but Bath has more option for first years.

    I've just been looking at the areas surrounding Cardiff - Radyr Woods, Penarth, Barry Island etc. and I actually think that it'll break my heart if I don't get in now before I didn't mind as long as I got into either Cardiff or Aberystwyth but now...

    I'm never gonna get ABB (thanks to Psychology )

    I've fallen in love with it completely, rather than being equally in love with two

    You have a few months until the A2 exams. Why is it an impossibility for you to get ABB?

    Because of Psychology! I can barely remember anything we've done and every time I even think about it I start to panic. I can't imagine getting anything above a C Arrrrgggggghhh!

    I've got the question structures nailed (according to my teacher) but what's the use of that if I can't remember everything?

    Yes, but you have plenty of time before the exams to get your head around it, so what's the problem? It's only a matter of revision, practice, revision, practice...

    My issue is that if I can't remember what we've done in the first section, how am I supposed to remember double that information plus stress/anxiety in the exam? I'm probably worrying way too much and if I put my mind to it and actually started revising I'd remember a lot more but at the moment I'm kinda in a vicious cycle where I can't revise because I'm panicking, but then I'm panicking because I'm not revising

    You'll recover, just give it time. The exams are a good 4 - 6 months away so you have plenty of time to stop panicking. In the meantime, just take baby steps towards it.

    University admissions get holidays, too.

    They usually close around 20-24th December and reopen around the 5-7th January.
