    What do you want from a uni? where do you live now? do you want to be far from home or close to home?

    I live in Salisbury I have no problem with being far from home. My boyfriend however has applied to Nottingham so that puts some favour on Manchester. Out of my uni I want a good degree, a good social life, a good metal music scene and accomodation which is close by,

    Manchester. You will be close to your boyfriend and still have all that you have written and more.

    Hey, unrelated but I'm 99% sure I spoke to you on the interview day at Cardiff (I was the girl from Cardiff wearing a headscarf!)

    Just from rankings for the school and it's research (which is important as you'll be doing a masters project) Cardiff beats Manchester on those points.

    Really nice atmosphere! There's plenty of shopping, restaurants and cinemas, we have loads of fun stuff to do in and close to Cardiff (mini-golf, arcades, concerts, go-air, bowling, beaches, etc.). If you're into sports, there's loads of local gyms and Cardiff uni has a bunch of sports clubs.

    As for living costs, it's pretty cheap compared to the big cities in England and we have buses and trains going through out the city and surrounding areas. There's a bunch of budget supermarkets that are great for students (home bargains, Aldi, lidl).

    I'm not very familiar with the clubs and drinking in Cardiff (cause I don't drink) but my friends say it's really fun and that there's a good selection of places to go to!

    Wales in general is really pretty and there's loads of parks, my favourite (although I'm biased cause I grew up going there) is Roath park - it has a lake that you can row on.

    The people are really friendly and helpful here so if you ever find yourself lost/in need of general help it's really easy to find a solution. So yeah, I think a lot of people over-look us in Cardiff because it is in Wales but there's loads you can do and it's a really nice place to live.

    It's big enough as a city so there's plenty to do but not so big that you'd feel overwhelmed
