    I have been really tempted to firm Cardiff uni to study Politics and International Relations. However, I am now unsure as Cardiff has dropped in the rankings considerably. This has happened in both the overall uni rankings and the subject rankings. Is there any particular reason as to why this has occurred?

    I can't speak for this particular case but I think you should take rankings with a grain of salt. Your personal compatibility with the living environment and campus community are IMO 20x more important.

    I agree with you - I really like the feel of the university.

    the rankings take into consideration:

    satisfaction with course - important
    satisfaction with teaching - important
    satisfaction with feedback - important
    graduate prospects - important
    % good honours - important etc. etc.

    I know I shouldn't think about the rankings too much but I believe there must be a reason for it to fall so drastically.
