    I’m English and have applied to a uni in Wales. I was all excited and have recently received an offer (yet to accept). However, after speaking to a few people who have gone to university in Wales (and left due to bad experiences), they’ve convinced me I’ll be hated and ignored because I’m English. A few questions- do only welsh people go to universities in Wales? Do welsh people, specifically welsh students, hate English students?

    I have a group of friends who have all gone Bangor university, all of which are English, and are having a positive experience as far as I'm aware.

    Not quite the same level, but I’m English and go to a comprehensive school in Wales and Welsh students have always been welcoming enough. I would say they are quite nationalistic though, so you’d definitely stand out if there’s an England vs Wales match😂
    In all seriousness, most of my best friends are Welsh and I definitely wouldn’t say Welsh students hate me for being English

    Naa. All banter aside us Welsh don’t really mind the English too much.

    Except Plaid Cymru.

    As an English student who went to Bangor University, I never had any problems. Your friends may be scare mongering a little bit.

    Hey 5050

    As a Welsh student born and bred (but now studying in Sheff), I can confirm that you won't be genuinely judged for your nationality. Would definitely expect some banter back and forth regarding it though.

    Very North Wales are a little more critical about people who aren't Welsh, but it's really not the end of the world.
