Being born and raised in West London, I’m used to being around people of my own ethnic origin which enables a sense of comfort. I’ve been offered a place for Geography with Planning at Cardiff Uni (it’s pretty much my only choice for specific reasons) but after the open day I felt so uncomfortable being the only person of colour in a room of so many people. I received several strange looks from people and I felt like I stuck out like a sore thumb!

I’ve received all five offers (acceptance from Queen Mary, Leeds Beckett, Birmingham and Reading) but Cardiff is the only suitable degree which is credited by the Royal Town Planning Institute which will save me having to do a postgraduate degree but staying in London would mean a lot more diversity and I’d be closer to home but simultaneously I want to experience something new. Ughhhhhhh...

Advice? Help!!

Hi,
I've lived in Cardiff for all of my life and can tell you that it is probably just as diverse as London. I'm pretty sure that you'll be able to find people to hang around once you've entered Uni and open days don't do justice as they could be people from other places, not just Cardiff.

BTW I've also applied to Cardiff Uni!!

Yeah true this is why I’ll most likely wait for the offer holder day before making a decision. What are you applying for?
