Cardiff is an amazing place for students, with loads of great nights on and plenty of unique shops. There’s also the amazing Welsh coast an hour away, and lovely hiking and biking on the Brecon Beacons if you’re not all about partying. It can either be a party university or a more relaxed small city surrounded by lovely countryside, your choice! The university has a great, intimate community vibe, not too far from the city centre, and with passionate and dedicated staff who really push you academically.
