Cardiff University
8.1 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 110 ratings in 2017)
In a few words
"Cardiff is a brilliant city, not too big and full of parks and green areas. There are loads of things to do, such as museums and the bay. The university is a five-minute walk from the city centre and the accommodation is just a bit further away but still within walking distance. The students' union is great too. It's huge and full of shops, places to eat, a pub and even a night club. There is also lots of space to do work."
