Cardiff University Quora
Since it’s a small city, you get the comfort of community but also the possibility to discover new places all the time.
Students are well looked after by the university with plenty of events and clubs on offer for any of your interests.
Overall, I enjoyed my time there greatly and would recommend it to anyone.
Its a great city, the university union is big and has mostly just been refurbished this year (I think there’s still a tiny bit going on). Nights in the union are a good laugh, though if you want anything different theres always welsh club in town (a good mix of nights), or metros (some more heavy nights) or your mainstream glam (cheesefest mondays), or revs or tiger.
Theres plenty of clubs in the au and societies as well (though I only was part of au clubs). However the union occasionally makes stupid/weird decisions…(I’m looking at you students who wanted to ban BAE systems from campus, or the guys responsible media strike debacle), on a whole the actual union services are excellent.
The university is spread over cathays and as it is a city campus and your never really further than 15 mins from the centre of cardiff walking (unless your a health student). Theres an excess of student accommodation in cardiff as well, and at least in engineering some great opportunities to work during your summer (just ask your professors) or even take a year out in industry.
