Cardiff Metropolitan University Reviews

This university is perfect for several courses, including mine (Food Science and Technology) because of the facilities and lecturers. However, as this is a small university, compared to the bigger uni's, the SU isn't given as much attention. Has got good links with industries around south Wales.


The university as a whole is good, the accommodation on campus was good where I was staying bus some halls were poor quality and some were far better it wasn’t a fair set up. My course has been good and the lectures are always willing to help. I haven’t had experience with the careers services or the student union but I believe from others having experienced these they are good. Finally the sports facilities are great, and training is fit well around lecture timings and other activities
