An amazing kick start to a new chapter of life. Facilities and environment is brilliant, would definitely recommend people to start their university here!

The campus facilities are steadily improving, however I do notice that the science subjects have far better buildings, classrooms and lecture theatres (I am a humanities student). Though our building has just got a new cafe, it would be nice to see some of our lecture theatres improved with more plug sockets.

Cardiff University is great and I would 100% recommend anyone coming here to study. The university is extremely close to the town centre, which makes it very convenient. The university gym is great and has all the equipment required and the student union provides any support necessary.

Began at Cardiff university in September 2018 to study Children and young People’s Nursing! So far I am loving the course and have learnt so much already. I have done a mixture of lectures, seminars and practical lessons within the university. Each providing me with the skills and knowledge needed to be a children’s nurse. Along with spending 9 weeks on placement on a children’s hospital ward. This was incredible and made me feel like I have chosen the right career path for me. The staff are all really lovely and approachable and I have made a great number of close friends.

Cardiff University is invested in research. It is constantly looking to improve facilities and expand the horizons of undergraduate courses by offering and encouraging involvement in many areas of research. There are a diversity of student led societies supported by the Student Union. Involvement of students coming to university and their introduction to these societies is particularly facilitated by the 'Give it a Go' scheme. University Halls are varied in the experience offered and location around the city. This is well suited to the large area which the University buildings are spread across. There are also a large range of options, from quiet to single sex living. Cardiff University School of Optometry has particular prowess in research and education. It has state of the art facilities available to students throughout the three year Optometry course offered by the University.

I love my course (phyiotherapy) and think the university offers great facilities including a number of 24 hour libraries, a range of sports and societies to join, great nights out and a good understanding of the mix needed between a social life and work at university.

Had the best 4 year at Cardiff University, could not have asked for better. The university halls although were small were the wildest place, and a perfect environment to make friends. loved my undergraduate so much so that I am doing a postgraduate currently and I don't want university to end

Optometry facilities are fantastic. The SU is currently under refurbishment and is thus somewhat lacking. The sports facilities are relatively poor (the gym facilities are old fashioned)

Lots of libraries including ASSL which is open 24hours always space & taking out books is easy. Campus really nice everything very close - clubs shops etc. Exerpience so far excellent

CARDIFF university is an amazing university, as you can have the campus feel in a city. This enables you to have more independence and a sense of empowerment as you are living alone and the world is your oyster. But you are not alone and amongst the societal norms of going to eat out at restaurants and wearing the best clothes, as it is dominantly a student city, so everyone can live the student life and have fun! The students union has been voted the best students union in the UK, as it puts the students needs first. It is very friendly and accessible and has a wide range of societies and is always welcome to people starting up new ones! The student support team is certainly excellent as I know so many people who have benefited from it, and they are extremely understanding with certain life events effecting your degree and ability to succeed. My course is philosophy, and I absolutely love it, the modules, the lecturers everything!

The university is very academic and not great when it comes to preparation for world of work, but the facilities and staff are excellent, and the degree does teach you a lot of things if you're prepared to take advantage of extra curricular.

Great campus just minutes away from the city! The students union is amazing and has everything you need in it!

Overall it's a decent university; the student facilities are good and it's a great city. But the contact time for most courses is not enough; we're now paying £9,000 worth of debt and the quality of teaching and the amount of time we get with our lecturers has not improved. You can't charge students fees but not improve the service you're providing. This is not only an issue in Cardiff but is more of a nationwide issue. The university has done well with creating more services to support student wellbeing and mental health and that's brilliant but they are mostly student led services which can only do so much. I have volunteered at Nightline since my first year and while I think what we and the other SLS' do is crucial and so so important, we can only go so far to help and support fellow students. There needs to be significantly more funding put into the student support and counselling service which does such an amazing job and just needs more money to expand and cut the huge waiting times for students desperately in need of help.

The past four years i've spent ar cardiff uni have without doubt been the happiest time of my life. The location, facilities, events and absolutely everything else about it could not be better. i've made unforgettable memories and met incredible friends which will remain with me for the rest of my life. Thank you Cardiff for making me the person I am today.

The students union building is one of the best in the UK. It is a very big Building which has nearly everything, shops, study spaces and hairdressers, you name it. It also turns into a club in the night! The biological sciences course in Cardiff can do with some improvement, they seem a bit unorganised and the app can do with an update.

Amazing university definitely glad that I choose to go here. Have been supportive throughout my course and the level of teaching is absolutely impeccable. Regularly have the opportunity to gain work experience and complete pro bono work in order to better prepare me for when I come to leave university. Variety of societies and clubs mean that there is something for everyone and I really couldn't imagine going somewhere else.

I absolutely love being a student at Cardiff Univeristy! It's an amazing city with a great university. When I first started, the university were super helpful with getting us enrolled and sorted for the year. I study medicine and it's such a great course, I've had some great experiences. The Students Union is great fun and always have varied events on. When I've required extra help, there's lots of support services on offer which have been a great benefit.

My course is very interesting and the lecturing is high quality. I will gain a lot of skills and knowledge that will aid me in my future career.

Cardiff university is a very accommodating uni. The only downfall is their intense desire to progress often leads to the current students needs from being met. Though they eventually solve any problems, they take a lot of time to do so.

Lecturers are experience and good at teaching. However, as always there is the one incomprehensible lecturer. Facilities provided at the sports village is insufficient. There is no swimming pool! That is unacceptable.

Campus is nice to walk around and all the staff are really friendly. The student union is really useful and always have really good events on.
