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!
