Has a capital city feel without the overpopulation or size that this usually comes with. A very wide selection on nights out/ bars etc, as well as other facilities in the city centre. Average cost of a pint is around £3, cheaper in Cathays/ Roath near the university.

Cardiff has a great nightlife whatever you are looking for, plus it’s super cheap. There is plenty of shopping right from high street shops to designer.

Having to live in Wales and 40 minutes away from my university, I am not biased AT ALL. Cardiff is such a lively city, filled with activities to do so you don't get bored. Universities here are within bus and walking distance, the people are lovely. The best thing about the location is how diverse it is, also you'll find yourself fitting into any cultural backgrounds just being you! Everyone is so accepting and if you get to know Cardiff well enough, I'm sure you will feel as safe as I do. Like I said, there are many places to be and things to do from Cardiff International Pool for swimming or health suite to St.David's Shopping Centre with a lot of high street shops, as well as budgeted and affordable places to coincide with your student budgets. My favourite is the Roath Park, all parks in Cardiff like Bute Park are beautiful due to the Castle but nothing beats a lake, ice-cream, ducks, paddle boats and a lovely long walk to cure your hangovers in Roath, I'd totally recommend it! Visit Cardiff for a few days or so, staying in cheap hotels in the centre to find out more for yourself - it's 100% worth it!

Cardiff is amazing there's so many things to do; rooftop mini golf, escape rooms, Cardiff Castle etc. I'm originally from London and so I am used to amazing transport, Cardiff is poor in comparison with not enough bus routes and not regular enough trains. There are great nights out, there is something for everyone. The alternative bars and clubs are wicked! Theres 1000s of places to eat whether you have a chain you really like or want to try a local eatery there are so many great places to eat!

I absolutely love living in Cardiff. There’s such amazing shops and night life over here and it’s really great being not too far away from home as well as being in a city which also has a bay which has an incredible view and it’s not too far to go to a beach in the summer. As it’s a capital I feel the city has a lot to offer and there’s always things going on which I really like!

Many supermarkets around. Good value for money at supermarkets. Good night out can be had in main town. Most student flats are close to University. Good shopping available in town. Only drawback is how dirty the streets can get from rubbish.

The location of Cardiff Uni is very nice, which is near to the city centre and other amenities you need. You can get high quality of food, shopping, or pub in a relatively low price.

The location of Cardiff Uni is very convenient. I can cycle everyday to school easily. Since it's near the centre of town, many shops and pubs are easily accessed so that I can enjoy nights out and shopping. Beautiful parks and castle close to uni, I can have a run regularly after school. I like museum as well, and the national museum is just 4 min walk from where I study. Perfect!

I chose to come to Cardiff because I wanted to experience busy city life without being in a big area that required public transport to get around to places. Cardiff is a beautiful city that ticks those boxes - the fast-paced city life and small enough to walk everywhere you need to go! There's plenty to do, with lots of non-commercial coffee shops and cocktail bars and places to eat. It's always fun when the rugby's on too! Cardiff is also one of the cheapest places to live, which means you can spend more on the fun stuff!

Fantastic nights out, various different places to eat food including big chains like Tgi Fridays and Frankie and Bennys. A really good shopping centre with over 100 shops right the centre of cardiff with loads of activities such as mini golf where students get 20% discount and a deal for after 5pm on week days. Bowling and laser tag in the cinema plaza with great deals on certain days in the week also.

So many new places to eat whether you are a full on meat eater (cafe brazil) a vegan (ATMA) or anything in between. Cardiff has all the high street shops that a bigger city would but they're in a much smaller area meaning less walking, charity shopping is made easy with Albany Road being full of them. Cardiff is also great for living nearby to friends, everyone moves to Cathays for 2nd and 3rd year and that means that your friends will be a max 15 min walk away!!

Cheap, fun, varied nights out. Something for all to do, be it the castle or world class rugby or sport. Decent shopping too, St. David's centre is a highlight.

The student afea is a perfect location with everything you could need within walking distance. Theres lots of shops and take aways to choose from within a 2/3minute walk of most houses within the student areas. Lots of diverse music events being run by different promotions, meaning you don't have to do the standard boring clubs!
